Yucatan goes after four awards in tourism magazine contest

Surely tourism in Yucatan is experiencing a high moment, as it is recognized as one of the best destinations in Mexico. But it lacks the backing of turisteros, visitors and Yucatecans to have such accreditation.

The prestigious tourism magazine Food and Travel included Yucatan this year in the catalog of the best destinations in the country and nominated it for awards in four of its eight categories. These are:  Merida Gourmet as best culinary destination; Yucatan as best tourist destination; Rosas & Xocolate hotel, best urban hotel in the interior of the country, and Xixim hotel, best ecological hotel in the country.

The nomination by itself in the virtual competition will promote Yucatan because thousands of “netizens” will vote for the nominees, and if they win they expect their prestige will take off like “wildfire.”
