Chile wins the prize “Best Green Destination in the World”
For the first time since the World Travel Awards were delivered, Chile was awarded as the best green destination in the world.
But this is not the only prize that the so-called southern country of the world received. It was also chosen for the fifth time as the best adventure destination in South America. And the Atacama Desert was consecrated, for the second consecutive year, as the most romantic destination.
The national director of Sernatur, Andrea Wolleter, said that “these awards are a reflection of the work we have promoted together with the industry to position Chile as an unmissable destination and highlight the differentiating characteristics that position us as a unique place”.
The World Travel Awards are delivered by popular vote since 1993 to recognize world tourism and are considered the Oscar of the field.
