Several of Belize’s Resorts Win Regional Awards

Belize has been dubbed Mother Nature’s Best Kept Secret, but repeatedly, our resorts and tourism destinations have been making us proud on the world map among travelers. Just last week, several of our resorts snagged local and regional awards. Today, Director of Quality Management at the Belize Tourism Board, Abil Castaneda, has the names of the winners.

“The ceremony for awards for the Caribbean and Latin America were held in Jamaica. So at those awards we were happy to learn that Belize won in two of the regional categories. The first one was that Belize won as the number one diving destination in the Mexico/Central American region, which was the region that competed. So we are number one region. I’m very happy about that. Then we also learned that one of our properties in Placencia, the Elysian Boutique Hotel won the Boutique Hotel of the Year (award) for 2022 in Mexico and Central America as well. Now also they do – for each of the major countries in the region, they do a national awards selection as well for about three categories. So for Belize, the three categories – the three winners under the Belize award were also selected and were presented at that gala. For Leading Hotel, the San Ignacio Hotel won as the leading hotel in Belize. There’s also a category for Leading Resort for Belize and Last Terrazas in Amberbris Caye won that for Belize in that category. And the last category that was featured for Belize on its own was the Leading Villa Resort property and that was won by Turtle Inn in Placencia. So the Belize Tourism Board – we really want to congratulate all the winners.”
