Mexico conquers once again: Oaxaca, Acapulco, Cancun, Mazatlán, Tijuana, Playa del Carmen, and Mexico City compete in the shortlist of ‘Best Destination to Escape’ in Mexico and Central America of the World Travel Awards 2020  also known as ‘ the Oscars of world tourism ‘, held every year since 1993. To these Mexican charms are added in competition others such as the city of Belize, which is located between the coasts of the Caribbean Sea to the east and dense jungle to the west. Like Panama City and San José in Costa Rica.

The feedback on this shortlist are open until September 24th through the official website of World Travel Awards 2020. Although there are destinations that amaze for their pre-Hispanic wealth, culture, gastronomy, and dream beaches, there are some that stand out for their championship past. Oaxaca, for example, reached first place in the list of best destinations to travel in 2020, according to the Viajala Barometer or the most popular flight and hotel metasearch engine among users. Temple of Santo Domingo in Oaxaca

On the other hand, Playa del Carmen raised the award of the ‘World Tourism Oscars’ in 2017 and 2018 for being the ‘Best Destination to Escape in Mexico and Central America’, while last year it was San José, in Costa Rica. When we talk about the coastal resort of Mexico, located along the Caribbean coast of the Riviera Maya, in the Yucatan Peninsula, we sigh coral reefs and palm trees that adorn its edges. Without a doubt, a destination to travel on the holidays to come. The countdown has begun!
