Chile dazzles with its natural diversity and its commitment to sustainability, reasons for which it seeks to win the World's Leading Green Destination crown at the World Travel Awards for the second consecutive year.

The prestigious awards that highlight destinations and tourist products of excellence, this year nominated our country in three other categories: Adventure Destination, Nature Destination and Romantic Destination for the Atacama Desert.
For the Undersecretary of Tourism, Verónica Pardo, “we should feel proud as a country to be nominated again in these categories, because we have the natural riches to be world leaders and it is a recognition of the continuous effort to preserve and enhance the beauty that has been ours. confident We know that we are capable of maintaining the award given to us at the World Travel Awards as best green destination, but also of recovering that of adventure destination, and why not become winners, for the first time, of the other two nominations. Whatever the outcome, we must remember the responsibility we have in the conservation and regeneration of places and in caring for our country.” Voting will be open until Friday, November 17 on the worldtravelawards.com site. Simply register and select the categories in which the country is nominated.

We invite everyone to be part of this achievement by voting for Chile in the World Travel Awards, to maintain this position and, in this way, more people have Chile as their next travel destination," urged Cristóbal Benítez, national director of Sernatur.
