World Travel Awards – GreenGo travel for Ecuador’s Leading Travel Agency 2021

The 2021 World Travel Awards vote has officially come to a close, with announcements of the top travel organizations across the world. Based in London, the World Travel Awards brand is recognized globally as the hallmark of industry excellence. The votes come from qualified executives working within travel and tourism and the everyday travelers from around the globe. Like the Oscars, the travel award ceremony is split into various categories – leading airlines, honeymoon hotspots,  beach resorts, car rentals, you name it. In this article, we’ll be naming some of the winners of the top categories in South America.

The Winners of South America

South America’s Leading Hotel 2021

The Sofitel Legend Santa Clara is a luxury five-star hotel located in one of the most beautiful destinations in South America, Cartagena, Colombia. The historical walled city was deemed a UNESCO world heritage site  in 1984, and the beautiful design and top-of-the-line amenities match the splendor of the city. If you’re traveling through Colombia, no doubt the Sofitel is a trustworthy hotel for your stay.

South Americas Leading Airline

The last two years have been hectic for airlines, with unruly passengers grounding flights, and massive delays due to COVID-19 and staff shortages. Airlines like LATAM were able to maintain their composure and come out on top in South America, offering clients the best in service while keeping flights going as usual during tough times.

Winner of South America’s Leading Eco-Lodge

The world travel awards announced the Mashpi Lodge in Ecuador as South America’s top Eco-lodge. It’s no surprise, as the extravagant lodge is situated in one of the most pristine stretches of the Amazon, surrounded by a staggering 500 species of bird, countless reptiles and mammals, including monkeys, peccaries, and even puma. Eco-tourism is becoming more and more popular, as tourists look to immerse themselves in nature and experience wilderness in its purest form.  Eco-lodges mix in luxury – 5-star lodgings, delicious locally sourced meals, spas, and more – with nature, including cultural experiences with indigenous populations, nocturnal hikes, and canoe rides through the jungle.
