Ecuador won a new international tourism award: “Green Destination of the World’. It is the name of the recognition that the World Travel Awards presented to the country, in the awards gala which took place in Doha. Ecuador stood out among other candidates as the Archipelago of Fiji Islands, the pink sandy beaches of Trinidad and Tobago and the aurora borealis of Norway.

The Ministry of tourism gave the news in a press release. The importance of this award is that Ecuador won because of its natural beauty in all its regions, and not for a specific location or locations, as it was done before. Last year the winner in this category was the historic sanctuary of Machu Picchu, in Peru.
