Important international magazines, such as Travelzoo, Travel Weekly, Agent@Home, Vacation Agent and TravelPulse recognize Costa Rica as a popular destination worldwide.
For being a sustainable destination, the quality of the tourism services, the large number of adventure options and the preference of tourists were the graded aspects that these magazines considered to award Costa Rica.
For Allan Flores, Minister of Tourism, “the recognitions obtained by the country for its quality of tourism destination represent great news for this new year, which motivates the national tourism sector to continue promoting sustainable development in tourism, the great quality in the services provided and the conservation of natural resources”, according to information provided by the press department of the Costa Rican Tourism Institute (ICT).
“The wow destination for 2012” is how the magazine Travelzoo catalogued Costa Rica due to the increase of airlines that are arriving to the country and its quality and variety of offers and accessibility.
Likewise, the readers of the prestigious magazine Travel Weekly named Costa Rica the best destination of Central and South America in 2011, giving the recognition “Travel Weekly Readers Choice Award”.
Costa Rica was also named the leisure leader destination by the readers of Agent@Home, Vacation Agent and TravelPulse.
This good news allows Costa Rica to start the year with great motivation and a strong commitment to keep working hard for the tourism industry and the country in general.
At Hotel Parque del Lago we celebrate these recognitions by focusing in our quality and service promise with our clients. We want to be the entrance and exit doorway for those who are coming to live this experience called Costa Rica, plenty of culture, nature and people.
The Hotel Parque del Lago is very proud to know that Costa Rica is one of the world leaders in tourism, so travelers are always welcome to visit and take with them part of this Costa Rican paradise.
