“Playa del Carmen is one of the most important diving destinations in the world, thanks to the vibrant marine life and the dazzling underwater caves,” says the list of winners in the Travelers’ Choice 2018 travel site.

This destination competed with others such as Bali, Crete, Barcelona and Prague.

“The site considered millions of opinions and comments from travelers who choose “the best of the best” in terms of service, quality and customer satisfaction, from hotels and accommodations to destinations, attractions and even brands and products”, TripAdvisor states on its website.

In this regard, the mayor of Solidaridad, Siku Cristina Torres Gómez, said that this award is the sum of efforts of the business sector, service providers, workers and government.

Therefore, along with the promotion of the destination, and the continuous training of the local tourism industry staff, paid by the private initiative; social actions are strengthened, such as the recovery of public spaces, the improvement of municipal services, and the reinforcement of security using state-of-the-art technology for the benefit of visitors and locals.

Playa del Carmen is visited by more than four and a half million travelers per year.

Finally, the mayor stressed out that the General Directorate of Civil Protection coordinates surveillance operations carried out by municipal, state and federal agencies, in order to provide orientation, help or assistance to vacationers on the road, beach, tourist area or in downtown Playa.
