The International Food, Wine & Travel Writers Association (IFWTWA) awarded two prestigious Certificates of Appreciation to industry partners in Mexico for their gracious hospitality, continuing education and contributions to the travel & tourism industries.
The businesses chosen for this award were Nizuc Resort & Spa in Cancun and Esencia Estate in Riviera Maya, Mexico.
These certificates were awarded for outstanding work in the hospitality field and exemplary guest services. These resorts provide excellent help to journalists in the form of relevant story ideas, angles, and destination and tour information. They are well-connected with excellent knowledge of the region and proactively stay in touch with journalists.
The above mentioned travel industry partners were very generous in help with arranging travel, hospitality, tour and story suggestions to help complete journalism assignments in Mexico.
According to the IFWTWA’s press releases:
The International Food Wine & Travel Writers Association (IFWTWA) is a dynamic nonprofit organization based out of Southern California. What started out as a small group of prominent Frenchmen rating restaurants in 1956 is now a global network of journalists and photographers who cover the hospitality and lifestyle fields, and the people who promote them.
Members cover a broad spectrum of travel destination attractions such as active and passive adventure activities, ecology, historical features, culture, fairs, festivals, food, wine, and special events. The association’s membership includes professionals in culinary arts and sciences, the wine growing and production industry, and hotel and hospitality management industries.
These businesses are all deemed to be among the best serving Cancun and Riviera Maya and are highly recommended.
Most major airlines fly into Cancun International Airport (CUN) and Riviera Maya is easily accessible from CUN by land transport.
