Jamaica shines in World Travel Awards 2010

The quality travel products offered by Jamaica won great accolades during the recently concluded World Travel Awards. The World Travel Market was held in London between 7 to 10 December and the awards were part of the events.

Jamaica was recognized as the leading travel destination in seven world categories including World's Leading Beach Destination - Montego Bay, World's Leading Cruise Destination, Worlds Leading Villas, World's Leading Family All Inclusives and World's Leading Caribbean Attractions Company.

Usain Bolt, the fastest sprinter in the world, also walked away with the coveted Face of Travel Award for being part of Jamaica’s ad campaign ‘Once You Go You Know.’

Jamaica welcomes more than one million visitors to its shores every year. Tourism is one of the leading industries on the island and the government has been aggressively promoting its travel products through out the world using innovative means and technology. The latest feather in its cap was a 3D marketing film which was showcased during the event. By this, Jamaica became the first country to ever showcase itself as a destination using the 3D technology.

The events, film and other promotional activities have ensured great curiosity and interest in Jamaica as a country and the locals are optimistic that the interest will translate into higher booking for their tours and accommodation.

In fact, the island prides itself in providing unique travel experiences to its visitors and in a step in the direction provides a complete spectrum of rentals in Jamaica comprising private villas in Jamaica, cottages and apartments perfect for all tastes, budgets and group sizes.

Some rentals like the Silver Sands in Jamaica encompass their own stretch of pristine white sandy beach and are perfect for those who come to the island for a beach holiday. In fact going by the reviews of some satisfied guests at Silver Sands, the beach here can give a stiff competition to the beaches in Montego Bay. This is a great compliment when you consider that Montego Bay has been voted as the best beach destination in the world.

Jamaica takes it over all as the top honors in several major categories of 2010 world Travel Awards America. It is the jewel of Caribbean, and you cannot ignore the fact that there was a tough competition in each category. Thanks...
