Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - U.S. tour operator Apple Vacations announced the 2019 Crystal Apple Award winners at its Golden Apple Gala, held Monday at Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry, where the General Director of the Puerto Vallarta Tourism Board, Javier Aranda Pedrero, accepted the 'Best Destination' award on behalf of Vallarta-Nayarit.
The Crystal Apple Award is one of the most sought-after distinctions in the tourism industry since it is awarded based upon an Apple satisfaction questionnaire completed by hundreds of thousands of travelers upon their return home from vacation. Only destinations that offer the highest standards of quality and service, and are simply the best, are awarded the coveted Crystal Apple.
Puerto Vallarta earned this distinction by consistently offering exceptional tourism services. As one of Mexico's most attractive destinations, the Banderas Bay region's steady growth has been accompanied by improved amenities and services, an extensive expansion of its infrastructure, and an increasing number of cultural activities to better serve both the growing number of travelers who visit Puerto Vallarta every year, and the city's ever-growing population.
"We are more than honored to be recognized at such an important industry award ceremony," said Javier Aranda. "We believe this is the result of the welcoming atmosphere offered by Puerto Vallarta's people, the city's authentic Mexican feel and the surprising diversity of attractions and activities our city offers, along with the work that is being done by the Puerto Vallarta Tourism Board team to promote Puerto Vallarta and its tourism offerings on a daily basis."
Unlike many other popular beach vacation resorts, Puerto Vallarta is actually several destinations in one. Situated on the Pacific Coast of Mexico just south of Baja California, the Banderas Bay area's more than 34 miles of incomparable coastline in the states of Jalisco and Nayarit, accommodations for every budget, excellent dining and shopping, and its wide variety of entertainment and events, activities and adventure excursions make it one of the most versatile travel destinations in the world.
