October 20, 2011 (Montego Bay, Jamaica) – For the 5th straight year, Chukka Caribbean Adventures has taken home the World Travel Award as the Caribbean’s Leading Tour Company.
The 18th annual World Travel Awards were handed out at a VIP gala Wednesday night at Sandals Royal Caribbean Resort & Private Island in Montego Bay. The awards are voted by travel agents worldwide.
President & Founder of the World Travel Awards, Graham E. Cooke, underlined the remarkable resilience of the Caribbean’s travel and tourism economy despite the challenges of the global recession.
“The Caribbean is a textbook example of how the travel and tourism industry can serve an engine for growth, with the ability to steer the region out of one of the most challenging periods in global financial history.
“It is during times of economic uncertainty that world-class brands come into their own, continuing to reinvent themselves and grow market share – traits all shared by tonight’s World Travel Award winners.”
It’s been a banner year for Chukka, which was also named Best Caribbean Tour Operator and Best Caribbean Shore Excursion 2011 by Porthole Cruise Magazine, and a National Champion at the 2011 Jamaica Tourism Service Excellence Awards.
