Atlantida Turistica Quality Seal awarded to Restaurants in Atlantida!
Visit Atlantida, the Destination Management Organization that is in charge of the development, marketing and growth of Destination Atlantida, has been steadily working for the past couple of years to upgrade the quality of the different establishments providing tourism services to travelers visiting our destination, which consists of the cities of Tela, La Ceiba and the Cangrejal River Valley.
Efforts have been concentrated in three different categories: restaurants, lodging and tour operators. The most advanced of these groups are the restaurants and it was precisely last Thursday, August 7th when Visit Atlantida held an event in Tela to honor the first 30 eateries that have been awarded the Atlantida Turistica Quality seal.
The event took place in the century old accounting building of the Tela Railroad Company, the most historic building in Tela, which dates back to 1917. There a total of 30 businesses, including some of the most iconic resorts in Atlantida received their awards. It was a true pleasure to see the large resorts, such as Induras Beach and Golf Resort, Telamar Resort, La Ensenada, The Lodge at Pico Bonito, The Hotel Quinta Real and Palma Real Resort, all leading resorts in Atlantida, participate in the event. Even more so where a series of small family owned restaurants that have put their hearts and souls into achieving the leap towards quality receive this award.
Within the Cangrejal River area, the Restaurante La Jungla at Omega Tours Jungle Lodge received this award. Our congratulations to Udo and Silvia from Omega Tours!
The lodging awards will soon follow, and we at La Villa de Soledad are striving to insure that we qualify for this important seal of quality. Keep your eyes open, we will be letting you know when the Atlantida Turistica Quality seal is awarded to lodges and tour operators within Atlantida that provide quality service!
