Apple Vacations Crystal Apple Award Winners

Every fall, for as long as I can remember, Apple Vacations hosts a HUGE trade show for travel professionals in Chicago. By attending this event I meet face to face with the tourism boards and hotels to learn what sets them apart from the competition. The big news this year is the nonstop service from Chicago and Denver to Costa Rica during the winter season! They also announced nonstop service from Lansing to Jamaica and Cancun. There will be exclusive service from Detroit to Punta Cana and Cancun. Alaska Airlines announced  additional nonstop service to Hawaii from  west coast gateways.

More exciting news from the evening's events is the annual Crystal Apple Awards. The receipients are chosen based on the replies from the questionnaires completed by thousands of Apple vacationers nationwide. I tweeted the winners LIVE as John Mullens, President of Apple Vacations personally awarded the following hotels and destinations with this prestigious award: 


Puerto Vallarta, Mexico Best Destination
