MEXICO CITY, Oct. 7, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — After just one year of operation, Jungala Aqua Experience—Grupo Vidanta’s innovative luxury outdoor park—was recognized by the World Waterpark Association (WWA) with the ‘Leading Edge’ award for its creativity in developing striking new concepts in water attractions and its extraordinary breadth of offerings, services, and facilities.
The Board of Directors of WWA, an international non-profit association created in 1981, meets every year with owners, operators, suppliers, and promoters of water parks to identify and honor the best representatives throughout the industry, recognizing their excellence in operations, leadership, safety, facilities, creativity, and innovation. And just one year after opening, Jungala Aqua Experience has been awarded this prestigious recognition, which reinforces its leadership and positioning in Mexico and the world.
Some of the key factors that contributed to Jungala Aqua Experience being recognized with the ‘Leading Edge’ award include its wonderful new dining concepts, private concierge service, a sophisticated spa, luxurious VIP cabanas located throughout the park, and a collection of world-class attractions, including the longest lazy river in Latin America, a wave pool with waves up to 1.5 meters high, and the Aqua Play Rain-Fortress, the largest interactive play structure in the world.
“It is an honor to have been recognized with this outstanding award within one year of opening, which not only speaks to Grupo Vidanta’s contributions to distinguishing Riviera Maya as a destination, but communicates an important message to the world that Mexico is at the forefront of global entertainment with its first-class offerings,” said Iván Chávez, executive vice president of Grupo Vidanta. “Jungala Aqua Experience was created to offer exclusive and innovative vacation experiences to visitors that provide the highest quality and personalized service at all times. This award gives important recognition to the entire team that makes it possible,” he added.
Surrounded by nature and operating under the highest and strictest safety standards, the breathtaking setting at Jungala Aqua Experience transports visitors to the dramatic beauty of the jungle, with its towering trees, many caves, lagoons, and waterfalls.
