This year’s global vote has truly been amazing.
The day before voting ended, it was a tie for first place!!
But, in the end, after hundreds of people from 422 cities
around the world voted,
we have the 2018 EcoTripMatch.com “Best Nature Tour Guide”.
Carlos Bethancourt, Panama City, Panama
The award will be engraved, shared here in a couple weeks, then sent to Carlos, along with the Swarovski Optik binoculars!
Because the vote tally was so close, I also want to acknowledge the guide who was a very close second. Derrick Nabaala, fromKenya, also received an outpouring of global support.
