In coordination with the local Convention and Visitors Bureau, the UTPP (Technological University of Puerto Peñasco) has launched a contest for students in the UTPP’s culinary and business development programs where they can win one of two cruise packages featuring trips to the Caribbean and Alaska.
The contest consists in developing a research project concerning benefits for Puerto Peñasco in becoming a cruise destination, while also investigating areas of sustainability, tourism markets, services that should be offered, length of stays, and other important topics to consider once the city’s home port becomes operational.
Héctor Vázquez del Mercado, Puerto Peñasco Convention and Visitors Bureau President, emphasized the opportunity this contest represents for UTPP students in offering the possibility to travel to Alaska, or the Caribbean, and live firsthand how a cruise works.
Marisela Luna, UTPP Academic Director, detailed students must register to participate by February 22nd. She noted judging will be done by individuals specializing in the areas of tourism and the cruise industry.
In addition, the winning “cruise goers” from among the students will be required to do a presentation about their experience and opportunities the cruise ship home port may represent for Puerto Peñasco.
