The Miss Tourism 2013 Final took place on Saturday night at the Sipopo Centre in Equatorial Guinea with countries from around the world competing for the coveted title of Miss Tourism 2013.
The contestants arrived in Equatorial Guinea on the 28th September 2013 and spent nearly 2 weeks visiting the tourism attractions of Equatorial Guinea culminating in an invitation to meet with the President of Equatorial Guinea prior to the Final Night Show who gave his best wishes to all the contestants.
On the 12th October 2013 everyone waited with a baited breath for the show to begin, and boy what a spectacular show!!! When all the stunning contestants took to the stage it was down to the judges to decide who stood out and despite a difficult decision they were unanimous in crowning Beronika Martinez from Venezuela the new Miss Tourism 2013.
The 19 year old from Venezuela won her National Final in July 2013 and began her preparations to travel to Equatorial Guinea to join the other contestants and compete for the title of Miss Tourism 2013. Her beauty and warm personality shone through for the judges and Miss Tourism 2012 Tatiana Maksimova handed over the crown to a stunned Beronika who will now take over the reign of Miss Tourism.
