LONDON—Hotels in the Central/South America region reported growth across the three key performance metrics, according to January 2018 data from STR.

U.S. dollar constant currency, January 2018 vs. January 2017

Central/South America

  •  Occupancy: +7.7% to 56.2%
  •  Average daily rate (ADR): +5.6% to US$106.24
  •  Revenue per available room (RevPAR): +13.7% to US$59.74

Local currency, January 2018 vs. January 2017


  • Occupancy: +7.4% to 58.2%
  • ADR: +24.7% to ARS2,259.51
  • RevPAR: +34.0% to ARS1,314.49

The absolute occupancy level was the highest for any January in Argentina since 2008. The month also was the fourth in a row with ADR growth above 20%. Significant year-over-year increases in room rates have remained consistent for several years due to inflation. Also helping performance is a lack of significant supply growth in the country.

Costa Rica

  • Occupancy: +5.9% to 77.3%
  • ADR: +18.4% to CRC101,098.66
  • RevPAR: +25.4% to CRC78,179.83

Occupancy reached its highest level for any January in STR’s Costa Rica database. STR analysts attribute the performance to a stable supply level and a positive economic outlook in the country.


  • Occupancy: +15.1% to 52.9%
  • ADR: -2.8% to PEN395.39
  • RevPAR: +11.9% to PEN209.03

The occupancy level was the highest for a January in Peru since 2013, while ADR dropped to its lowest point since 2014. While the occupancy figure was higher than the January average in the country, the year-over-year growth rate was boosted by a comparison with a low occupancy month in 2017.
