STR analysts note that besides Uruguay, all countries in South America recorded growth in demand (roomnights sold), with Argentina and Brazil being the strongest performers.

Despite occupancy growth in Costa Rica, STR analysts note that ADR declined for all but three days in November. The country hosted the Sustainable Hotel & Tourism Investment Conference (13-14 November) in San Jose, which helped raise absolute occupancy above 80.0% during those days.

Brazil continued to show signs of recovery, with occupancy (+7.4% to 59.1%) reaching its highest level for any month since November 2015.
