The absolute ADR level was the highest for any month in Brazil since August 2016, which is another sign of performance recovery in the country. Aside from demand growth (+4.4%), the overall positive performance can be attributed to much lower supply growth (+2.1%) compared with the past several Februarys. Rio de Janeiro helped the country’s overall performance, reaching double-digit growth in occupancy (+13.8%) and RevPAR (+14.7%).
- Occupancy: +0.3% to 61.4%

ADR reached its highest level for any month in Ecuador since October 2016 and the highest for a February since 2016. The WIDA International School Consortium (22-25 February) helped boost performance in Quito, as did the football match between Quito and Guayaquil City, which raised occupancy 104.4% on 27 February. For the month overall, Quito occupancy grew 8.3% to 62.4%, which was the highest absolute occupancy level for a February in the market since 2015.
- Occupancy: +0.8% to 56.9%
- ADR: +1.3% to PAB97.58
