Rio de Janeiro

• Occupancy: +19.6% to 52.3%
• ADR: +5.7% to BRL341.80
• RevPAR: +26.3% to BRL178.80

Hotel performance in Rio de Janeiro was driven by a 13.9% increase in demand (room nights sold). ADR and RevPAR grew for the fourth consecutive month. STR analysts note that year-over-year percentage changes were also helped by a comparison with a month in 2017 that included double-digit performance declines.

Panama City

• Occupancy: -10.0% to 46.1%
• ADR: +2.6% to PAB88.68
• RevPAR: -7.6% to PAB40.89

The absolute occupancy and RevPAR levels were the lowest for any August on record in Panama City. A continued drop in demand paired with consistent growth in supply has led to negative performance results.
