Costa Rican hotels expect 62 percent ocupancy for mid-year vacations

June 25, 2013

A survey conducted by the Costa Rican Chamber of Hotels (CCH) of its members showed that 62 percent of hotel rooms will be occupied during the mid-year vacations starting next week.

CCH projections released Tuesday would represent a decrease of 4 percent compared to the same period last year, when local hotels reached an occupancy rate of 66 percent.

Beaches are still the favorite destination for Costa Rican tourists during this period, as hotels in coastal areas expect 67 percent of their rooms to be occupied, while mountain hotels foresee a less optimistic 43 percent occupancy.

The CCH said the preliminary figures were obtained in a survey among only a sampling of its 232 members.
