The start of the season and the new year will bring to Costa Rica a significant boom in demand for hosting services, according to a survey by the National Chamber of Tourism (Canatur), in which entrepreneurs predict occupancy rates around 80%.

The survey includes responses from 141 executives of the Central American country hotels, totaling 5,550 rooms.

The highest occupancy forecasts were for the Central Pacific region (89.1%), Guanacaste (84.1%), Puntarenas (75.9%) and the Caribbean (74.8%), followed by Northern Plains ( 72.9%), South Pacific (69.5%) and Central Valley (67.3%).

From these data, the average occupancy expected amounts to 75.92%, said the Canatur.

“The study represents a snapshot of behavior designed by the hotel industry for the start of the season and the end of the year. The spike in demand for tourism services due to two specific factors: the increase in the flow of non-resident visitation and time of rest, a large percentage of profit for vacationing Costa Ricans, “said Juan Carlos Ramos, president of the Canatur.

According to the agency, the optimistic forecasts of the Central Pacific and Guanacaste regions may be due to the facilities extended by the improvement of the terminal of the International Airport Daniel Oduber, the path of non-resident tourists fastest growing in recent years .

He also mentions the opening of Route 27, which has allowed foreign tourists and Costa Ricans to move faster towards that area of ​​the country.

Regarding prospects for the category, beach facilities, as well as three-star hotels range from 100 to 200 rooms, recorded the highest percentages of expectation in demand for the start of the season and the end of year.

The beach hotels reported 82.61% and 82.6% three stars, while businesses with a range of 100 to 200 rooms reported a 92.7% projected occupancy.

According to data from the Canatur, the last half of 2011 saw a 70.6% hotel occupancy, while the occupation of the entire season December 2011 to March 2012 was 70.5%.
