  • ADR: -35.6% to US$62.78
  • RevPAR: -91.9% to US$5.28

The occupancy and RevPAR levels were the lowest for any month on record in STR’s Ecuador database, as hotels remained closed during the month due to COVID-19.

Leisure and regional markets, however, recorded double-digit occupancy levels. The Brazil Southeast submarket saw occupancy of 17.6%, while São Paulo State Regional posted 12.9% occupancy.
