Roads closed, reservations canceled, passenger diverted to other regions, disruption of water, electricity and telephone services and damage to infrastructure.
Tourism was one of the most affected by the passage of Tropical Storm Tomas, leaving 6 out of 10 companies with some damage, according to a survey done by the National Chamber of Tourism (CANATUR) to 80 companies and tour operators in all tourist regions.
Tourists are renting more and more houses for leisure purposes, competing strongly with the traditional hotel industry.
Vacation rental is defined as the renting of villas, houses, apartments or country estates for a few days or weeks, and is growing fast around the world. Central America is no exception to this phenomenon, which suits especially families or small groups.
