Nicaragua: Hotel Supply Up 73%

Between 2010 and 2015 the number of tourist accommodation establishments went up by 73%, and the total number of available rooms increased by 53%.

Thursday, March 30, 2017

Data from the Central American Integration System (SICA) indicates that in 2010 Nicaragua registered 8,880 rooms and had 771 business establishments used to accommodate tourists. At the close of 2015, there were almost 14 thousand rooms and 1,057 establishments such as hotels, hostels and cabins.

See "Nicaragua: Daily Expenditure of Tourists Up 8%" reports that "...Excluding Honduras, whose data only goes up to 2014 and 2015, Nicaragua is the country whose accommodation has increased the most in the period of reference. Up until 2015 Costa Rica had the largest number of accommodations in the region, with 2,402. At the Central American level, up until 2015 there were 9,300 accommodations, more than the 7,298 in 2010. This equates to an increase of 27%, according to figures from the SICA."

"... Central America has managed to increase this availability by 41.840 rooms since 2010, making for a total of 172.854 units in 2015. This increase in the number of rooms and accommodation has allowed Nicaragua to significantly increase the availability of beds to accommodate the 1.3 million tourists who visit Nicaragua.  In those five years, the country's beds rose from 14.309 to 23,562 in 2015."
