The signing of nine new properties in Central America confirms the expansion strategy of Hilton group in the continent. Some 1300 rooms are expected, distributed among five countries.
Regrouped in five countries (Costa Rica, Panama, Guatemala, Belize and Honduras), these new resorts together will have approximately 1,300 rooms. Costa Rica has the bigger share, with no fewer than five new projects in development.
The symbol of this major development, Hilton Guatemala City should host 130 rooms in the Mesoamerican capital, in a picturesque setting. According to Juan Corvinos, director of the brand's development in Mexico, Central America, Andine region and Hispanic Caribbean, it is "the growth of demand in Central America" which justifies this major investment.
