San José continues to develop the tourism industry and attract travelers from across the globe. Earlier in the year, the city celebrated the opening of its new convention center. In addition, new air routes from international destinations have made the city more accessible. Costa Rica is considered a good pick for travelers seeking nature, with national parks and conservation areas that cover more than 25 percent of the country.

As of late August, Latin America's development pipeline included 10 AC Hotel by Marriott projects with 1,701 guestrooms.
