In studies on tourism and hospitality, the sustainable aspect has been continuously treated. A current approach that expands the concept of sustainability is the circular economy, considered a closed economic model that aims to maintain the most significant utility and value of products, components, and materials at all times. This issue has been addressed not only in the productive sphere but also in the area of services. In this sense, the objective of this research was to understand how the circular economy is being treated in the tourism and hospitality sectors. A review of published articles accessed across four databases—Spell, CAPES Portal, SciELO, and Web of Science—was carried out. The main results indicate that studies in this area are still incipient, with a greater number of publications starting in 2019; European studies prevail; the publications are still theoretical, with little empirical research; and address the benefits of the circular economy, and the economic, social, and environmental aspects.
