Airlines to collect Cabo tourist tax

Date Published:

New tourist tax to be collected via airlines from December. Cruise passengers will be exempt...

The announcement came just days after a December extension was given to finalise all the details.

Baja California Sur is the first state in Mexico to introduce a tourist tax. But Governor Carlos Mendoza believes states with a similar tourist profile may follow suit. 

Around 95% of the monies collected will be earmarked for infrastructure projects. And if this promise is kept, a huge amount of good work could be done. (Los Cabos alone could bring in almost $40 million US dollars at current exchange rates).

The tax has been controversial from the beginning and a lot of people are against it. Some service providers believe that tourists already contribute enough to the economy. And fear that the imposition of this tax will discourage visitors. 

Cruise passengers will be exempt - as they are in Cabo less than 24 hours. And it's not clear if the tax will be levied on national, as well as international tourists. 

Whatever your view, it’s starting in December. And at 350 pesos, approximately 20 dollars, it's hardly going to affect your vacation. Especially if it is put to a good use.
