Another Question... exit tax

Does anyone know how much this is? I assume you pay it when you leave the Cancun airport to to return to Canada. Thank you!!!

Any tax like that is included in your ticket.

Was US$42 when we left a couple of weeks ago. we had to pay but it might be different from other places like US/Canada where it may well be included in your ticket price. In departure termnal there are 2 queues, one to pay tax and the other to check in. you cannot check in until you have paid the tax. sounded a nightmare to us but it worked ok with no hold ups..

I hope my exit tax is included in my ticket. I heard people paying these fees of $50 each. That is a bummer if you are not expecting it.

I haven't paid an exit tax in Mexico in over 10 years. It is almost certain to be included in your ticket.

bookworm...I am Canadian, but traveling out of the U.S. I contacted the Mexican Tourism Board about the exit-tax question, since our next trip (less than 2 weeks...yeah!) was booked without a tour agency. Their reply was that we would be given a tourist card on the flight to Cancun (included with ticket and needed to leave the country at end of vacation) and that there is no exit tax. Hope this is helpful...
