“As of January 1, 2019, Isla Mujeres will become the first Quintana Roo insula to collect the foreign tourists’ income”, informed the Secretary General of Government, Francisco Xavier López Mena, who made it clear that the residents of state of Quintana Roo would be excluded of this payment
In this regard, he said that recently the Congress of Quintana Roo authorized the request of the Municipality of Isla Mujeres to approve the collection of a fee from all of those travelers who arrive to the island, “it is similar to a lodging fee, but in this case it is charged to those who arrive at the docks of Isla Mujeres”.
“This fee will begin to be charged on the first day of next year, as it has just been approved, but the exact amount is still to be determined. However, he said that it would be different from the Lodging Tax (IH), which is twenty pesos per night for travelers who spend the night in the island, and between seven and 10 pesos for tourists who come to the island just to spend the day.
The state secretary of Government estimated that this practice will probably be replicated by the islands of Holbox and Cozumel during the first quarter of next year, after it was approved by the state Congress. But it must be made very clear that it will be for the tourists , not for the the state residents, who will be exempt from this payment.
