New Mandatory Tax for Tourists Visiting Quintana Roo, Mexico

Quintana Roo is a state in southeastern Mexico that is made up of several municipalities including Cancun, Isla Mujeres, Cozumel, and Playa del Carmen. The region is known as a vacation paradise due to its tropical climate, turquoise ocean, jungle, cenotes, and Mayan archeological sites.

If you are planning your next trip to Quintana Roo, this information is important for you. As of April 1, 2021, a new mandatory tax has been implemented for tourists that are 15 years of age and older. The goal of collecting this new tax is to generate revenue to create jobs and fund new tourist attractions.

The amount of the new tax is $224 Mexican pesos, approximately $10 – $11 USD per person. The tax will be collected at the airport before your departure from Mexico and can either be paid at the kiosks installed in the airport or through the official Visitax website.
