Baja California Sur introduces tourist tax

Cabo San Lucas

Baja California Sur, a paradise for sports lovers and the wildlife in Mexico, introduces a 350-peso (US$18.50) tourist tax effective November 9, 2019.

Foreigners who will fly to Baja California Sur will be able to pay the tax at kiosks in airports while the state’s port authority will be responsible for collecting the tax from travelers who arrive by sea. Hotels and other accommodation providers will charge foreign visitors who enter via land.

The tax will apply to all foreign tourists who stay in the state for more than 24 hours.

According to the news published at Mexico News Daily, visitors will also be able to pay the tax on a website and mobile app. The Baja California Sur government expects to raise at least 490 million pesos (US$25.6 million) annually from the tax, which was approved by the state Congress in 2016 but not enacted by Mendoza until now.
