What is the current airport departure tax for Liberia

I have read some of the older posts and saw the $26 departure tax, I am curious if this amount is still the same or if not what is the current amount. Thanks for any information

Correct $26 - payable in dollars, colones or credit card. You need your passport to pay it. One person can pay for the whole family as well, presenting all the passports. If the bank is still open when you arrive, there will probably not be anyone in line anymore so pay your taxes before you leave the airport saving you time and line-up when you depart. Just keep the slip they give you. If the bank is closed upon your arrival, then you can pay the taxes at any Bank of Costa Rica during your visit.

Definitely $26 and easy to pay as you are leaving. I have never waited more than 5 minutes. It's very fast.

Also please note that if you pay with a credit card your bank will treat this as a cash advance with the resulting fees.

If you pay by credit card...it will be...$ 50.00 per person...that is bad...good for the credit card and the bank...not for Costa Rica!

roadadvisor -- $50.00 per person? You have had too much coffee today, mi amigo!

If someone wants to pay by credit card, they should check to see what their credit card charges for a cash advance. It might be small -- it might be big -- it might be nothing.
