the departure tax has already been added to your airline ticket, there is nothing to be paid at the airport anymore.

Is this for all departing passengers as our tour operator is telling us that it will be $54 EC ?

The departure tax for St Lucia was incorporated into the airline ticket with effect from January 2008. If your airline or travel agent is saying you have to pay tax, their information is out of date.

Many other Caribbean islands do however still charge the tax.

that is one out of date tour operator...better double check anything they tell you!! I am not even sure that there is that window to pay it anymore. Certainly streamlines the check in process.

We were told the same thing...I think by our resort...to have cash ready when you get to the airport. But everyone is correct, the departure tax is already in your return ticket, so no need to worry about it.

Oddly enough, we were also told the same thing in Jamaica, so we kept some cash out for the airport, but then nothing was ever said of it again. Maybe some islanders aren't aware that it's included in the airline ticket?

No worries, you can spend that last little bit of cash in the airport gift shops, LOL :) That's what I did!
