"you got to pay in Stirling"

You can pay in sterling if you want to but it's not mandatory; if you pay in pesos, it works out cheaper because they don't give you a particularly favourable exchange rate if you use sterling (or Euros).

Approx 900 pesos with both Thomson and Thomas Cook. Departure tax isn't dictated by the airlines.

I was also told no cards and this year I have been told no dollars etc, they are now accepting peso only. Not sure if that is correct though. Maybe someone who has been this year can confirm.

I haven't seen any posts that indicate pesos ONLY.

Previous posts indicate that the departure tax can be paid in pesos, sterling or Euros. Dollars have, in recent years, always been hit or miss. I don't believe debit cards have ever been an option. I do recall ONE case where a person was allowed to pay with a credit card because they had no other way of paying. I wouldn't recommend trying this though and would suggest you have sufficient pesos instead (or sterling or Euros if you don't mind being scorched on the exchange rate).

It's included in your airfare airmiles:) For those of us that fly from the UK on a 'charter' flight such as Thomson or Thomas Cook, we have to pay the tax at Cancun before we fly home.
