As a non-Colombian, am I required to pay the 16% tax at hotels? Per Lonley Planet, I am not supposed to pay (?) as it is only a tax for Colombians.
I booked a hotel in Medellin online though Priceline and the reservation clearly states that my card will not be charged until I arrive. However, per my credit card company, I already have the entire hotel bill PLUS the 16% tax charged to my card (this is still more than 20 days before I arrive).
Any suggestions welcomed. I am going to call Priceline ASAP.
