airport departure tax..?

Hi, last year we paid the fee ($51 last summer) in USD on departure. This year the Peso rate is far better for UK visitors than the dollar - anyone know how much the exit tax is in Pesos please??

Thanks

PS - fellow Brits - the Mex Peso is 18.78 to the pound at M&S at the moment...cant ever remember it being this high.

It's around 660 pesos although it fluctuates. I have never been sure whether it's fixed in pesos or dollars but I suspect it's a bit of both (as the tax is actually several taxes in one). By the way, last October you could get over 22 pesos to the pound so 18.78 is not that good.

thanks for the advice, will take pesos as far better than the dollar. Im comparing the rate of 18+ to when I first started looking back in Feb and it was about 13/14 to the £.....and a few years ago when it was the same. either way, still better than the USD.

To anybody travelling with First Choice:

Last year we didn't pay departure tax because it was included in the price of our holiday. Is it the same this year???

I find this weird, for us Canadian the departure tax is included in the price of our ticket so we don't need to worry about that when we leave.
