The most recent forum post I've seen (last week) reported 1150 pesos per person, or US$65 or £50.

A couple of days ago, the TUI website stated 1350 pesos, but that site has not always been reliable. If correct, it means the tax has increased.

It would be great if you report back about what you paid.

What exactly is an exit tax? A tax to go back to US?

All tourists who fly to and from Mexico must pay the Mexican Tourism Tax and the International Airport Departure Tax.

Almost all airlines collect these taxes as part of the airfare (check your itemized receipt and you'll see them listed) so nothing to pay at any airport.

However, TUI/Thomson of the UK do not collect these taxes which means passengers with TUI must pay them as a lump sum before checking in for their departure flight from Mexico. That's why some people refer to it as a departure or exit tax. It's only passengers with TUI that have to pay this at the airport.

My son has just been told he has to pay 20 pesos per day at the hotel in Mexico. We can’t find out if this is true,he’s going with TUI.

TUI just sent an email,I know about the tax you pay at the airport as we have just got back from Mexico but we didn’t have to pay anything at the hotel.

That 20 pesos per day charge was introduced last year -- it's the environmental tax -- nothing to do with the tax you pay at the airport upon departure from Mexico.
