Please be advised as you travel to the Riviera Maya area there is a new tax. Not all hotels are implementing the same way, but they may be asked to pay a small amount upon check out. The official statement is below. The exchange rate was 17 pesos : $1, so the tax is about $1.15 per day per room.
“The Municipalidad of Solidaridad in the Riviera Maya is one of the most beautiful places in the Mexican Caribbean. Tourism has been instrumental in driving the economic and social development of the region.
In an effort to continue to preserve, conserve and beautify the destination, the Municipality of Solidaridad has implemented a small environmental levy on visitors effective September 1, 2017.
Hotels will collect 20 Mexican pesos per room per day on check out; the proceeds will be deposited in an environmental trust to fund local projects.The Municipalidad of Solidaridad thanks you for your understanding and support of this worthwhile endeavor.
