    To be safe.. Just bring with you 2500.00 pesos to 3,000.00 pesos. You can spend some of the change in the airport for food, drinks, and maybe phone cards or at least a pocket money when you return.

    The travel tax full rate is 1620.00 pesos, flying economy plus plus a terminal fee of 750.00 pesos for a total of 2370.00 pesos. If you are flying 1st class, you will have to pay 2700.00 pesos plus the 750.00 terminal fee for a total of 3450.00 pesos.

    You can also qualify for the travel tax standard reduced rate of 1350.00 for first class and 810.00 pesos for economy class if you are one of the following below.
