As far as I know Guatemala does not have a departure fee. You will have to pay about 10 quetzales (sp?) to get in though.

I just went back and had a look at my records from January. We did not pay a departure fee when leaving Guatemala. The 10 quetzales (again sp.?) entry fee was roughly equivalent (Is that right? What is with my spelling today?) to about 1.40USD and can vary depending on the mood of the customs agent.

Sassy2, if you paid 33USD the agent must have been having a _very_ bad day frown

Ah, there's the crucial piece of information. It was likely some kind of 'airport' tax.

We entered and departed by land thus the difference in experience.

We went across the border about 13 miles from San Ignacio and it was 10 Q's to get across, and we had a departure fee from Belize! I don't remember how much that was but there was no fee at either border to re-enter Belize.

That would be at Benque Viejo del Carmen. Belize land departure fee is exactly half of the air departure fee. When we crossed that border it was 17USD and change. I think it has gone up since January so be prepared with a few extra dollars.

If I remember correctly, when we crossed into Guatemala at Benque back in November we paid roughly $35 US ($17.50 each person). I think that's right. On the way back into Belize my passport was stamped and I was good to go but they tried to charge my husband a fee to leave Guatemala. After asking why he had to pay and I didn't when we had come into Guatemala at the exact same time, they let him through without paying the fee.
