Belize & Ambergris Caye Help

I remember when leaving Belize at the airport we paid an exit tax due prior to boarding our plane. How much is the exit tax per person?

Departure taxes and fees total US$56. To my knowledge, American is the only airline that doesn’t include it in ticket price.
 
You can pay with Visa or MasterCard in addition to U.S. cash.
 
American is the only one who collects it at BZE. All other airlines include it in their price.
 
If you look at the very bottom of your e-tickets, it will show you in fine print the amount of taxes. When you use United, USAir, or TACA, it will list six or seven tax amounts that add up to $56. American tickets do not have that listed.

I just returned from Belize on United and had to pay $38 USD indeparture taxes. This was a one-way ticket. At the United ticket counter in Belize I was told that A PORTION of the exit departure tax had been included in the ticket price but not all of it. Several different Southwest agents have confirmed via phone call that ALL Belize departure taxes are included in the price of the ticket, (whether it's a one-way or round-trip ticket). In Belize I was told by someone at the airport (not from United or any US carrier, but from one of the Belizean carriers) that if the ticket is a one-way, it won't include the taxes but if it's a round-trip, the taxes will be included. I don't know if this is universally true.
