Can anyone tell me what the current departure tax is? I've found different prices, from $15 to $35. Also, what is the sales tax right now?

Actually, they are now required to accept BZE dollars as well.

No euros? No lempira? No colones or cajones? No francs (or bills or eds)?

Been there, done that, the washing machine ate the T-shirt

Jesse, it appears you may not understand the economics of the court process. A lawsuit in this instance is hardly a practical idea. You should get out more.

I did have a very nice chat about the requirement changes with the departure employees last September. Those I spoke with agreed it made sense and had made their job much easier from a customer relation stadpoint. I haven't heard of anyone having any difficulties since the rule change; of course, that doesn't mean there haven't been any.

I'd call it effective synergy.

If you must choose between two evils, pick the one you've never tried before.
