Hi!,

I heard it went up. Also, can we pay by credit card or is it cash only?

Thanks!

Contential includes the tax in the ticket, but not the increase during my Nov visit. To clear customs I had to come up with another $1.30 US! I gave them a $20 US and they gave me change in US$!

Always wondered what the rationale behind a departure tax was, beyond "because we can."

"You wanna leave or not?"

"Because we cleaned the joint up since we knew you were coming"

"You left a mess"

Renee, does the amount enter into your decision to come and or leave or you just are curious? Want to have the cash on you, right?


I hope that someday we can put aside our fears and prejudices and just laugh at people.

Oh, no we are coming, this is our 7th trip. Just wanted to make sure to leave out enough money, Skippy.

Thanks for the amount JZB. Wonder why they always have odd amounts?
