The Congress of Quintana Roo suggested a new cruise ship tourist levy of $5 USD per person during the state’s recent 2024 Fiscal Package conference.


The additional tax would be collected at the time of cruise ship trip purchase and forwarded to the state by cruise ship firms.


According to Article 51 of the Law of Rights of the State of Quintana Roo, 30 percent of the money that enters the state coffers goes to the Trust for Natural Disasters.


Quintana Roo is one of Mexico’s states with the highest risk of hurricane impact during the Atlantic season which runs from June to November each year.


The other 70 percent would be allocated to a new Trust for Tourism Infrastructure.


The $5 fee would be collected by cruise ship companies at the time of booking.


If approved, the new Right to Cruise Passengers would come into force as of the first day of January 2025.
