Mexico Exempts 3 Baja Sites From Tourist Fee

May 23, 1999|ASSOCIATED PRESS

Visitors who stay in the Baja California cities of Rosarito Beach, Ensenada and San Felipe for less than 72 hours won't have to pay a $15 tourist-entry fee that is scheduled to go into effect throughout Mexico on July 1, officials said last week. The announcement of the fee in February generated protests from the Baja tourism industry. Revenue from the fee, which is applied to overnight visitors and does not affect day trips, will be used to subsidize tourism promotion.
