Just got charged $ 476.00 to enter Mexico
After 30 years going with vehicles and moto's to Mexico, I was charged this incredible amount in Chetumal. I know about the new increased changes in June 2011, but all money exchanges goes in their favor
1 $ 400 deposit
2 $ 48.40 permit
3 $ 22.00 immigration, which I was forced to pay eventhou I told immigration, I was only going to stay less as a week, what would make me exempt, but the Bancorcito said my tourist card said 180 days and immigration gave me the booth, when I asked him to change it. In the past you had the option to pay this fee later in your trip, if you exceeded 7 days.
Anyway the math, still does not make it $ 476.00 and if they give you the deposit back ( I hope), they use the rate of the day, and I am probably sure, I will loose again between buying and selling rate
I think it becomes a ripp-off and expensive for most of us and Mexico will loose on the end
Still having a blast in Mexico
