Mexico Tourism Tax Refund for Certain People

If you are Mexican, a resident, or just passing through Mexico instead of staying, you don’t have to pay the Mexico Tourism fee when you fly. As of now, that is $28.63 one way…which is almost a week of groceries for me! I asked for a refund from Southwest on Twitter on 3/2 with just my resident visa instead of my physical resident card. Had no idea if they would give me my money back or not but my fingers were crossed and I was patient. I looked in my bank account this morning and the money was back in my account as of yesterday 3/25. So it took them three weeks to get it back to me. I’m not complaining! They did short me 60 cents though, I received $28.03 back.

From what I’ve researched there is no way NOT to pay the Mexico Tourism Fee before flying. You have to request a refund after flying which sucks.

But from now on when I fly I have to remember to request my refund from Southwest through Twitter.

And sorry I pretty much fly Southwest only due to the free bags I get and their points structure. I can’t speak for any other airlines and their processes.

When I say I love this place I really DO! My iPhone cord was acting up and I didn’t feel like going out today. I remembered someone here telling me about Rappi. Rappi you can get whatever you want delivered. I said YESSS! I went online and had to figure out what to do but finally figured it out. They have a restaurant, store, and then “whatever you want delivered” section you can choose from.

I put in my first order with them and got 80 pesos off my order which is a great deal. My order was dispatched and I was able to communicate with my driver straight from the web site. I told him I needed an iphone charger with the cord. My order was delivered in less than 20 minutes.

Total cost was 100 pesos including a 10 peso tip. So about $5.60.

I give Rappi two thumbs up.
