Culture, shopping, great food and breath-taking landscapes lure many tourists to Mexico, but come June, there one more reason. It’s the money, honey.
Tourists departing Mexico City, Cancún, Guadalajara, Los Cabos and Puerto Vallarta by air and who spend between $115 USD and $1,000 USD on a credit or debit card issued outside of Mexico at authorized stores can get up to half of the sales tax back. In the second phase of the program, slated to begin six months later, tourists departing the international airports at Morelia, Monterrey, Cozumel, Leon, and Mazatlán will be able to enjoy the same privilege. The rest of the country’s international airports and the maritime terminals of Acapulco, La Paz, Puerto Vallarta, Huatulco, and Mazatlán will join the pack in the third phase of the program. Food and beverage expenses aren’t part of the deal.
