In recent months, Quintana Roo’s congress approved the Ley de Hacienda (Finance Law) in the municipality of Benito Juárez, where our beautiful Cancun is located. This law approved a fee that each visitor must pay when they check into in a hotel. This law is called the Derecho de Saneamiento Ambiental (Environmental Sanitation Law), and its purpose is to raise funds for environmental conservation programs.


According to this law, all tourists who stay in a hotel or resort in Cancun will pay the fee. 90 million pesos will be collected in the first year, and up to 200 million pesos in subsequent years. This amount will be used for the care and cleaning of beaches, environmental education and even public safety, in other words, everything that can strengthen the presence of Cancun on the international stage.


The fee, which must be paid starting January 2, 2019 in hotels that are located in the Benito Juarez municipality (Sunset Royal, Laguna Suites Golf & Spa, Sunset Marina and Ocean Spa) is 24.8 Mexican pesos per room per night, and will be collected in the resort at check-in. This is a way to help maintain the beauty of our destination and ensure that it remains an ideal place to take a vacation.
