Costa Rica fee

This item appears on page 76 of the April 2009 issue.

CORRECTION — ITN incorrectly reported (Feb. ’09, pg. 84) that Costa Rica had dropped its 3% hotel tax and was to replace it with a flat fee of $15 to be added to air tickets. The Costa Rican Consulate confirmed that that plan was not carried out and that the current exit fee of $26, to be paid at the airport upon departure, is the only fee being charged to tourists.
