Where sales tax is applicable this is charged at 16% (current rate 2015). Check out USD exchange rates in the US before coming here to get the best value. Mahahual is a small remote town with a weaker exchange rate against the dollar. Check first if you wish to pay by credit card as not all places accept credit cards yet. Expect an extra 3% surcharge when using credit cards. Some of these hotels can be found on other websites however we recommend that going directly and mentioning you are fishing with me will guarantee you the best price and service. I am happy to deal with the reservation on your behalf after you have chosen your hotel. For all these places you will find images and TripAdvisor reviews by Googling the name.
