Environmental Levy The Municipalidad of Solidaridad in the Rivera Maya is one of the most beautiful places in the Mexican Caribbean. Tourism has been instrumental in driving the economic and social development of the region. In an effort to continue to preserve, conserve and beautify the destination, the Municipality of Solidaridad has implemented a small environmental levy on visitors. Effective for travel 10/11/17 to 12/31/17, the hotels will collect $10 Mexican pesos per room per day. From 01/01/18 onwards, hotels will collect $20 Mexican pesos per room per day. The proceeds will be deposited in an environmental trust to fund local projects.
