The state government said last week that it will begin charging the tax on Nov. 9. The state is home to the popular resort cities of Cabo San Lucas, San Jose del Cabo and La Paz.
The tax will apply to foreign tourists and can be paid at airport kiosks. State officials said the tax is for the "use for Infrastructure" and will be used for social service works.
Like many resorts, the ones in Mexico are often surrounded by poor communities.
