What is the departure tax when leaving the country?

There is a $26 per person departure tax when leaving Costa Rica. This is common but in some other countries it is added into your airfare. In Costa Rice you pay the departure tax directly at the airport before you leave. This can be paid in cash (colones or dollars) or credit card. It's a great way to use up any colones you have left from your trip.
