Carnival, as it is announced vthat Madeirans will pay tourist tax in Porto Santo

Madeirans will pay tourist tax in Porto Santo is the subject that makes the Diario’s headline today. The Chamber has already approved the regulation that provides for the charging of €2 tourist tax per night spent in Porto Santo and the respective exemption regime. Entities that do not comply risk fines of up to €10,000

The newspaper also notes that fuel prices have tended to increase since the beginning of the year.
From next Monday, February 12th, these are the fuel prices in force in Madeira:
Super unleaded gasoline IO 95: €1,587 (€1,579 per litre this week).
Road Diesel: €1,386 (€1,368 per litre this week).

The photographic highlight of this first page concerns the float procession. Contagious joy: More than 1,600 revellers from 13 troupes brought magic, colour, creativity and energy to the Avenue. The public at the sambadrome enjoyed the parade in a tropical climate.

Hotel occupancy announced as “87%”

Tourism Secretary Eduardo Jesus, highlighted the maintenance of good hotel occupancy – “87%” – after the “€515,000” of investment by the Regional Government. I worry about these figures sometimes.

The Tourism secretary also confirmed that the resigning president, Miguel Albuquerque, was not present in the allegorical procession that filled the Funchal waterfront yesterday evening. Instead of this, he revealed that his wife and children would appear in the tribune of official entities. Also present were Regionals secretaries Pedro Ramos and Ana Sousa, as well as the president of the Funchal City Council, Cristina Pedra.

A new, vastly improved “search” facility has been introduced allowing readers to search (box in the sidebar above) on any word or phrase used in any of the posts over the last sixteen years. Previously the search facility only returned matches on headings rather than the entire content. It remains to be seen whether this will slow the blog down – fingers crossed! If it works it should move the blog even further ahead of the increasing number of imitators, providing a huge resource for visitors and residents.

  1. How will they collect this “Tourist tax”? If someone from Funchal pops over to visit a family member and stays in their house who will know? Who would collect it?

    I can accept holidaymakers paying the tax via their accommodation but, it is a bit rich expecting natives to pay a tax for visiting a different part of their archipelago.

  2. Well this is becoming like a group of grumpy of people beside of fighting passing all the time complaining and many times complete out of subject and neither making any type of debate and comments about the supposed articles . In relation to this Porto Santo tourist tax if the Madeira people pay then should be less but I don’t agree with such payment . And I relay understand the Porto Santo Council position in relation to tax the tourists what is happening is many of them stay in hotels with everything inclusive and may times don’t go out of the hotel facilities to spend anything outside and affects the local trade deeply.
