So, $18 seems low to land, park and take off?

Serinidad does not charge fees, but you have to land in San Felipe to clear customs and pay all their fees.

That is the point. You are given no choice but to land at a port of entry (San Felipe) to check in/ check out. Those new fees will add up and are definitely going to deter private flight.

Looks like Guaymas is not run by that private corporation. It is unaffected and you CAN clear in at Guaymas. This is a mainland airport. No commercial flights into Guaymas, at this time. Hasnt been for about a year.

Where does one go from Guaymas? Loreto? 100 miles over water in a single engine airplane?
Can't really go to Guaymas if you're doing Baja by single engine airplane.
As was noted many if not most places with aviation fuel have the big fees in Baja. Small aircraft flying in Baja is way down and this will make it even more so.
As far as the bigger private airplanes go- where do the passengers go that arrive by that means? Just disappear? No they go to hotels, they go golfing, they eat, they rent BIG boats to go fishing in. Things that support the economy of Baja. No different than those who arrive by airliners that are even bigger. They need airports also and the passengers go do what tourists do all over the world- they support the economy so people have jobs.
Even Mexican airports make money to of set government expenses by the sale of fuel, flight plan fees, Customs fees, etc. To say that the wealthy passengers get a free ride in somewhat short sighted.
BTW, the airport in Cabo itself has high fees also and it's privately run.
