Taxes too high

Dear Editor,

We were in Portugal for vacation from April 23 to May 7. A beautiful country and very warm and friendly people.

We travelled with a rental car to most of your country. My wife and I had never been to Portugal and would like to return,  but the taxes were a bit high and roadway tolls were very high!

I do not think that adding a hotel tax is wise. There are limits to what a visitor will pay. Historic ruins, the castles, Roman ruins, etc. could be funded by cutting the wasteful spending on so many social programmes in Portugal!
