Default Port charges and taxes?

Does anyone know how much the Port charges and Taxes are? I will be going on a 5-day cruise on the Holiday visiting two ports Costa Maya and Cozumel? I was just curious if all charges are the same for different cruises.
This site is a wonderful abundence of information. Thank you for all who post and inform us new to cruising.

Your Port Charges vary the number of Ports you go to [and which ones]. The tax varies with the amount you spent for your cruise. As a rough guess, those amounts will be something between $100-150/person.

I sometimes wonder why they differ from one agency to another for the same cruise.

Port charges and taxes are not based on the amount you spend on your cruise they are the same no matter what you spend. They should always be the same no matter who you book through so if one person is telling you more than another they're not being truthful they may be tacking on some agency 'fees'.
