According to some residents and tourism professionals, the measure has generated great dissatisfaction among the population and tourists who come to rate as something negative for the region's economy. Unlike Fernando de Noronha, who also charges fees of permanence in the national park, Mateiros still does not have an adequate infrastructure to receive tourists. The charge, in addition to being disproportionate to the structure offered by the city hall, has worried the professionals of the municipality who fear a drop in the number of visitors next year.

According to the Municipal Secretary of Tourism, Heberson Martins, the rate will value the local labor and make the monetary resource remain in the city. the money of rate will be used to pay for the mandatory visa insurance for the visitor and for the preservation and maintenance of the environment.
