Tipping

Jump to last reply

Hi All;

Searching the net, I find all kinds of info on tipping so I need to ask more specifically.

We are going to an all-inclusive 4 star in Dominican.

What is a recommended (for good service) tip for:

- staff (says tips are included) (bartenders etc)
- at the ala-carte restaurant
- housekeeping
- excursions (jeep safari day trip)
- baggage handlers (airport)
- Bellboy
- * Locals when we are on day trip
- other?

I've seen people hand out items vs. $ such as gum, tooth paste, candy, tooth brush, other - is this actually meaningful? To whom specifically? (such as locals) We want to do well here but not insult anyone either.

Thank you!!
