Tipping

As this is a major vacation destination and many of the people who work in the service industry rely on tips to supplement their wages, tipping is not only common, but expected. Consider a tip of 18% to 20% for excellent restaurant service, even at casual eateries. It’s customary to tip all service folk at hotels and resorts, from bellmen to valets to housekeepers. Keeping a stash of "singles" in your wallet or handbag makes this easy.
