Even if tipping in Mexico is generally not required, it is expected in many situations, specially in the touristic areas. So, our suggestion is that if you receive good service, it is a good idea to show your appreciation by giving a tip and it may help you also to ensure special treatment and attentions throughout your stay at a hotel, or dining in a restaurant to which you could return.
Tipping in either dollars and Euro (bills only, no coins) or pesos is acceptable, though pesos are usually more practical for the recipient. The amount you tip is at your discretion and should be based on the quality of service you received. A 10 – 15% tip is a good benchmark over the total of the bill.
