Mexico’s tipping culture is impromptu and often spontaneous. Tipping is always optional although the people serving you will appreciate a small token of your appreciation for good service. Expect to leave many small tips, like so:
Restaurants: 10-15% unless gratuity is included
Hotel porters: The equivalent of $1 per bag
Taxis: $0.50 – $1
