Excellent point Tincup. I hope that the average tourist can appreciate this information. I hope they realize that they need to tip well and with the understanding that the money that they leave in Belize helps raise the standard of living for folks that have treated us like kings and queens while we were there. Nowhere I have ever traveled have I met friendlier people than right here in AC and they share their little town with each and everyone of us so we can bring back memories of an island paradise. They deserve to be paid well for the services they render and sometimes the pay they recieve is more their tips than the hourly wage. From divers, to wait staff, to children selling their wares on the beach, they are all apart of our memories and they all deserve to be compensated for what will last us a lifetime. They have made our lives richer make sure you make theirs a little richer before you leave.
