Hello to all,

We will be visiting Ambergris Caye next March (first time). We were wondering what the tipping policy was for the various services, like taxis, water taxis, restaurants, maid service, excursion operators and their various employees.

The only other place we have visited outside the U.S. is Grand Bahama, where they automatically add a 15% gratuity to restaurant bills.

In the U.S. we usually give 15% for good service, more for exceptional service.

Any insight as to what is "the norm" for the various services would be greatly appreciated!!
