I have read the old post surrounding the explanation of pesos and playing the change game 😄. In respect for the ease of use by locals, we intend to take as much as possible in pesos and Mexican currency. I also know that we will take plenty of 1's & 5's (US), for time that we do not have proper peso denominations in which to use for tips.
What is considered proper for tipping? I know that is somewhat relative to service received, but as a rule, is it similar to US standards of 15 -23% on meals and everything else being relative to type of event or service?
Can someone give a good starting point of what denominations we should take for a week stay. Yeah, I know almost impossible to answer as everyone's spending habits are different.
Credit cards always provide good exchange rates and assume usage at restaurants is good... When using credit cards at restaurants the bill will come in pesos, assume that tips are also in pesos. don't want to tip what I think to be $100 pesos and have it turn out to be $100 US
