In some places is up to you if you want to give a tip. Whether you liked the service or if they were kind to you. In these cases, you give it because you want to be grateful not because you must do it.

There are other cases when the tips are included in the bill and you don’t need to give more money. Usually, tips go from 10% up to 15% of the total cost.

And last but not least, in some restaurants, tips are not included in the bill, but you must leave around 10%. Why? Well, in Cancun it is well known that the salary of the waitress is low, so, the tips represent an important extra income.
