Is it advisable to carry traveller checks?
Yes because they are a practical, safe and easy way of cashing in money, for they can be exchanged at banks with no inconvenience. Besides, they are accepted at hotels, travel agencies and also some commercial establishments in Cancun.
It is recommendable to have them issued by well-known and prestigious financial institutions and rather for large amounts.
How much should I tip?
It is not an obligation though it is usual to leave between 10 and 15 percent of the total bill, without taking into consideration the Tax to the Aggregated Value (IVA) at restaurants, bars, discotheques and nightclubs.
Regarding luggage haulers, bellboys and parking valets, it is usual to tip them with two dollars in Cancun.
