Tipping

Restaurant bills normally include a 10% tip.  It is customary to give an additional ten percent for good service. Most people do not tip taxis. U.S. one dollar bills and also euros are popular for tipping.

Tipping in Resorts

Tipping in resorts and at exclusive hotels differs a bit from the rest of the DR. Maids expect to have a tip when they come to clean the room, waiters at the restaurant wait for a tip as well. In many restaurants you will often find musicians playing between the tables and collect tips.
