Tipping in Bonaire - hotel maid and tour boat operator

1. What is the common range for a tip for a hotel maid at the end of a 7 night stay in a 2BR apt? I believe there will be daily maid service. We are planning on picking up after ourselves except for making beds.

2. Is it customary to tip a tour boat operator? if so, what amount for three people? We are planning a 3hr boat trip. It's $38 pp.

Three to five dollars a day for the maid is good, especially if she does dishes, sweeps up and takes care of linens and the bathroom.

Ten percent of the cost for the boat trip is pretty standard, more if you got great service. It is usually split between captain and crew.
