HELLO Trip Advisor Members :)
Just something I noticed when we last visited and thought Id ask others opinions.
All my life Ive tipped by a percentage of the bill-normally 20-25%.
It seems like that is the case for most people.
But if we do that are we 'really' tipping based on service?
Itd seem that one young man based on tipping by percent would make twice as much money for doing the same work.
I guess Ive never looked at it that way but was something I noticed because of the price differences in Puerto Vallarta.
Easier example 5 beers at Cafe Roma would be about 75 pesos those same 5 beers could be 200 pesos in a different place.
Based on a 20 percent tip the first waiter earns a little more than a dollar tip and the second waiter earns over 3 dollars for the exact same work.
Thats just my observation but I was wondering if anyone else thought about it.
In Puerto Vallarta and I guess the rest of the world is it fair to tip based on percent?
And if we do tip on percent are we really tipping on service or are we tipping because of cost?
Does a waiter who has to remember the ingredient is imported goat cheese deserve a greater tip then the waiter that has to remember the ingredient is local manchego?
My first Trip Advisor comment! YEAH!
