We're leaving for Quito on Friday and I have some kinda dumb last minute questions.
1) I know $20s are the highest denomination generally accepted but can we bring a couple of $50s for Galapagos cruise tips or should everything be $20s or less. Just worried about carrying a wad of cash.
2) Do we pay any airport departure tax flying to Galapagos from Quito and back?
3) What is the current international departure tax? And is it the same for both adults and children? We are headed to Peru after our cruise.
4) Lastly, we have arranged a tour through Happy Gringo to Mitad del Mundo and the Equator Monument, etc. It's a 1/2 day. Normally would have done on our own but we're getting in so late the night before it was easiest this way. Question: do we tip the driver/guide and if so, can anyone give us a rough idea of how much?
Thanks! All advice is much appreciated.Edited: 29 June 2010, 15:05
