i am currently in Cabarete and just got back from dinner. i thought i had figured out everything there was to know about Cabarete from this forum but i was stumped at dinner tonight. i know the exchange rate is about 36:1USD here and got that rate at Janet's this morning but i went to dinner and had a bill that was somewhere around 650 pesos and then the service charge added to that brought it to 715. i left $20 USD and 100 DR pesos (~820 pesos) going off the idea that im tipping around 20% of the bill like i do in the states but when i checked the bill after i got back to the hotel it said at the bottom "you pay...23.xx USD"
if i were to go off the horrible exchange rate at the bottom of the bill, it looks like i didnt tip at all but if you go off the actual exchange rate, i tipped 20%. should i feel guilty for "not tipping" or should i feel like an informed TR member that didnt overpay yet left a good tip?
