"Dining Out" Top 5 Page for this destination Tipping Tip by richmalak

Tipping, Puerto Vallarta: 8 reviews and 2 photos

Tipping (1) is same as in US?15% is expected?20% is a very nice tip?service standards (2)?this is very important otherwise you can think you are getting poor service and get ticked off?they will rarely if ever disturb you as they feel that it is rude and intrusive?they will stand where they can see you and if you need them you simply look at them or raise your hand or call out ?senor??for example they will not interrupt your eating to ask how everything is so if there is a problem you must summon them?they will virtually never present the check (3) until you ask for it?again this would be rude as it would be like saying ok now get the heck out of here?simply say ?senor la cuenta por favor? when you are ready to leave?consequently you should be ready to pay before asking because they will stand very near by waiting so that they can take the check and payment right away?the check never just sits on the table
