Tipping in Bolivia is pretty common, whether you are sticking to the mountains or the roads. In fact, Bolivia is a mountain bikers paradise. It is home of The Death Road, where you can go on a 64km tour and see the diversity of Bolivia, plus risk your life! It really is a must see for outdoor adventurers. Use our guide below to figure out when you should tip on your adventure in Bolivia.
Taxis: Tipping a taxi driver isn’t expected unless they are hired for a full day. If that’s the case then 10% is a good tip.
Hotels: If the bell boy was to handle your baggage then you should give him about Bs5-8 a bag. The maid should get about Bs8 a night.
Restaurants: Service is often included but the wage is pretty low. An additional 5-10% is a nice gesture if the service was good.
Bars: Like restaurants a service charge will be included in the total. If you enjoyed yourself then 5-10% of the total is a good tip.
Other: You should tip your guides about 40-80 Bs a day. With the driver getting about half that amount.
