Tipping in The Cayman Islands is common as it is a resort destination and tipping is used as a reward for good service. The Cayman Islands is known for its great beaches and amazing dive sites. It is a MUST for any divers and water fanatics! Use our tipping guide below to learn how much you should tip when traveling around the Caymans.
Taxis: You will agree on the fare when entering the cab, however you are still expected to tip 10-15% on top of this.
Hotels: Though you may see a service charge added to your bill you are still expected to tip. You should tip the bellboy $1-2 per bag and the maid $1-2 a night.
Restaurants: Tax and service is already included in the bill at about 15%. If you feel the service was exceptional then you can add a bit extra or round up. This extra will go directly to the waiter rather then to house to be split between everyone.
Bars: Like restaurants tax and service is included in the bill. Most people will tip the bar tender $.50 to 1 to get better service.
Other: If diving or snorkeling you should also tip the crew. Depending on your experience you should aim to tip $5-15 per person per day. Don’t forget your life is in your diver masters hands at times!
