Feel good about tipping Cubans. Treat them as you would those who provide services and assistance at home.
Authentic Cuba Tours policy for our island collaborators is the following:
Please, do keep in mind that they share your tips with their co-workers
and family. They donate a percentage of your tips to the national health and education systems.
We recommend the following amounts in Cuban Convertible Pesos (CUC)
Your Guide: 6.00 CUC per day per person.
Your Bus Driver: 4.00 CUC per day per person.
Your pre-paid food service staff: 1.50 CUC per meal per person.
Hotel Porters: 1.50 CUC per person or more if you have lots of luggage.
Restaurant food service staff not included in tour package: 10% of cost of meal per meal per person.
Chambermaids: 1.50 CUC per day per room (can be split with your roommate).
Taxi Drivers: 10% of fare in CUC
Don't leave toothpaste, leftover toiletries and other used items, or foreign coins or currency in place of tips. Give tips to Cubans who help you in CUC (the money Cubans can spend on the things they really need).
If you make a special friend, then a nice gift is always appropriate, together with personal things you don't need to take home.
