Customary Tips

  • Greetings: A friendly “Hola” (Hello) or “Buenos días” (Good morning) goes a long way.
  • Dining: Lunch is typically the main meal, and dinner is usually eaten late, around 9 PM or later.
  • Tipping: Tipping is appreciated but not mandatory. Leaving a small tip (5-10%) for good service is customary.
