Tipping in small hotels

We have been tipping about 10 pesos a day in the room in small hotels. Is that still ok? Playa or other places like Tulum or the Islas?

That’s what I tip a grocery bagger, and it’s about 50 cents. If you are talking about tipping the maid, I would leave 30 to 50 pesos a day.

We are tipping more than that. 10 pesos is a bit just barely over 50 cents US today. I think 20 pesos a day is the lowest amount I would pay. We had a two story suite our last stay at Holbox, with 3 people staying in it. We tipped about $40 pesos a day for that

For a small and very basic hotel room, I think 50 pesos is likely good.

last month on Isla Mujeres we left 100 per day - but that was at a 2 BR condo.

I leave about $3 USD per day or 50 to 60 pesos.

I'll usually tip 50 pesos/day then a larger tip on the last day, like 200 pesos.

I believe it is no reason to leave more the last day as it is most often different maids doing the room. Any thoughts about this?

Yes- it could be the maid’s day off the day you leave (the one who looked after your room all week).
