Guidelines for Tipping on the Epic Belize
Tipping for great service and going the extra mile is traditional in the adventure travel industry.
A suggested general guideline is a tipping budget totaling between $10 to $20 per traveller per day. For example, on our 10 day Epic Belize trip that suggested tipping budget would total $100-200 per person or $200-400 per couple.
On the Epic Belize trip you will typically have two sets of guides – one for your inland & river days and another guide team for the reef portion of the trip. You can tip individuals for outstanding service within your guiding team or provide a general tip for the entire guiding team - whichever you feel most comfortable with.
For the inland guiding team we suggest giving them any tips you’d like to leave with them before you board the charter boat in Dangriga as you will not see these people at the end of the trip. For those who want to provide a general tip for the island guiding team, a tip box will become available on the last day of your trip. This tip will be shared proportionately amongst the guiding staff, the cooks, the support camp staff, and the operations staff.
