Guidelines for Tipping on Lighthouse Reef

Tipping for great service and going the extra mile is traditional in the adventure travel industry.

We feel a tipping budget from $100 to $200 from each traveler is a good range to consider or a tipping budget totaling between $5 to $10 per guide each day from each traveler.

On your Lighthouse Reef trip you will typically have two sets of guides – one for your first day and a half inland portion 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 monies before you board the charter boat in Belize City 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.
