When people go on vacation they take on a whole different attitude.
Usually they become arrogant and critical of everything.
When one little thing out of a thousand, they act like the total vacation is ruined.
My wife and I watch these type of people all the time and laugh.
When they go to Mexico these people act like they are better than everyone else.
People working in resorts and tours are doing the best that they can with what they have for very little money ( usually only tips ). We should all show them respect and patience.
There are soo many rude tourist out there that ruin their own vacation, the vacations of others and make the days of the employees total hell for nothing.
I have been all over the world and over 100 times in Cancun.
When you don't tip your waiter, bell boy, maid, taxi driver, guide, doorman, and all the great people that you have contact with. You are setting the tone for the day and these people will not forget that you are a cheap tourist that doesn't respect the time and effort that these people give to you. You will be remembered everyday as a cheap person and will not get those extra towels, extra soda, extra drink or extra service. a little 2-5 usd tip will go a long way with these people that will be looking out for you and your personal belongings when you turn your back.
You would be embarrassed if you knew what the salary of these hardworking people is and you are too cheap to tip.
If you can't afford to tip everyone, everyday maybe you should rethink your budget to include the people that make your vacation a memorable time.
For example, while in Cancun last year we left our camera in our room when we went to the beach. The maid took care of the camera and hid it in a suitcase and left us a note. We had been tipping her everyday for 3 days and she prevented a possible 2,000 usd theft of our camera. Don't be cheap ( CODO ) when in Mexico.
Most people who do not tip have a bad time on vacation, then it is their own fault. They go home and write negative lies on Trip Advisor.
I tip everyone that I have contact with everyday. They look out for us.
