Argentina

Considering the fact that there are so many wonderful restaurants in Argentina, it would probably help to know a little about tipping. The customary amount is 10 percent, which should be added regardless of whether or not a service or table charge has been added. Taxi drivers, on the other hand, are rarely tipped — unless they help with your bags. Taxis have a union, so their pay is already well taken care of. At hotels, two pesos (only about $0.14) can be given to porters per bag. Interestingly, in Argentinian movie theaters, ushers often show patrons to their seats and give them additional information about the show. In these cases, tipping up to five pesos is acceptable and more than adequate.
