We have been staying at an Airbnb for a month. The woman who comes in every day, cleans, shops and cooks two meals a day. She is wonderful. What is the range for tipping for this service.

Thank you for your help. Ken

We got a driver instead of a cook, but his services were otherwise pretty much the same at our long term rental. He used his own vehicle and gas. He also provided us with an old cell phone to keep in touch with him. He lived in town and our rental was out on Playa Blanca, so he did a good amount of driving. At the end of 5 weeks I gave him $500 US and he seemed more than happy.

That is a very tough question to answer as tipping is so much a personal thing. I know it’s too late now but in the future I would suggest tipping her weekly and not all at the end. The $500 USD or $10,000 MXN in the response above does seem appropriate to me. That is around $17 usd per day plus whatever salary you are already paying would be fine for Zihua. We only stay for a week but tip about $20 for 1 meal but only used this service for 3 meals. You should contact your Airbnb host and ask for help with this. Would love if you could send me a private message with contact info for this lady.
