[quote=@eeeefarm][quote=@eclaire]I hear this a lot - about bringing chocolates… have never done this, we typically just tip in CUCs… what type of chocolates do you bring along? Do you hand them out when getting a drink, or leaving a restaurant? I think its a sweet gesture… might bring some along this year if the Cubans appreciate it
[/quote]I sometimes bring a large chocolate bar for the front desk. Otherwise, small wrapped “kisses” or Peanut Butter Cups or similar (small boxes of Smarties are good). I’ll leave a tip for the maid with a chocolate beside it. If I am walking around the resort in the early hours, I might hand out a chocolate to anyone I run into…guests or staff, matters not to me. Security guards are most appreciative after a long, boring night.
The other thing I like to do is to help people out with bug spray if they are stuck…as security guards are…standing around at dusk or dawn when the mosquitoes are bad. I don’t give away bug spray (too expensive!) but I do offer a quick spray to anyone being annoyed by mosquitoes. (I was very popular waiting for the bus at Cayo Largo one time. It was dusk, the mossies were fierce, and I seemed to be the only one waiting who had bug spray available)
Such a great idea - love it! Going to pick up some chocolates and do the same thing
