ATMs widely available. Credit cards accepted in most midrange and top-end hotels and restaurants.
In restaurants the serviço (service charge) is usually included in the bill and is mandatory; when it is not included in the bill, it’s customary to leave a 10% tip. If a waiter is friendly and helpful, you can give more.
There are many other places where tipping is not customary but is a welcome gesture. The workers at local juice stands, bars and coffee corners, and street- and beach-vendors, are all tipped on occasion. Parking assistants receive no wages and are dependent on tips, usually about R$4. Taxi drivers are not usually tipped, but it is common to round up the fare.
