Love that you are asking! That is so kind of you. I always tip my housekeepers! I would give at least $2. usd per person per day. You can give a little more if you like. Most likely she is only making 86. pesos a day, maybe a little more, but she has a secure job and hopefully with benefits, so making an extra few dollars on the side is GREAT!! Enjoy your stay in Cozumel.
With your housekeeper atleast $5us per day. Although staying in a condo is different than a motel. I loved not having three loads of clothes to do when I got home last year.

They work hard for the money. Cash gives them the option to purchase what they prefer with the funds that you leave.
The most important thing in life is not knowing everything, it's having the phone number of somebody who does!

If you 3 normal guys (messy!) I would tip 10 bucks a day for the 3 of you. Maybe a little more depending how messy you are.
We tip daily in case they need the money that day and in case some days have a different maid.

I started writing in big letters "PROPINQUA" on a piece of paper from the notepad in the desk and leaving that under the coins. That got the message through that it was intended as a tip.
I think the word you are looking for is Propina, like others I like to give to the maid in person...., saying, a gift to you for special service/"un regalo para usted para el servicio especial", may not be correct translation but I get across, especially if service has been good. At our recent stay our waiter/mesero for daily continental breakfast(included with cost of the room) and the housekeeper was one in the same.
