  1. We're on a cruise early next month starting in Santiago (San Antonio) with several port stops along the Chilean coast. All of our tour excursions are booked with the cruise line (Celebrity). Will tipping tour guides using U.S. dollars be acceptable or should I arrange for pesos beforehand? One or two other places - the shuttle bus driver, porters at the airport and at the pier?

If anyone could point me in the right direction for answers it sure would be appreciated.
