    $500 is about right for 3 hrs in the area you live. I am in El Millon and taking what I pay my maid and then dividing it for 3 hrs that sounds about right. Keep in mind the area you live in, $500 really is more or less the norm.

    What does the area have to do with it? Wages in the capital are higher than in el campo, but it doesn't matter if it's in Piantini, Millon, Los Cacicazgos or Gazcue.

    500 pesos for three hours is a lot though, is she doing another house after yours, than 300 should do. Is she going home after yours, pay her 500 and tell her to stay the whole day and cook as well.
