"In Spain, it is important to follow the same customs that are observed in other countries. For example, cultural faux pas to avoid in Los Alcazares include: - Refraining from discussing anything too personal in public. This includes politics and religion, as it is seen as rude to openly discuss these topics in a public setting. - Refraining from wearing clothing that is deemed too provocative. This includes clothing that is overly revealing, such as skimpy tank tops or shorts that are too short. - Refraining from using overly aggressive body language and shouting or raising your voice when interacting with others. - Refraining from tipping in bars and restaurants, as a tip is not expected or required. - Refraining from bringing up any inappropriate topics of conversation, such as sexual content. - Refraining from taking pictures or videos of others without their permission. - Refraining from being disrespectful in any way, such as greeting with a kiss on the cheek instead of a handshake.
