"It is important to be mindful of local customs and etiquette when visiting Marbella. It is considered rude to be late for social engagements, so it is important to arrive on time. It is also important to dress modestly, as revealing clothing is considered inappropriate. Additionally, it is important to be respectful of religious sites and to avoid taking photographs without permission. Finally, it is important to be aware of the local language and to avoid speaking loudly in public," said another expat in Marbella, Spain.
