What cultural faux pas should I try to avoid making in La Romana?

Answer this Question

We asked people in La Romana if they could share any humorous cultural blunders they commited. For new expats, keep in mind that these incidents are an inevitable part of expat life. Learning to laugh about them is the key!...

"When visiting La Romana, Dominican Republic, avoid wearing revealing clothing in public places, as it may be considered disrespectful. Be mindful of personal space and avoid touching people without their permission. Do not take photos of locals without asking for their consent first. Avoid discussing sensitive topics such as politics, religion, and race. Be respectful of local customs and traditions, and try to learn a few basic phrases in Spanish to show your interest in their culture. Do not litter or damage the environment, and be cautious when bargaining at markets, as aggressive haggling may be considered rude. Finally, be punctual for appointments and meetings, as punctuality is valued in the Dominican Republic," said a member in La Romana, the Dominican Republic.
