What cultural faux pas should I try to avoid making in Guatemala City?

Answer this Question

We asked people in Guatemala City 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!...

"In Guatemala City, it is important to be respectful of local customs and traditions. Avoid making negative comments about the country or its people, as this can be seen as offensive. Additionally, it is important to dress modestly, especially when visiting religious sites. It is also important to be aware of the local language and to be respectful when speaking to locals. Finally, it is important to be aware of the local customs regarding public displays of affection, as some may be seen as inappropriate," wrote a member who made the move to Guatemala City, Guatemala.
