How Not to Look Like a Tourist

Porthole Cruise Magazine - - The Insider -

It’s not just the in­abil­ity to speak Span­ish that marks one as a tourist, as there are ex­pa­tri­ates who have ac­cli­mated quite well to the cul­ture with­out ever pro­gress­ing be­yond ba­sic greet­ings like buenos días and ¿cómo está usted?

Vis­i­tors tend to be sub­stan­tially less mod­est in terms of cloth­ing. No lo­cal, for ex­am­ple, would walk into a res­tau­rant or bou­tique in their beach bikini or barech­ested in a pair of board shorts. A lit­tle mod­esty goes a long way in es­tab­lish­ing lo­cal bona fides.
