Local people are very friendly, talkative, and hospitable. Tourists, who visit the town for the first time, might consider the way local people talk quite unusual or even strange. The reason for that is simple â€“ locals are fluent in both English and Spanish and sometimes they mix words and expressions from these languages, adding local slang and idioms. That is why from time to time even tourists fluent in the languages mentioned above find it hard to understand what locals mean. When it comes to the national character, local people are very calm and smooth-tempered. It is quite hard to make them angry, but if something is touching or exciting, they are not afraid of expressing their feelings.
Local people often use informal language when talking to each other, and that applies to unknown people as well. At the same time, chummy manners are unacceptable here and such people may be considered rude. While talking to local people, it is important to treat them with respect and do not try to show any kind of superiority. Curiosity is one more trait of the national character. Local people are accustomed to a great number of tourists who visit their town virtually all year round. Sellers in workshops, owners of cafes and private hotels will surely ask a couple of questions to visitors, such as their home city, occupation, and the purpose of a visit.
Local people are hardworking, but together with deliberation and impromptness their behavior can be quite unusual. While heading to a meeting with a business partner, it is important to pay attention to such accessories as a stylish pen or business card â€“ these details are not trifles for locals. It is also important to select outfits carefully not only for business meetings. In general, any outfit is good for a leisure stroll, but too bright or too extravagant clothes can make locals raise their brows.
