Gift Giving Etiquette

When invited to a home, wine, spirits, pastries, and chocolates are welcome. Don’t bring gifts that are either purple or black. If you receive a gift, feel free to open it immediately rather than waiting.

Dress Etiquette

People in the Dominican Republic determine your social class based upon your clothing. Being well-dressed and dressing conservatively is highly valued. So while the beach is the right place for that bikini or swim trunks, those clothing shouldn’t be worn off the beach, in shops, and in restaurants.

Men may wear the guayabera shirt with nice slacks in certain situations.
