Greetings Etiquette

It’s impolite to begin any conversation without saying hello, no matter how brief that conversation may be. In particular, if you enter a public establishment, you should say hello and goodbye, preferably saying “bonjour” for hello and “au revoir” for goodbye.

Dress Etiquette

As in most Caribbean locales, it’s inappropriate to wear swimwear away from the pools and beaches. Dress when going out is semi-casual, in that a man should wear pants and a button-down shirt and women should wear casual dresses.
