Mexicans are not huge sticklers for etiquette. Their natural warmth takes precedence.
Greetings ‘Mucho gusto’ (roughly ‘A great pleasure’) is a polite thing to say when you’re introduced to someone, accompanied by a handshake. If it’s a woman and a man, the woman offers her hand first.
Pleasing people Mexicans love to hear that you’re enjoying their country. They are slow to criticize or argue, expressing disagreement more by nuance than by blunt contradiction.
Visiting homes An invitation to a Mexican home is an honor for an outsider; you will be treated very hospitably. Take a small gift, such as flowers or something for the children. Be at least 30 minutes late; being on time is considered rude.
