"The most common mistake made..." Santa Fe Local Custom Tip by emmalola

Santa Fe Local Customs: 28 reviews and 43 photos

The most common mistake made by travelers is forgetting that people do live in Santa Fe and do depend on the tourist dollar for their paycheck. There is a certain tension between those who live and work there and those who play there. When visiting Santa Fe, treat it like you would the home of any esteemed host who is gracious enough to extend their open arms of welcoming to you. And remember- things don't move as fast in Santa Fe. They don't need to, and you're on vacation, so you don't need them to either. Relax, enjoy and let the warm welcome take you in. Oh- and eat a lot of green chili. yummmmm.
