Caribbean and Central America Local Customs: 13 reviews and 8 photos
in the caribbean it is common for people to stop and chat to eachother when meeting on the street. If you are invited into visit with a family, remember to carry a gift of Fruit, or some freshly purchased Flowers or Veggies.
When comming to Dinner it is assummed that the person comming is a guest due the finest of the household, and knowing that you will be treated well, when invited means that you should remember the kindness of your hosts.
I have given gifts of Tia Maria, Wine, Rum, large baskets of Gynip, Pineapple, Bananas and even Freshly Caught Fish when coming in from a costal city to visit a friend Inland who may not get Fresh Fish Daily.
Being a good guest, insures getting invited back, and don't forget to invite your hosts to visit you at your home. Don't be suprised when they do, Caribbean People travel a great deal, and love to 'Go A Foreign'.
