SOCIAL HINTS
------------
SOCIAL LIFE IS QUITE INFORMAL. HANDSHAKING IS COMMON FORM
OF GREETING. AS A MARK OF RESPECT "DON" FOR A MAN AND "DONNA"
FOR A WOMAN SHOULD BE USED BEFORE THEIR FIRST NAMES.
NORMAL COURTESIES SHOULD BE OBSERVED WHEN VISITING SOMEONE'S
HOME. FOR MOST OCCASIONS CASUAL WEAR IS ACCEPTABLE, BUT
BEACHWEAR SHOULD BE CONFINED TO THE BEACH ONLY. IN SAN JOSE
WOMEN MUST DRESS APPROPRIATELY, FOR EXAMPLE ARE NOT PERMITTED
TO WEAR STRAPLESS DRESSES OR SHORTS.

BUSINESS HINTS
--------------
BUSINESS IS QUITE FORMAL, AND A HANDSHAKE IS THE CUSTOMARY
GREETING. CUSTOMS TEND TO BE CONSERVATIVE. ADVANCE
APPOINTMENTS, COURTESY AND PUNCTUALITY ARE IMPORTANT.
IT IS PREFERABLE TO HAVE SOME KNOWLEDGE OF SPANISH AS IT
WILL HELP THE VISITORS IN THERE BUSINESS TALKS. ALTHOUGH
MANY LOCALS SPEAK & USE ENGLISH AS OFFICIAL LANGUAGE.
