Are you thinking of Iaunching your products in Mexico? Here are a few cultural tips to keep in mind to get your business off to a good start.

  • Learn a few words or phrases in Spanish before you meet with potential business partners. They may speak fluent English, but they will appreciate the effort and see it as a sign of respect.
  • Lunch is later than in the US - often sometime between 1 and 3 pm. Don't expect the conversation to be all about business - this is a leisurely meal that is more about getting to know everyone.
  • Don't hail a taxi on the street. Ask someone to call a cab for you from a reliable company.
  • Remember that Mexico City - or DF as Mexicans call it - is over 7,000 feet above sea level. You may feel light-headed or very sleepy when you arrive. Pace yourself the first few days until you are used to the altitude.
  • Punctuality is not important in social situations. Take a deep breath and relax.
