Prosperous Entertaining

Colombians are known for their generosity and hospitality and may even invite you to their home. When coffee is offered at someone’s home, always accept it because it is considered rude if you don’t.

Normal protocol for social occasions is to be at least 30 minutes late.

When it comes to making the first toast, always allow the host to make it.

Typically, the person who has initiated the invitation will pay for a meal in a restaurant, although you may have to fight for the check even though you have issued the invitation.

Dinner is normally around 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM. Dinner parties usually begin at 8:00 PM and dinner will probably be served between 10:00 PM to 12:00 AM.

Colombians like to dress formally for their events.
