Don’t forget to show respect for the local culture by learning a few Papiamentu phrases - depending on the time of day, greet locals with "bon dia" (good morning), "bon tardi" (good afternoon), or "bon nochi" (good evening/night). To give thanks, say "danki" (thank you), or "masha danki" (thank you very much).
