San Juan - Post Report Question and Answers

What is the typical dress code at work and in public places? Is formal dress ever required?

Like in USA. - May 2023

San Juan is reasonably dressy and flip flops will mark you as a tourist. However, on the other side of the island (Mayaguez, etc) everyone is quite casual. - Jan 2014

Clothing here runs the gamut of very dressy to very, very casual. Many women seem to favor platform stiletto shoes and very tight flashy clothing. Most work places have business attire dress codes. On more formal occasions men can get away with wearing a guayabera and slacks instead of a suit. - Jun 2013
