expect to pay to use restrooms, especially in cities.

up paying are still far lower than what you would pay in North America for the same products.
use the words ‘indio or indios” to refer to natives. These words are considered derogatory.

in any city, town or village.
DON’T take pictures of people without their permission.
wear jewelry out in public, as this will make you a possible target of crime.
