2. Don’t Get Ready to Go Out to Eat Early

Spain runs on time, it just runs on Spanish time. The Spanish do everything late, including eating their meals. Most restaurants outside of tourist-heavy areas are open during lunch which, in Spain, is usually around 1 pm to 3 pm. Dinner is similar, with most places rarely serving meals until 9 pm at least. Although this might take a bit of getting used to, dining with locals is worth every second of waiting.
