Have a good day in Spanish

Learning a new language goes beyond memorizing vocabulary and understanding grammatical rules; it also becomes necessary to learn common phrases from that new culture—phrases that enable basic interactions with people. That’s why, in this opportunity, we will talk about the various ways to say ‘Have a good day’ in Spanish, so you can better understand the slang of Spanish speakers. Let’s get started!

Different ways to say have a good day in spanish

Saying have a good day in Spanish not only represents courtesy but also helps individuals build confidence in speaking Spanish with native speakers. Below are some of the most common phrases in Spanish to wish someone a good day.

“¡Que tengas un buen día!”

Translates directly to ‘Have a good day,’ making it a standard phrase suitable for various contexts.

Examples:

  • “Ya me voy, que tengas un buen día” – “I’m leaving now, have a good day.”
  • “Muchas gracias, que tengas un buen día” – “Thanks, have a good day.”

In plural, the phrase becomes:

  • “Ya me voy, que tengan un buen día” – “I’m leaving now, have a good day.”
  • “Muchas gracias, que tengan un buen día” – “Thanks, have a good day.”

“Lindo día/Bonito día”

A shorter and more colloquial version of wishing someone a good day in Spanish.

Examples:

  • “Aquí tiene su pedido, lindo día!” – “Here is your order, have a nice day!”
  • “Un placer atenderle, bonito día” – “A pleasure to assist you, have a nice day.”

Note: both expressions mean ‘Have a good day’ and can also be used to describe the weather. However, when used as a synonym for ‘Que tengas un buen día,’ the phrase is part of the farewell and is not preceded by a verb.

“¡Que te vaya bien!”

Another popular phrase to wish someone a good day in Spanish is ‘¡Que te vaya bien!’

This expression means ‘May things go well for you’ and can be used in various contexts. To use it correctly, consider the following:

  • It is used when someone is leaving a place.
  • It refers both to a farewell and to the literal wish ‘have a good day.’

To adapt the phrase to plural or a different person, change the indirect pronoun accordingly.

Examples:

  • “¡Que les vaya bien, niños!” – “May things go well for you, children.”
  • “¡Que te vaya bien!” – “May things go well for you.”

 

“¡Que tengas un bonito día!”

This expression is a variation of ‘que tengas buen día’ and is a bit more casual, implying more familiarity.

Like the phrase ‘Que tengas buen día,’ the verb ‘tener’ should be modified. For multiple people: ‘¡Que tengan un bonito día!’ or for a singular person: ‘¡Que tengas un bonito día!’

“Buen día”

“Buen día” is the most direct and concise way to wish someone a good day in Spanish. It can be used as a greeting but also as a brief and straightforward way to wish people a good day.

This expression is more informal than ‘lindo día’ or ‘bonito día’ but is suitable for use with close family and friends.

Examples:

  • “Aquí tiene su pedido, buen día!” – “Here is your order, have a good day!”
  • “Un placer atenderle, buen día” – “A pleasure to assist you, have a good day.”

As we’ve seen, the expression have a good day in spanish has various ways of being said, some more formal than others, but all work perfectly in almost every context.

We recommend learning these different expressions to expand your vocabulary to the fullest, allowing you to sound more natural in diverse situations. Keep in mind that with some of these phrases, you may need to make grammatical adjustments.
