This expression is widely used by shopkeepers, waitresses and even hotel clerks to indicate business could be better. In a cab, headed from your hotel to El Morro? Chatting with the driver, laying down Spanish like a boss as he negotiates the narrow streets? Sound a tad confusing? So if someone refers to you as mijo or mijafeel complimented.
Pay attention to this one.
It could be your warning to clear out of the area! Time to check out a different club, perhaps? Another of my favorite Puerto Rican expressions, this is definitely a slang term that has no literal anchor. The two syllables can be drawn out so the tiny word seems bigger.
This is a slang expression for cash. I suppose there are worse things to be than a garden squash but in Puerto Rico, this is a mild insult. Someone showing off just for the heck of it might earn this remark. Did a loudmouth cut the line at a popular dance club?
This expression is widespread in Spanish-speaking countries globally, and is used quite freely in Puerto Rico, too. When the waitress reports the kitchen is out of mofongo? Who knows?
Just be careful when using this word outside Puerto Rico, as it has a much more vulgar meaning in other Spanish-speaking countries! This expression can be heard frequently in gaming areas of the many casinos in San Juan, meaning that someone lost all their money. Guagua is a slang term for the many buses that run through San Juan, Old San Juan and the surrounding communities. They arrive when they arrive, without apology or explanation. This is a very useful addition to your Spanish vocabulary if you plan to go exploring the quaint towns and beautiful playas beaches outside the city limits.
