Cuidado! Even if you're fluent in Spanish, you might feel like a "bobo" (dummy) trying to navigate the ins and outs of Punta Cana slang. Not only is local lingo in Punta Cana sprinkled with colorful phrases and "Spanglish" a-go-go, Dominicans, like Cubans, also habitually cut off the last few letters (or even an entire syllable!) of a word, making even common utterances hard to discern.

But not to worry! With a little practice – and this Punta Cana lingo for bobos cheat sheet – you'll be slinging slang with everyone from the resort bartender to your Scuba diving leader.
