    Default Trying to figure this out

    Hello,

    I was hoping maybe I could get some help on this here. I've asked my uncle and my parents but the translation doesn't seem to be coming out right (so they say)

    Anyway how would you translate "Party Boy" into slang spanish?

    My friend and I were going to go with Chico Fiesta but that also doesn't seem right some how.

    Sorry for my ignorance, but what do you call a "party boy"?

    How about "fiestero"? That would be a guy who likes parties a lot and is always in one.
    Do people from other Spanish speaking countries use it too?

    Hmmm - how to explane. Maybe a guy that likes to be the life of the party - get's it started. Wherever he goes that's where it's at.

    "Fiestero" I've never heard it said before. Nor has my uncle (he used to be quite the partier back in his day) Not sure if that works right.

    The Urban Dictionary says "fiesterino", but I go for "fiestero" as Verónica said... at least in Argentina we call them "fiesteros".

    Let's wait for the other members of the forum to give their version about this term in their countries.

    I think "fiestero" is only Argentine slang...

    we also say fiestero here in Cuba, we also say farandulero but this is a more elite-party-type of.

    WE have other slangs in Venezuela such as "parrandero" but they are probably too local. Fiestero would be more widely understodd in most lating countries.

    Hebe, my friend, we also say parrandero here in Cuba but it is more referring to popular parties, like a massive carnival thing. I would definetely go for fiestero, seems like we all use it in our countries.

    I agree SandraT.

    In Argentina we call "farandula" to the famous media people (actors, actresses, etc.) and we say "se fue de parranda" more than "parrandero".... "no estaba muerto, estaba de parranda..." says the song.
