A Papi Chulo is a Spanish Slang word for Pimp Daddy or Attractive man.

In Latin-American Spanish slang, a papi chulo is an attractive man.

While the term originally names a pimp, it has broadened to refer to a ladies' man.

The term Papi Chulo was used as a very derogatory term.

This term still carries some of these connotations, so one should be very careful when using it that they do not cause offense to someone.

However, the term chulo accompanied by papi is most often used to describe a sexy, confident man who is well dressed.

A direct translation of papi chulo from Spanish is “pimp daddy,” with papi being a diminutive form of “father” (and used like “baby”) and chulo meaning “pimp” but also “attractive,” “cocky,” or “cool” in colloquial settings.

Chulo alone has a storied history in American English.

The female version of Papi Chulo is Chulo.

Chula is often seen in the phrase mami chula, a Spanish form of “hot mama” for a sexy woman.

Its male counterpart is papi chulo, for a “ladies' man.”
