“piropos” (there might be an accent somewhere in that word) roughly translates to “compliments” but really refers to pick-up lines.  here are some costa rican come-ons i learned today.

1. Quisiera ser visco para verte doble.
Rough translation: I would squint to see two of you.

2. Usted con esas curvas y yo sin frenos.”
Rough translation: You have those curves and I don’t have brakes to stop.

3. Corazón de melon, cada vez que te veo, se me cae el pantalon.
Rough translation: My heart is so big, each time I see you, my pants fall down.

4. Vaya por la sombra, que los bombones con el calor se derriten.
Rough translation: Go to the shade, because you sweet chocolate thing will melt with this heat.

5. Quisiera ser lágrima para vivir en tus ojos, vivir en tus mejillas y morir en tus labios.
Rough translation: I want to be the tear that lives in your eyes and on your cheek, and dies on your lips.

6. Las aguas buscan las rios. Los rios buscan el mar. Mis labios buscan los tuyos para poderlos besar.
Rough translation: Water looks for rivers. Rivers look for the sea. My lips looks for your lips so that I may kiss them.

7. Tu amor es como un paquete de fideos ramen; barato pero bueno.
Rough translation: Your love is like a pack of ramen noodles; cheap but good.
(just kidding. that’s not costa rican. jason came up with that one during class)

8. Las rosas son rojos, las violetas son azules, yo quiero estar en sus pantalones.
Rough translation: Roses are red, violets are blue, i want to be in your pants.
(yeah, ok, that’s not costa rican either).
