    Chulo could be a few things. Kids use it for saying something's "cool" like: "Eso ta' chulo" | "That's cool". Also a chulo is like a sankie who "works" with dominican women the same way regular sankies do with gringas. And the last meaning i have in my memory would be the same as a pimp.

    Default chula

    I heard that when they say chula to a girl/woman chula means that you are cute.

    The most frequently-used version of the word "chulo" that I've heard is pimp.

    What was the definition you had from the dictionary?

    chulo & chulo/a have varies meanings and the signifcance is regional.

    It can mean:

    chulo= proxeneta= "a pimp"

    chulo/a= algo bonito, gracioso

    chulo/a = "cute"

    It can mean cool, it can mean pimp. Chula I have no idea. In Venezuela when someone is chulandote it means they are not paying their fair share. For example if only one person has a pack of cigarettes and the whole group smokes them on you. Or if you are always the one paying for something.

    It seems that using chulo/chula in the wrong place or context could get one in a spot of trouble.
