In Costa Rica, and perhaps other Central American countries, it stands for fake hippies - those that
dress like hippies and try to look like hippies, selling cheap handicrafts and deficiently juggling on the street (save a few exceptions), but are quick
to start trouble - many
up in violence (information came from various sources).Chancletudos
are well known
to be thieves and troublemakers.
Chancletudas are well known
to be very cheap prostitutes
posing as hippies.
If you happen
to travel to Central America, be wary of these people. Some are ok, but most are very shady.
..just a word of advise directed to travellers.
