Their name comes from the greek "cacos" meaning "bad" or "low quality"(Example: cacophony) and was a term in used in Spain referring to a low-life. The female counterpart is called "caca" humorously enough.
Cacos listen to reggaeton in the same way that wankstas listen to gangsta rap and chavs listen to garage but they will also listen to anything resembling the sound(i.e. no talent music about gangs,hos and tha ghetto).
Caco fashion generally consists of mostly athletic clothes of known brands or anything that makes them look like they're rich(which is hypocritical considering their inverse snob ghetto behavior).
Males: brightly colored basketball jerseys wife beaters or long white T-shirts, baggy denim shorts, expensive reebok or nike sneakers(usually white) or wheat colored Timberland or Lugz boots and a white or 2 toned baseball cap. When cacos want to dress fine on a night out, they will wear imitation designer jeans, horizontal striped polo shirts and a pair of pointy tan colored shoes(puerto rican fence hoppers). Preferred hairstyles are usually crew cuts which makes them looks like clones of each other or corn rows. And of course no "self respecting" caco would be complete without a shit-load of gold jewelry mainly thick heavy gold chains with a huge medallion or cross, heavy gold rings and of course an imitation "blinged out" diamond earrings.
Females: Are J-Lo wannabes so they will fashion themselves after her gaining a look that makes them look like cheap ghetto whores. Generallly they will wear tight "booty" jeans showing they're panties or tight trackpants or with a shiny writing on the ass or a slutty bright colored miniskirt, tight brightly colored tops with cheap floral designs or shiny letterings on them and high-heeled shoes or sandals. Like their male counterparts they will also sport a fairly large amount of bling.
Cacos are extremely fond of riced-out jap cars. Their choice rides are usually Mitsubishi Mirage Technicas or Honnda Civics which they will trick-out with fart exhausts, body kits, chrome rims, tacky stickers and of course a bass sound system to blast their infernal reggaeton music to innocent citizens trying to get a good night's sleep. They also like to ride ATVs, pocket bikes or mopeds with radios instaled.
Cacos do not get along with "roqueros"(rockers) because they stereotype them as devil-worshippers. Despite the fact that they go to church cacos break all 10 commandments(stealing, murdering,adultery and of course gay prison sex) whenever they can so their hatred towards roqueros is hypocritical.
In short cacos are annoying scum and give Puerto Ricans a bad name.
Daddy Yankee,Don Omar and Winsin&Yandel are poster boys for the caco subculture.
The female is caca. Who is also very similar to the chola and chonga.
They listen to reggaeton at full blast and their only known "dance move" is perreo (grinding).
Caco fashion consists of shirts at least 2 or 3 sizes larger, really low, baggy pants, cheap trucker caps, and sports shoes such as Nike, Reebok or Adidas.
They also wear a lot of over sized gold jewelry. Mostly large chains with huge golden charms. The amount of gold colored jewelry does not mean cacos are rich. Most wear gold-plated accessories, unless they work dealing with drugs or stole it.
The rides of cacos vary, but they like colored rims and lights, an obsessive amount of car stickers, a modified exhaust for extra loudness, a loud bass so everyone can listen to their reggaeton. They also like to change the color of the front and back hood or put a pattern on them.
The natural enemy of cacos are the "rockeros" (people listen to punk/rock and dress with that style).
Because they say these are "comemierdas" (snobs) and "satánicos" (Satanists), but mostly because the typical caco lacks intelligence and probably envies that rockero's are more educated.
