Luz, I opine it might be "un Don Juan". He was a real cool operator, and for a Spaniard about as cool as it gets. That's my opinion, others may have some other way of saying it, not sure.

It does not translate word for word, of course, because it is english slang.

But the best fitting conjugate would be "papi chulo"... straight translation being "fly daddy" which is close to "fly guy" or "cool guy" which is widely used especially with nuyoricans (Puerto Ricans in New York)... so float with that...

If it is to be a nice remark, then:

Es un tipo buena gente. (generico)
Es un tipo bien chevere! (Puerto Rican)
Es una persona a "toda madre" (Mexican)

No, yo creo que cool guy se refiere, más que a alguien que es buena persona, a alguien que es muy buena para llevarse bien con casi cualquier otra, ¿correcto? O sea, que es muy simpático.

Mi opinión serÃ*a: tipo simpático.

Culísimo

En Puerto Rico simplemente dicen "tipo cool" y no creo que haya un término equivalente 100% con "cool guy".Si defines "cool guy" como "someone you can trust" entonces lo más cercano sería "buena gente" aunque "buena gente" tiene otras connotaciones.

Si defines "cool guy" como "the guy who's into the latest fashion,music,art,etc" entonces no hay palabra equivalente,solamente "tipo cool".Yo a ese tipo de persona les digo culísimo porque casi siempre ese status de cool es una pose del individuo que se autodenomina "cool".
