comment Latinoamérica, Hispanoamérica, or Sudamérica?
There is no geographical name for "anything south of US". Not in English, not in Spanish, nor in any other language.

comment Latinoamérica, Hispanoamérica, or Sudamérica?
@Ricardo: in Spanish geography all of America is just one continent, but in English (and many others) it's two continents: North America and South America. Thus it's not correct to say that Mexico is only Latin country in North America - Central America is region within North American continent. Geographically Caribbean also belongs to North America.

Even in normal common usage it's not limited to these two cases.

comment Different words for “beer”
I'd say that tercio is specifically 33cl bottled beer (you'd wouldn't expect 33cl of keg beer asking for a tercio). Caña is 20cl small glass of keg beer, doble is slightly bigger glass (40cl).

comment Difference between usage of “por favor” and “please”
In this case it's not really "in Spanish", it's "in Spain".

comment What is the plural of 'Cuba Libre' (the beverage)?
Not really relevant, as almost no one will understand what "Cuba Libre" is. In Spanish it's "cubata".
