That's a derogatory term for a person who is a bit "dumb". The literal meaning can be found here:
- adj. Que padece mongolismo. U. t. c. s.
Mongolismo refers means "Down's Syndrome".
So when a person uses the term "mongóloco/a", they don't mean literally that the other person sufers "Down's Syndrome" but that the person has reduced mental capacities.
