    How to use "Barrio" in context?

    Barrio is an informal term used by Puerto Ricans and others in the Caribbean to denote any densely populated neighbourhood. The Spanish word barrio comes from the Arabic word baryija hills, which referred to the hills on the outskirts of Damascus, the capital of Syria. Puerto Ricans borrowed the word to describe the neighbourhoods of San Juan, Ponce, Caguas, Mayaguez and many other towns on the island.

    In Puerto Rican Spanish, barrio often refers to a residential area, and not just a municipality or district. It is a term used to describe blocks, streets, and sometimes even individual homes.
