From region to region, you will find differences in usage and meaning. I will admit that I don't know all those in existence, especially those found in Central America, the Philippines and Equatorial Guinea, but my knowledge of what these words mean and how they are used do apply to other regions to some degree. It is really hard to advise you on which ones to use. It depends on too many things. Are you making a compliment or are you talking to your friends about her? Social standing, country, etc. Just listen to the people around you.
Then try some words and observe the reactions. Guapa or guapo : Mostly used to say that somebody has a beautiful face. This is the most common word for such things. It doesn't say anything about the rest of the body. Some young people might also use it to refer to cool situations or things, but it's slang. Bonita or bonito, not commonly used for men : Used both for people and objects. Sometimes it is better not to use this word with a woman because she might think you are treating her as an object. Hermosa hermoso : Beautiful face and body. Many years ago it was used to say that somebody looked healthy, not thin, with good skin color.
Still, nowadays, some people use it to mean a little bit fat. This difference in usage makes it a word that could be misunderstood. Not very common in Spain, maybe more common in South America. It sounds old fashioned. Bello is only used for objects. Linda : Beautiful face and body. It refers to a thin woman with graceful movements. More common in America. I can see a lot of really good answers have already been posted, but I have just a couple of things to add from my observations.
Bear in mind that I am not a native speaker of Spanish. Bonita: Generic, all-purpose term for "pretty" and sometimes "beautiful". As a case in point, the film Pretty Woman was translated into Spanish as Mujer bonita. Though there are many types of beauty, this word appears to be referring to a woman's outward appearance, especially if she is thin and graceful.
The word itself is actually a diminutive of "buena. Linda: I see this translated a lot as "cute," sometimes "pretty. Hermosa: Comes from the Latin word formosus which means "beautiful," "handsome. It also appears that this word is used to describe all sorts of women and not just those who are model thin.
Guapa: Typically just translated as "good-looking," but I sense there's more to it than that. When it is paired with "mujer," on the other hand, I get the impression that its meaning leans a bit more toward "handsome" as in a " handsome woman. As with "bonita" and "linda," this appears to be a word that describes a woman's outward appearance.
This is not the word you would choose, for example, to describe a woman's "beautiful mind. Bella: I tend to agree with Keila Perez Oliveras on this one i. It comes from the Latin bellus , which means "beautiful," "pretty," "handsome. Reserve this one for the best of the best. Note: As I mentioned, I'm not a native speaker of Spanish so the conclusions I came to above were not made lightly, nor did they come easily. They are the synthesis of examining a lot of different material. Ordinarily, I make my readers work for their TL;DR by at least having to scroll through what I've written, but it was moved to the top by fedorqui , one of Spanish Language StackExchange's moderators, and one of its best contributors, so if you like your TL;DR up front, consider yourself lucky.
Even so, I encourage you to read the rest of the article. It might take you half an hour to read, but there's lots of bolding, links, images, and sections to help you skim it faster or bypass any section that doesn't interest you. A lot of time and effort went into it, but I don't want you to read it because of that.
I want you to read it because I think you'll enjoy it and learn something in the process. I'm going to start off by commenting on some observations I've made from a guilty pleasure of mine — a television game show called 12 Corazones. It's a good show for a student of Spanish to watch because it tends to repeat some of the same words over and over and context is sometimes enriched via the action seen on the screen rather than just words on a page. It applies to your question because it is basically a dating game show where contestants use words like these to describe one another.
Suffice it to say, I don't think "lindo," as used on 12 Corazones, is well translated as "pretty boy. Having said that, I know that one of the best ways to translate "How cute! Look at these images to see it being used as "cute. When a single word has such a range of meaning — from "a thin woman with graceful movements" to "cute" — it is difficult to get a grasp on when and how it should be used. Further complicating the usage of this word is the fact that its origins aren't certain.
If etymology interests you, Wiktionary provides some interesting details for "lindo," one of which is that the word may derive from Old Spanish for "authentic," "pure," "good. A visit to educalingo will give you more interesting details about this word which may be more commonly used in the Southern Cone esp. It even includes a short paragraph on "Lindo" one of the sons of the Greek god Helios, which you can also find here.
You might want to reserve this word for females, however. Educalingo mentions that the word "lindo" is also the word for an effeminate man who takes care of his appearance too much. As has been mentioned before, "pretty boy" may be a good translation of "chico lindo. Another word I often hear contestants use on 12 Corazones , but one not on your list or in this thread yet is "atractivo," which I think is a very useful all-purpose kind of word that can be applied to many different types of people.
These images give you some good examples of males who fit this description and these are good examples of females who do. Despite the fact that I hear "atractivo" a lot on the show, it doesn't necessarily mean that it is used more than other words. And the words used on the show aren't necessarily the ones audience members would use even though I'm sure they understand them. Findings from the returns of such a search are likely to be comments made about the show. What I found was rather interesting, so I put it together in a chart for you:. I was really surprised to see "bella" at the top of the chart, but it makes sense for the fact that the show is produced in the United States, is based off of a show in Argentina, and most of its contestants come from Latin America, not Spain.
See the answers from Joze and skan for why I found it surprising that "bella" would be so high on the list. There may be other reasons why "bella" resulted in so many hits e. In other words, I believe I was just as likely to find a return for someone named Bella as I was for someone who decided to use that word to describe a person, especially if a video had more than a thousand comments. I was also surprised to see "guapo" so middle of the pack, but after reading through this thread, the fact that "guapa" is just fourth from the bottom now makes a lot of sense.
See Joze's comment on "guapa. I did not take a look at every comment made, but below are a few. In case you don't know, the letter "q" is text shorthand for "que.

How you could say that about a stranger on television, I don't know, but the last comment listed appears to have been made by a native Spanish speaker. I suppose it's possible they know each other personally. Even so, you typically want to use these types of descriptors with some form of "ser," not "estar. Later I decided to run an experiment similar to the one just described, randomly selecting some famous people known for their good looks. This time the only filter selected was one for language — Spanish.
Those results follow:. As you can see, the results for the two male actors I selected are the same in terms of the relative frequency of these words as found on pages with their name. Likewise for "bella.
Here are a couple:. Despite that, I have to admit that for most instances I saw of "bonito," it was describing anything but a person. The website deChile. It provides some other collocations with this word that you may want to be aware of, too, so it is definitely worth checking out.
As for "bonita," based off of Joze's comments about it, I would imagine I'd find far more instances of it describing a person of female gender , than I did with "bonito. You'll notice that the results differ a bit more for the two actresses. Keep in mind that this was not an exact science. I did not inspect each page to see whether or not these words were describing the actress or something else altogether, but even so, I think this provides some insight into word choice.
I also wondered whether or not the fact that Cruz is from Spain made any difference, so I did another experiment using an actress originally from Mexico — Salma Hayek. Just to calibrate this pseudo-experiment even further, I ran these searches with Emma Stone. Interestingly enough, " hermosa " was more likely to appear on pages with her name on them than either "linda" or "bonita"; similar to Cruz and Hayek, "linda" was twice as likely to appear as "guapa.
I also took a closer look at the word "bella" and how it was used. It checked out just fine as an acceptable word to describe a beautiful woman, but it is also used to describe other things such as "a beautiful love story," "a beautiful thing". What an embarrassing situation that was! What sultry weather we're having! What a shameful action!
