The origin of the word guayar in Central American semantic contexts is not clear. However, it is presumed that it comes from “guay” which means “very good”. From this perspective, it would be a positive way to signify dogging as a good thing.


 The origin of this use is onomatopoeic , that is, it arises from the sound of crying “cool, llay”. The only thing that is done to determine it as an action is to put an infinitive ending characteristic of verbs.


The word “guayar” can be found in many songs with rhythms such as merengue , reggaeton, trap and the like. In addition, it can be found conjugated in different ways, namely, as guayando, guaya, guayar, among others.

“Guaya Guaya” is a song by the Puerto Rican artist known as “Don Omar“. This song was released in 2015 as part of the album titled “The Last Don II”.
