    Spanish to English?
    precioso? -

    Precioso = precious (usually in the cute/pretty kind of way)
    Caliente = hot/heated or sexually excited.
    Gricco... I'm not sure on this one, but I'm also not familiar with Cuban slang. Are you sure you didn't hear gringo? That's a term for an American and can be either positive, negative, or neutral depending on how it is used.

    My little princess = mi princesita, mi princesa pequeña , mi princesa chiquitina

    Thank you...

    I am pretty sure the grecco - was some sort of slang for wonderful/great? Not too sure. Is there a word for WOW?

    Is precisio spelled correctly?

    I think that 'gricco' is 'rico'. A word commonly used to describe anything that's good, not only someone who's wealthy. The strong pronunciation of the 'r' made it sound like 'gr' to your ears.
