Yes… when I was talking informally with girls they switched to english many times, although I am more confortable in spanish than in english… I have lived in Spain and speak very well the language.

Don’t look latino you mean a white of no fully iberian heritage? If is it, yes I am my self white mixed of some europeans nationalities. In Europe many times people guessed I was american more because I am 190 cm tall and muscular.

For a simple phonetic reason: in Spanish vowels are all open, in Portuguese [Brazilian] many variants are more sinuous, more curvilinear.
Spanish has many words out of use in Portuguese or used only in pretty formal but an educated portuguese speaker can understand it, that is the point.
But Spanish is spoken very fast if the speaker doesn't speak slowly to help the Brazilian the Italian language is easier to understand for us.

In the Cibao region of DR some Portuguese settled claiming they were Spanish, and also many Portuguese settled in Canary Islands and many generations later moved to DR. Many Dominicans from the region have more cousins in Portugal than in Spain. Also, the Spanish that is spoken in the region, especially in the countryside, some words sound more Portuguese.

Its very old, but the evidence is there in the people and language. For a time la portuguesa became the preferred coin in the north instead of the Spanish royal coins.

In Peru, Bolivia and in lots of other South American countries cholo has the same definition as friend, pal, darling, lover.

Similar claims in Mexico and other Hispanic countries. However, they are often poorly documented, questionable, fueled by the tendency to inflate European ancestry.

There is documentation of Portuguese settling in Mexico particularly about 1600(mostly east of Mexico City). I've got quite a few DNA matches in Mexico, and Puerto Rico less in the other countries but none in the Dominican Republic. I've seen documentation of it there is a good estimate of about 11,000 including the descendants in Mexico at the end of the Iberian Union about 1640 the Spaniards became paranoid of them in Mexico. There are some individuals also recorded Alberto Vieira do Canto who founded Saltillo Mexico he was from the an important family from Guimaraes who had settled on Terceira island he had an affair with the wife of Diego de Montemayor the founder of Monterrey Mexico and sadly Montemayor put a sword through her because of it latter on he took her daughter as a wife.
