We do what?

I don't think there's any indigenous Spanish speaking Louisianans left.

Yeah, it also doesn't look like Spain, at all.

But, yeah, similarities with the Caribbean for sure. Cartagena Colombia is another that comes to mind.

It's similar to the Canary Spanish spoken over in the Canary Islands. It is has similarities to Puerto Rican and Cuban Spanish.

I disagree with the statement that "many people in Louisiana speak Louisiana Spanish " . Unless you want to call a handful " many " .

Is there even a handful?
Relative to 4.5m people a handful could be a thousand people.

If I recall most Spanish speakers in New Orleans are recent immigrants from Mexico and/or Honduras. The historic Canary Islander Isleno population only numbered roughly 30,000 at most and for the most part assimilated into the general population.
