La Leyenda del Chupacabras

This third season of Simple Stories in Spanish is focusing on legends. Few Hispanic legends have spread as far as the rather recently discovered “chupacabras. Formed from the words “chupa”, meaning “sucks” and “cabras”, meaning goats, this legendary creature sucks the blood of animals and leaves their corpses behind. I hope you enjoy today’s overview of the legend of “el chupacabras”. This legend is told in the past tense. Repeated words and phrases include “chupa” (sucks), “sangre” (blood), “heridas” (wounds), “monstruo” (monster), “reptil” (reptile), “patas” (legs, paws), and “vacas” (cows). No matter where you are in your language journey, stories will help you on your way. You can find a transcript of the story and read along at Happy listening! ¡Muchas gracias por escuchar! I began this podcast one year ago and it has grown bigger than I ever expected. I hope to continue to provide simple, comprehensible stories in Spanish in the coming year. If you would like to help me in that endeavor, consider buying me a coffee at
