Subject: hispanic or latin-american national nicknames

Can those of you who know for sure help me with Latin American national nicknames? No reason but personal edification. I live in NYC, and cultural grease eases the wheel.

The obvious two are:
Boriqua- Puerto Rican
Perucho/a- Peruvian

I was a told by a former native that 'Dico' (likely mispelled?) is used by Costa Ricans, but no one else has ever verified this.

Anything provided would be appreciated greatly.
