In Colombia, as well as Ecuador and Panama, a lambón is more of a bootlicker, suck-up, or sycophant. Someone who brown-noses to a boss or a politician might be called their lambón.

Lambón (and lambona) is found throughout the Latin American Spanish-speaking world, including Mexico, Colombia, and Caribbean nations like the Dominican Republic. It’s also used by Spanish-speakers in the US, often mixed in with English.
