I don't understand where cuidate comes from or the meaning of this phrase.

Hi - it sounds to me like something someone would say at the end of a conversation, so you don't have to worry about the "bueno". Cuidate is the imperative form of "cuidarse" - to take care of yourself, and "mucho" here is adverbial. So, the phrase as a whole means: "Ok then, take good care of yourself!". Hope this helps.

  • Shouldn´t it be "cuídate" to maintain the stress on the "i". - Eddy Nov 2, 2009 flag

"bueno cuidate mucho" means "well, take much/good care". In english we wouldn't say 'good' care, so it's like saying "Ok, take care"

"Bueno, cuidate mucho" means: "well, take good care of yourself", not literally, of course, because "mucho" means "much" and you would never say: "Well, take much care of yourself", right?
