But wait, what exactly is a Spanish riddle? A Spanish riddle can be a question, a phrase, or a statement. Regardless of its form, it will always have a hidden or double meaning and it will be presented as a puzzle to be solved. Riddles most frequently fall into two categories: enigmas and conundra. An enigma is usually expressed in metaphorical or allegorical language that requires astute thinking ingenuity to solve. Conundra are questions which utilize a pun in either the question, the answer, or both.
