Benicio Del Toro Monserrate Rafael Sanchez (born February 19, 1967) is a Puerto Rican actor (Santurce, Puerto Rico, a district of San Juan) of Spanish and Italian ancestry.
Therefore, he is considered white, not mestizo, because he lacks Native Indian (indigenous) ancestry.
In general, the countries believed to have a majority mestizo population today are Colombia, Ecuador, El Salvador, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Guatemala, Paraguay, and Venezuela.In Bolivia and Peru, mestizos form the second largest group.
Mestizos are mostly from Latin America. Geographically and demographically, Puerto Rico is considered part of the Caribbean, not Latin America (though Puerto Rican people are now considered US citizens).
