insane, mad; crazy
Loco is one word you can use to refer to someone who is insane:
Al final se volvió loco.
In the end he went mad.
You also use loco more informally in some phrases to mean crazy:
Are you crazy?
Está loco si piensa que lo voy a ayudar.
He must be crazy to think I’m going to help him.
If you’re a great fan of somebody or something, loco is also the word to use, in the phrase volver loco, literally to drive crazy:
El flamenco la vuelve loca.
She’s crazy about flamenco.
