    If we are talking about weekend in the sense of Saturday and Sunday, then yes but in English the word weekend can have a more broad meaning in which case you use different words in Spanish.

    Wordreference is a great website for these sort of things.

    In Spain I don't think there's another way to refer to weekend in the sense of Saturday and Sunday.

      That's good. I was getting worried for a minute, thinking, "Oh wow. Did I miss this cultural phenomenon? Is there another?"

      Katy to the rescue---again.
