What is the meaning of ‘hasta la vista’?

The expression is from Spanish and it means ‘see you later’ or ‘good bye’. ‘Hasta la vista’ became quite popular among native speakers of English thanks to Arnold Schwarzenegger’s blockbuster, ‘Terminator 2: Judgement Day’. In this sequel, Schwarzenegger, who plays a cyborg from the future, keeps saying ‘Hasta la vista baby’.
