Lima, Peru: First Impressions, A Few Doubts

As those of you that read my last post will know, I'm now in Lima.

Well, I've been here almost two weeks now and to be honest I'm having a few doubts as to whether or not I made the right choice.

"First Impressions" isn't quite an accurate title - this is actually my third time visiting Lima - but the other two stints I did here were short, and I was mostly focused on eating ceviche, getting smashed on pisco and trying to get pussy (noble pursuits, I know). I stuck exclusively to two neighbourhoods, Barranco and Miraflores, and didn't even really take the time to do currency conversions to determine what anything costs. In short, I really just skimmed the surface.

But now that I've got a bit of a feel for the place, I'm beginning to wonder if I really want to commit to several months here. Perhaps my two previous times here on 'vacation mode' have given me an inflated impression of how good Lima is.

Here's why.

What You Need To Know About Picking Up Girls In Costa Rica

*This is a guest post from an American living in Central America


Although Costa Rica is not At the top of the list for places to pick up girls in Central America, I have grown particularly fond of this paradise after moving to Nicaragua and getting acquainted with the talent south of the border on my visa runs.  Having to leave the country to get your passport stamped isn’t so bad when you combine it with a mission to find some different pussy.  Nothing against Nicaraguan girls - they can be very beautiful.  However in Nicaragua there isn’t a huge variety of girls to choose from, just the leftovers that weren’t fortunate enough to make it out of the country. 

The Past, Present and Future Of My Latin Life

First off, Happy New Year!

With 2017 just kicking off and having just arrived to a new country (scroll to the bottom to find out where), I wanted to take some time to talk about my future plans. I've been doing some soul-searching during these last few months in Canada, and I've come to a few conclusions and made a few decisions. In short, I'm hoping 2017 will be the start of a new trajectory. 

But, we can't know where we're going without thinking about where we've been. And since I don't talk about myself much on this blog, here's some of the things that happened to me in 2016.

The 12 Sexiest Latin American Weather Girls


After a bit of a hiatus, I'm back to writing. Looking forward to chatting with ya'll again. 

The reason for my absence is that I've been in Canada. I was contracted to do a bit of work here and I've been spending most of my time on that, hanging with family and tying up some loose ends here in my home country.

But, I'm happy to announce that next week I'll be off once again to Latin America! Where exactly? You'll have to stay tuned to find out.

What I can tell you is that you can expect much more content from My Latin Life in 2017.

I thought it'd be good to kick things off again with a post that's easy on the eyes - something that even the illiterates among us can enjoy.

Here are the 12 Sexiest Latin American Weather Girls:

Location Review: Is Mexico City Worth Visiting?

*This post was originally published on Single Man's Paradise

Hello again.

Vance here to give you a short and sweet introduction to one of my favourite Latin American cities. As the capital of Mexico and one of the biggest metropolitan areas in the world (the urban population exceeds 20 million), there is obviously plenty to see and do here.

This comes with both positives and negatives. The good news is that you’re not likely to be bored. The bad news is that the city can seem intimidating and incomprehensible for visitors more accustomed to smaller places – I lived here for a year and still can't claim to have scratched the surface of all the city has to offer. 

How To Have Sex With Mexican Girls in 10 Easy Steps

When it comes to Latinas, Mexican girls are often neglected. Ask any man where the sexiest Latin women come from, and he will undoubtedly say “Colombia” or “Brazil.”

And, while there’s no denying that women from these countries are stunning, Mexican girls can definitely hold their own.

That, accompanied by the fact that it’s only a few hours flight from most major American cities, makes Mexico one of the best (and underrated) countries for men who are interested in Latinas.

With that in mind, here is our 10-step guide on how to have sex with Mexican girls. These simple tips should help you navigate the cultural barriers and have you sleeping with beautiful Mexican chicas in no time whatsoever.

5 Helpful Tips For Dealing With Extreme Leftist Backpackers in Latin America

I don't really care about politics.

Aside from a few recent incendiary Twitter comments (usually for laughs), politics occupy very little space in my mind. As far as I'm concerned, as long as you are not posing a threat to me or those I care about, you are free to believe what you like.

That being said. . .

There is a group of people - often well-represented in hostels throughout Latin America - whose political views I find insufferable.

They can usually be identified by one or more of the following characteristics:

How A Complete Idiot (Me) Learned Conversational Spanish and How You Can Too

I remember the precise moment when my inability to learn Spanish became unacceptable.

I had just checked into a hostel in the industrial city of San Lois Potosi, Mexico and was settling into my dorm room, when another guest came in to welcome me. He was about 30 years old, dressed in a scout's uniform and carrying a SpongeBob SquarePants knapsack.

It was evident that he was mentally handicapped. I was somewhat annoyed, not because he was handicapped of course, but because I thought I had the entire dorm room to myself.
