When it comes to online dating in Latin America, there really aren't too many options.
Many dating apps that are gaining popularity in the United States (Coffee Meets Bagel, Hinge, Bumble) haven't made there way down here yet. Who knows if they ever will.
For men wanting to meet women online in Latin America, that leaves two main services: Tinder and Latin American Cupid.
I'm assuming most of the people reading this have heard of Tinder, or perhaps even used it.
Less of you have heard of Latin American Cupid.
But, since my blog focuses predominantly on women and Latin America, a review of a dating app that involves both is something my readers ought to know. So, here is my in-depth review of Latin American Cupid.
Visas are a pain in the ass.
Fees, restrictions and local bureaucracy can make planning a headache. If you're not prepared, you may end up paying more than you have to, find yourself in trouble with local authorities or even being barred from the country.
The good news is that Latin America isn't as harsh as some regions when it comes to allowing Americans to stay for extended periods of time.
That being said, there are many nuances that you MUST be aware of being heading south, especially if your plan is to stay longterm.
Morris, A fellow Canadian, has just finished up a stint in El Salvador and was kind enough to draw up a city guide. As he mentions, there are very few tourists here, so if you're looking for a departure from the gringo trail, San Salvador might just be the place for you. I for one hope to make a trip there in the near future.
Here's the link to the guide: San Salvador City Guide.
