Great news! I’m here to answer that question in detail.

But first…

50 Good Books About Mexico, Central and South America

What originally drove me to live in Latin America wasn't the sex, sun and salsa. Rather, it was a fascination with the politics, culture and society in this part of the world.

My interest started in university with a socioeconomics course. Insufferable Marxist indoctrination aside, it was an engaging class and responsible for igniting my enthusiasm for Latin America. I probably never would have bothered to take the jump to live in LATAM if I hadn't taken the class.

Credit where credit's due.

My Latin Life's Guide To E-Commerce In Latin America

My latest of many money-making schemes has been in the world of e-commerce. 

I started playing around with it during my last trip to Peru. Appeared the country was ripe for it. Its economy was growing rapidly, and I certainly noticed people with disposal income in Lima, but there was a lack of cool shit to buy - many of the big chain American stores that I saw in Mexico that offered impossibly cheap goods hadn't made their way down, and I knew that import laws were pretty lax compared to countries like Argentina or Ecuador, and manufacturing costs were lower than countries like Chile or Brazil...

When I say “Brazilian women”, what comes to your mind?

Big ass; great body, right?

But for those of us who know a little bit more about Brazilian women, the first thing that comes to our mind is passion.

So, You Want To Date Brazilian Women?

A night I'll never forget. My first humiliating experience with Brazilian women.

I'd arrived to Rio de Janeiro earlier that day, and I'll admit, I was intimidated. I barely spoke Spanish, let alone Portuguese, and I'd heard horror stories about violence and crime.

I had completely psyched myself out…

My Latin Life here to give you some insight into the cost of living in major cities throughout Latin America.

Using Expatistan, I've compared the cost of living between the most-searched-for big cities on my website to help you decide where to live or travel in Latin America.

Let the showdown begin!

What Does It Cost To Fly Between Major Latin American Cities?

Toward the end of my first jaunt around Latin America, my money started to run out.

I'll admit it: I planned poorly.

I don't want this to happen to you.

Below, I've made screenshots of typical flight prices between major Latin American cities. Keep in mind that these prices will vary depending on the strength of the dollar and the time of year, but it should still provide you with some context for planning your next trip.

My Favorite Cities To Meet Girls In Brazil

If you follow the site, you may have noticed I don't write much on girls in Brazil. Or, Brazil in general for that matter.

This isn't because I didn't like it - quite the contrary, I thought it was an incredible country and culture.

The truth is that…

The Best Cities To Travel To In Latin America - 2018 Edition

Times have changed. Latin America has changed. I've changed.

Cities in Central and South America have a tendency to go through ebbs and flows. A great city to live in today might not be a great one tomorrow.

Take Medellin for instance. In the early 2000s, this was the place to live in Latin America. If you were brave enough to venture down to recently drug-war torn Colombia, as one of the few foreigners, beautiful women would be throwing themselves at you as you enjoyed an incredibly low cost of living and year-round spring temperatures.

And then word got out.

The Best Places In Latin America To Find A Wife

Back again, folks!

Today I'll be talking about the best places to find a wife in Latin America...or at the very least, a serious girlfriend.

You see, as much as I like hooking up with and casually dating Latinas, I acknowledge that I'm getting a bit older and more mature (relatively, at least). And, as I'm sure many of you know, after reaching a certain number of notches, the whole chasing women just for the sake of it tends to turn to ash in your mouth.

With that in mind...

Part 1 - How To Start An E-Commerce Business In Latin America

If you want to reside south of the border, you'll need to find a way to make money. An e-commerce business in Latin America is one of the ways to do this.

However, it's often overlooked.

The vast majority of foreigners down here will make their living doing one of the following things:

DADA ROOM: The Best Way To Rent A Room In Latin America

One of the biggest hurdles of living in Latin America is finding good accommodation.

Most travellers opt for Airbnb - after all, it's one of the most convenient ways to find a short/long term rental in almost any Central or South American city, and its terms and services protect both owner and tenant from any unexpected issues that may arise.

But, unfortunately, it's not the cheapest option. Airbnb rentals are usually...

Book Review: Become The Man Brazilian Women Want: The Official Guide to Dating in Brazil by Rio in a Week

I came across the blog Rio in a Week a few months back.

It has since become my go-to resource for all things Brazil. Although there are other quality blogs about the country (Brazilian Gringo perhaps being the most famous), what sets "Rio in a Week" apart is Shad's willingness to tell it like it is. He doesn't sugarcoat Brazil - it's clear that his love for the place hasn't clouded his perception of reality. Also, he's not bounded by political correctness. He has no problem discussing race, sex and women. A lot of bloggers steer clear of these things to appeal to a wider audience.

My respect goes out to him for not pandering.

For these reasons I consider it to be the best blog for men unfamiliar with Brazil.

That being said, when I heard that he released a book called Become The Man Brazilian Women Want: The Official Guide to Dating in Brazil I was skeptical. 

How To Get An STD Test In Latin America

Initially, I thought that a blog article about getting a dick analysis in Latin America was beneath me.

However, after reviewing my posts (which include How To Fake Your Tinder Location and The Easiest Country To Get Laid In South America), I realized that nothing is beneath me.

But, all joking aside, sexual health is a critical issue, and if even one person benefits from advice on how to get an STD test in Latin America this will have been worth my time.

Having travelled extensively around Latin America and having had more than a few…indiscretions, I’m somewhat of an old hand at getting STD tests – I’ve ordered them three times in Mexico alone.

 

Here’s my latest tale:

My Latin Life's Best Cities In Latin America

I've compiled a list of what I believe to be the best cities for a tourist to visit in Latin America. The list is based on the criteria outlined on my cities guides, so you'll want to click on the link to the city to get a thoroughgoing breakdown on the destination to find out why it ranked the way it did.

I rank each city based on the following:

The Best Places To Hook-Up In South America By City

I'm quite a big fan of lists.

For your pleasure, I've gone and made a list, by city, of the best places to hook-up in South America (read: Latin America, but 'South America' gets more hits in Google).

Please don't take this as gospel - everyone's experience will be different. Whereas I might do better in Colombia and the Dominican Republic, you might do better in Brazil and Mexico. Someone else might do better in Chile and Argentina (although, it's difficult to imagine).
