The 5 Safest Capital Cities In Latin America

No one is ever going to entirely agree on a "safest cities" list.

First of all, it's hard to get a read on these things. Official crime statistics simply can't be trusted in Latin America. I raise my eyebrows in amusement when journalists claim that Mexico City has a lower murder rate than cities like Washington D.C or Boston, erroneously assuming that Mexican law enforcement agencies report murder rates with the same accuracy as American law enforcement agencies.

Second, personal experience tends to color perception.

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...

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 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).

The Hottest Girls In South America By City

I'm here to present you with the list you never knew you needed.

The other day I received an email from a guy saying that my site was a bit tricky to navigate. He suggested that I make a chart out of all of my city guides outlining the hottest girls in South America, Central America and Mexico to make it easier for people to get a quick idea of things. I thought it was a brilliant idea and frankly was a bit sore that I didn't think of it myself.

Below you have the list. What I've done is ranked all of the cities guides that I have on the site (a total of 67 guides) based on the hotness of the women.

If it sounds shallow...it is.

How To Fake Your Tinder Location & Meet Girls From All Over Latin America

I've never been a Tinder enthusiast. 

I don't deny that it's one of the most efficient ways to hookup with women at home and on the road, but I prefer a more organic approach. It must be the romantic in me.

That being said, when I discovered a hack while browsing blogs and forums that allows you to fake your Tinder location and meet girls from any country, city, barrio or favela in Latin America as well as anywhere in the world, I knew I had to give it a try.

The Easiest Country in South America to Get Laid

Welcome to part two of my "easiest places to get laid in Latin America series (part one is here).

Let me just say right off the bat that I hate the term "getting laid." I don't even know if frat boys still use this. But, alas, it's what is giving my pages the most hits so I have to go with it. So forgive me if I come across as a wide-eyed amateur in my terminology.

Alright, now for the serious stuff.
