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.

The Best Cigars From Latin America/My Experience As An International Smuggler

Now for something a bit different.

Not many people know this about me, but I used to work as a cigar salesman.

Well, I was actually more of an 'exporter.' It was my job to find a way to ship Cuban cigars to the United States from Canada without them getting seized by customs.

I must say, I was very good at it. One year and thousands of shipments. Nothing ever got caught.

More on that later.

Through my experience, I was able to learn a thing or two about cigars and lucky enough to try a multitude of varieties from different countries.

Here are some of my favourites.

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.
