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 Least-Obvious Places To Live In Latin America in 2018

Gentlemen!

These days, the majority of the emails I receive (aside from hate mail, of course) have something to do with relocating to Latin America. Students that are wondering where to do a year abroad, retired men who are looking to say adios to the United States, digital nomads who are looking for a good base to settle down for a few months...folks from all kinds of backgrounds who are looking to live south of the border for various reasons.

Usually, they're trying to sort out which city in Latin America would be best for them to live in. Here are some less-obvious answers to that question.

Dating And Meeting Nicaraguan Girls: Advice from an Expat

**This is a guest post from a Canadian living in Nicaragua

Nicaragua isn't a country that most people think of when it comes to girls in Latin America. Many people couldn't locate it on a map and some people don't even know it exists!

But along with low prices and lots of sunshine, Nicaraguan girls are one of the bonuses about living here.

I've been here in Leon for almost two years now and I have loved every minute of it.

And I'm happy to share everything I know with you about the women of this country.

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).

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 Best Place To Get Laid In Central America

I'm back! And I'm here to tell you where to go to get laid in Central America.

I've already told you where a guy should go if he wants to get laid in South America, and where he should go to get laid in Latin America in general, but I've left Central America an untouched mystery.

And that's just not right.
