This is a guest post by Trip 101.
Brazil is the largest country in Latin America and the 5th biggest in the world. Brazil has something for every type of traveller, no matter your budget or trip duration!
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.
There are some truly great movies about South America, Central America and Mexico.
Watching movies is an excellent way to get a feel for the history, culture or atmosphere of a place; I'm always impressed at how a good film...
In this post, I curate over 100 vintage travel posters of Latin America — organized by country — with prints dating from the early 1900s to the 1990s.
Ladies and gentlemen, you won’t want to miss this one!
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.
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!
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.
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.
