Over the past 7 years of traveling in Latin America, I've slayed and dated girls from nearly every country from Mexico to Patagonia using LatinAmericanCupid. As the years go by and I become less interested in collecting notches and more interested in having mini-relationships, I've been thinking about where to focus my energies for finding the perfect Latin American girlfriend.
This article is for guys who are traveling to Latin America looking for something more. Guys who are tired of swiping Tinder and having the same first date over and over. Latinas are hot, but which ones would make great girlfriends? What makes a girl hot in bed does not make her a good girlfriend.
This is not an article about which Latin country has the thickest girls, the best boobs, etc. Masculine Profile has covered those in detail on this blog. While looks do matter, I don't want my future daughters to look like Miss Piggy, they are lower down the scale than other characteristics I value in a long-term partner.
For the sake of argument, let's agree that we are looking for qualities such as loyalty, trustworthiness, a sweet nature, traditional family values, etc.
Below is the lowdown on four regions of Latin America - Mexico & Central America, The Caribbean, The Andean Region and The Southern Cone. I have more experience dating some nationalities than others and that will be reflected in the detail I go into here.
Mexico & Central America
Mexican girls are traditional and like the idea of settling down with a foreigner and starting a family. Young Mexican girls are raised to look for a serious boyfriend and Mexico does not have the hookup culture that countries like the Dominican Republic does.
The trick in Mexico is finding a great looking girl – the obesity epidemic and Amerindian genes are not to every guy’s taste. You will have to look in the upper-strata of Mexican society to find girls with more Spanish blood but this is hard to break into. Having a girlfriend from the upper class is more about social status and joining two powerful families together.
Mexican girls are great girls to consider for a serious relationship, but they’re still good for banging.
Girls in Panama usually have a good level of English. This is important if you want her to come live with you in the US, meet your parents and not make Thanksgiving awkward. The girls here are okay, but nothing to write home about.
Costa Rica Ticas can make great girlfriends because they are not slutty and prefer a boyfriend over a fuck buddy. This is bad if you want to get laid a lot in Costa Rica but good if you want a loyal girlfriend.
However, sleeping with them is still definitely pretty easy. My favorite tool to get laid isn this country is Latin American Cupid.
If you are an older guy looking to settle down with a young hot girl, you should visit Nicaragua. The older guy – younger girl age gap is irrelevant and you have a good chance of finding a simple girl who wants a better life away from Nicaragua. However, lots of the girls there are dirt poor so (like in the Dominican) they will be asking you to buy them shit.
In general, Central America is hit-and-miss both for getting laid and finding a Latin girlfriend.
Note: I haven't mentioned El Salvador and Honduras because they are both too dangerous and I wouldn't recommend any guy visit. But hey, at least the girls will be traditional and willing to get out of those shitholes to live in your country.
The Dominican Republic
Dominican women make bad girlfriends because any hot girl will go to the highest bidder. Dominicanas don't see anything wrong with banging and being financed by a foreign guy while saying that they love their Dominican guy from their barrio at the same time. Not only that, Dominican girls can be high maintenance, meaning (at the low end) you'll have to take them out regularly for dates and day trips or pay her bills (at the higher end).
I guess you have to decide whether you want an "independent" anglo woman or a Dominican woman who is 100% dependent on you for everything. Click here to meet some Dominican Women.
Cuban girls rank low on the girlfriend scale because, as a foreign man, it’s hard to meet a local girl who isn’t a prostitute. If you can find a local girl you like, who does not do pay-for-play, get her out of the country as soon as possible (she’ll be glad to leave).
Alternatively, you can look around Miami – you’ll find some super hot ones there. They’re not gold diggers and won’t just use you to get out of the country (they’re already out!) so you can meet some quality Cuban women here. I love using Caribbean Media to meet Cuban girls.
Colombians can be good girlfriends because they like to look after their man - they'll cook for you and never deny you sex. Colombian women make an effort to look good for their man and an age gap matters little in that country so you can get a hot girlfriend 15-20 years younger than yourself.
But they are not the most trustworthy and they know how to manipulate men to get what they want. Their smoking hot bods make it hard to resist.
Colombian women are also excellent at making men feel good (both in and out of the sack) so you always suspect they’ve had plenty of practice. You can meet tons of hot Colombian women that are DTF here.
The tough thing about finding a Peruvian girlfriend is that the hot ones in Lima will generally be party girls and the ones outside of Lima will be fugly. I would forget about looking for a girlfriend in Cusco as it's the Las Vegas of Peru - people go there to get away and hook up. The challenge with a Lima girlfriend will be keeping her away from all the gringos in Miraflores.
The only saving grace that Peruvian girls have is that they seem very willing to adapt to western culture. You will have a high chance of finding one that you can relate to on an emotional and conversational level.
Ecuador & Bolivia
I would avoid looking in Ecuador and Bolivia because of the looks factor that Masculine Profiles has mentioned in the past. Ecuadorian girls are better looking the Bolivian ones but because good-looking Ecuadorian women are so rare, they have been put on a pedestal since childhood. This can often make them demanding and entitled.
I don't have an informed opinion on whether they make good girlfriends because I haven't considered them for anything besides a pump and dump.
Many Chilean girls have become more westernized and, again, finding a good-looking one can be just as difficult as in Peru. The tolerated age gap will be smaller in Chile and they often become sloppy with their appearance when in a long-term relationship.
Argentina and Uruguay
These women are the whitest in Latin America, both in looks and personality. I often find it hard to distinguish between an Italian/Spanish girl and an Argentine one. With similar levels of drama and histrionics, I'd rather live in Europe and put up with the same bullshit from local girls. The age gap will matter in both Argentina and Uruguay more than in Brazil or Colombia. Fashion and beauty are a priority in these two countries so your girlfriend will look after herself over the course of your relationship.
Brazilian women make good girlfriends and...they are hot. Brazilian women take care of themselves; it's a fitness and beach culture. A Brazilian girlfriend will make an effort to look good for her man and an age gap won't matter much to her.
Now while Brazil may seem like a fuck-fest from the outside (getting a tongue-down at the club is easy), hooking up for a one-night stand is tough so you don’t have to worry much about your Brazilian princess being promiscuous. However, if you are looking to get some easy Brazilian action then check out Brazilian Cupid.
Also, from dozens of Brazilian girls I've met all around the world over the years, it seems they are willing to travel and relocate - if you are thinking of marrying one and bringing her back to your country.
Love or Lust?
Generally speaking, the poorer countries in and around the Caribbean have a more relaxed attitude to sex and will have more of a hook up culture - see Venezuela, Colombia, and The Dominican Republic. The wealthier countries like Mexico, Argentina, Chile will have more career minded women that make better girlfriends.
Over the years I've met plenty of western guys who have settled down with a Latina. I've met them living in Mexico, the US and the UK. Latinas make great mothers and if you are comfortable settling in to their culture (learn Spanish) you'll have it good. It certainly beats dating an entitled Anglo girl.
But remember, it's not as easy as just turning up and landing a good quality girl. Yes you can get plenty of lays (go to Peru) but finding the "one" is much tougher.
You won't find her on Tinder or at Gringo Tuesday.
Rankings: Who is the Best?
Here is El Conqistador's summing up the Latin American regions for girls:
1. Mexico & Brazil - Best for girlfriends
2. Southern Cone - 2nd best
3. Caribbean - Best for hot girls and good times
4. Central America & Andean - Best to avoid
P.S. Paraguay and Venezuela could be good but Masculine Profiles and I haven't been there yet. Next year amigos. We'll report back.
