Latin America is, in part, famous for stunning women such as J Lo (Puerta Rican parents), Shakira (Colombia), Gisele (Brazil) and Salma Hayek (Mexico). Venezuela has won more Miss World competitions than any other country, and with good reason. The local men, on the other hand, are often smarmy, macho and pretty unattractive. As a male traveller, one is therefore at a distinct advantage. But where are the hottest girls in Latin America?
The following is on the whole based upon personal (pretty extensive) experience of travelling and living in various Latin American countries. Sadly I haven’t been absolutely everywhere, but I’m working on that.
Central America, on the whole, is sorely dissapointing, with the exception of Mexico (overall 8/10). Guatemala’s girls come in last with a score of 2, closely followed by Belize at 3. Costa Rica and Panama receive 5, while Cuba receives a mark of 6. The other central American countries I haven’t been to so I won’t pass comment. Mexico’s girls top Central American in terms of the hottest women, but the country as a whole is highly variable in terms of the X factor. Remarkably, Chetumal (the border town with Belize) would top my list.
South America sees a distinct improvement is standards of female attractiveness. Cross the Darien Gap and it all change. Venezuela comes in at 9 out of 10 understandably.

Ecuador sees wide variety, with coastal areas such as Guayaquil seeing the most beautiful, though Quito does have a few stunners. Ecuador’s women get 7 out of 10. Peru’s girls receive 5 out of ten, while Bolivia receives a dissapointing 3. Chile is unknown to me. Argentina receives a 7 out of 10, though the women often exhibit more European, and less Latin, physical characteristics. Antarctica has only penguins and scientists so doesn’t count. Brazil sees huge variety from 0 to 10 - Ipanema beach in Rio would come in at 9 out of 10, but the country as a whole receives 7 out of 10.
Girls in Brazil
I’ve missed one important country out, and that country receives a 10 out of 10. It’s not just because my girlfriend is from that country. Their people on the whole are the friendliest in Latin America. It’s not all about looks after all - attitude counts as well. I think it’s due to a combination of factors including the genes (Spanish / African / Indigenous / Pirate mix), plus the fact the women in this country really care for themselves. Many say that the decades long influence the drugs barons used to hold (NB. used to) over society has spawned a culture where looks really do matter, and plastic surgery is very common. Yes, the country with the hottest women in Latin America is Colombia. And the hottest girls are found in Medellin, as well as the breast enhancement capital of the world, Cali.
