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.

Central America has long been a backpacking favourite, but no one talks much about girls in Central America; tragically, they are all too often overshadowed by South Americans, namely Colombian, Brazilian and Argentinian girls.

Due to higher levels of poverty and (arguably) more cultural dissimilarities from North America, girls from Central America are often seen as less approachable than girls from the aforementioned countries. But this isn’t really true. Young girls and guys are virtually the same wherever you go. We’re all just trying to make a connection. And if you step out of your comfort zone and talk to the women of Central America, you’ll find that they’re not so different after all.

I’ve made the following list of the best places to go to get laid in Central America (or to go to just find a nice girl to hang out with… non-sexually). This is entirely based on personal experience; I didn’t take any polls or apply the scientific method.

But I’ll give you some personal statistics:

I’m 6’0 and 180 pounds. Somewhat of an average build — not too skinny, muscular or fat. My Spanish is conversational but I can’t claim fluency. Black hair, Caucasian. Slightly above average-looking in the face (or so I’ve been told). Basically, I look like any white dude walking around the streets of any American city. So if you do too, these results might hold true for you as well.

5) San Pedro Sula, Honduras

No, I’m not trying to get you killed.

That being said, if this is your first rodeo in Central America you may not want to start here in one of the most dangerous cities in Latin America. But is also surprisingly modern in ways: good nightclubs, fast food restaurants and shopping malls are not uncommon. Meeting girls here is tough, but not impossible. University campuses are a good bet – there are a few here – as are upscale nightclubs. You won’t really get anywhere trying to chat girls up on the street during the daytime. I’m not sure if it’s because of a trust factor or a bit of a hate for gringos, but people here can be somewhat standoffish.

I didn’t find the Honduran people quite as friendly as Nicaraguans or Guatemalans.


4) Managua, Nicaragua

Again, I’m not trying to get you shanked, but yes, Managua can be somewhat dangerous. If you are trying to get laid here in Nicaragua, stick around Zona Viva and UCA, the university campus. If you are looking to go out at night, make sure you are sleeping very close. People don’t walk around here at night, nor should they. Richer girls will even have their own drivers who wait for them to get out of the club to get them home safely. This can be a major impediment to trying to take a girl home. For this reason, I air on the side of getting a place close to the university. Use this as your base of operation. Tourists usually GTFO of Managua as fast as they can, so you’ll have somewhat of an exotic factor. For this reason, girls are receptive, especially if you can speak some Spanish. Although, many will know English. Nicaraguan girls are probably the most friendly in Central America, and Managua is a great bet for meeting some!


3) Leon, Nicaragua

This is a university town. Need I really say more? The number of bars and clubs here will certainly play to your advantage. Some people would say that Leon (or Granada) is the easiest place to get laid in Central America. I respectfully disagree. Although it’s not hard to hook-up with a local here, there are a ton of covert prostitutes around which kind of puts a damper on the whole thing. Focus your attention on student bars. Nicaraguan students are, for the most part, very friendly and welcoming towards foreigners as long as you aren’t acting like an arrogant arse. You should be able to find a girl to connect with this way.

Note: Leon is pretty much interchangeable with Granada — the cities are similar in almost every way. I’ve simply chose to include Leon because it’s the bigger of the two cities.


2) San Jose, Costa Rica

San Jose is a cool city, but tourists (not unlike in Managua) usually get the hell out as soon as they can to head to more remote areas or beaches. If you give it a chance, you’ll find that it is one of the best places to meet a girl and get laid in Central America. Costa Rica is somewhat more liberal than many other Central American countries, and the local girls are fun, accustomed to foreigners and culturally similar enough to make a connection with. Just watch out for pros, because San Jose is riddled with them and they’re not always obvious. If you are student-aged, you may want to head to nearby Heredia. It is an amazingly friendly town filled with young university students.


1) Panama City, Panama

Panama City is easily the most cosmopolitan city in the region, and also the easiest place to get laid in Central America. This doesn’t mean that all Panamanian girls are the easiest to bed, but in terms of opportunity, compatibility and not fearing for your safety at night, Panama City is definitely the go-to place. There are many good nightlife spots around Calle Uruguay, and a ton of good restaurants around Calle Argentina (don’t bother much with Casco Viejo…just a bunch of old tourists). There are so many places to meet girls in this city, and many of them will speak English. If it is your first trip in Central America, and you’re not opposed to meeting a girl or two, book a flight to Panama City this instant. 

I hope this helps. As I noted, I’d give an honourable mention to Granada, Nicaragua as a good place to get laid in Central America, but it is so similar to Leon that I decided not to include it on the list.

And remember, folks. This is subjective — it’s not coming from On High. It’s just been my experience.
With that said, I’ll leave you with my goodbye.
