Vintage Travel Posters Of Latin America

Ladies and gentlemen!

I’ve got something real good for you all today.

Real good.

Below is a collection of over 100 vintage travel posters of Latin America — organized by country — with prints dating all the way back to the early 1900s.

These posters – although “colorful” (if not downright stereotypical at times), do a superb job of capturing the magic of the places they advertise.

In a world with high resolution photographs, 4K video and drone footage, it’s rare to see travel destinations promoted with good old fashioned, impressive artwork.

And I must say, it’s refreshing.

So, I invite you to take a trip with me down memory lane to enjoy these fine vintage posters (and a few modern interpretations of vintage posters) of Latin America!

Let’s get it going.

P.S. If you want to buy some of these prints, here’s a link to The Amazon store that sells many of them…for as little as $9.99!

(I’ll link it again at the end of the article).

If you’d like to see one of these fine vintage Latin America travel posters in your home, most of these are available for cheap on Amazon.

And that’s it for me!

Hope you enjoyed.

As always, thanks for stopping by.

Until next time,

Vance

  1. Funny how Cusco/Macchu Picchu and Quechua communities in general make up all of Peru’s tourism ads. It’s no longer 100%, but the needle hasn’t moved much!

    The Pan Am ad for Brazil featuring a dancing woman with headdress is a loose representation of Carmen Miranda, a curious phenom with her stage musical, "South American Way." Not sure how South American the song is, but it captured the imagination of mid-century gringos and made her a Sofia Vergara of sorts (exotic Latina). There’s better video of her singing it on YouTube, but here’s the best audio:
