The 6 Best Places To Find A Wife In Latin America

Back again, folks!

Today I’ll be talking about the best places to find a wife in Latin America…or at the very least, a serious girlfriend.

You see, as much as I like hooking up with and casually dating Latinas, I acknowledge that I’m getting a bit older and more mature (relatively, at least). And, as I’m sure many of you know, after reaching a certain number of notches, the whole chasing women just for the sake of it tends to turn to ash in your mouth.

With that in mind…

Florianopolis, Brazil – City Guide for Nomads and Expats

This may just be the best city in Brazil for everything aside from cost of living and hooking-up. Florianopolis is a mid-sized city located in the south of Brazil. It is known for having the best standard of living in the country and for being one of the most popular cities in the world for foreign real estate buyers.

Belo Horizonte, Brazil – City Guide for Nomads and Expats

The city proper of Belo Horizonte is the sixth-largest in Brazil. It is a well-planned city with many parks and museums, but is often ignored by tourists because of its distance from Rio, and the fact that it’s not on a beach. It has tons of bars and clubs, and many consider it to be “the bar capital of Brazil.”

Sao Paulo, Brazil – City Guide for Nomads and Expats

The largest and most “Americanized” city in Brazil. It is hard to comprehend the vastness of this city; the photo shown here doesn’t even begin to do it justice. It is the hub of all economic activity in Brazil, aside from tourism.

Natal, Brazil – City Guide for Nomads and Expats

A city in northeastern Brazil that is a popular destination for Brazilian tourists, but is still neglected by most non-South American foreigner travellers. Although, this is changing rapidly. It has great beaches, plenty of natural beauty and is relatively safe. It’s a very tranquil and is liveable city for folks who are overwhelmed by the size of Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo.

Rio de Janeiro – City Guide for Nomads and Expats

Rio de Janeiro. The place we’d all rather be. The second largest city in Brazil, and the third largest in South America. Rio is known for its beautiful beaches and beautiful women, as well as for being the host of the 2014 FIFA World Cup and 2016 Summer Olympics. Do some pushups before you get here, because most everyone on Copacabana looks like Greek Gods.

Recife, Brazil – City Guide for Nomads and Expats

Best to get this out of the way first: Recife is one of the most dangerous cities in Brazil. You need to have street smarts here, but more on that in the safety section. Recife is the largest city in the northeast region of Brazil, and is the most important commercial centre in the region.

Fortaleza, Brazil – City Guide for Nomads and Expats

A huge city in the state of Ceara. Along with Recife and Salvador, Fortaleza is one of the major economic hubs of northeastern Brazil. Although it is a vibrant, modern and historically rich city, outside of Brazil, Fortaleza has the unfortunate reputation of being a sex-tourism destination.

Salvador, Brazil – City Guide for Nomads and Expats

In Walt Disney’s 1945 animated film The Three Caballeros, José Carioca, a cigar-smoking parrot, famously asks Donald Duck if he’s “ever been to Bahia.” Donald replies that he hasn’t, and proceeds to get a bashing from Jose for having not done so. You’ll deserve the same verbal abuse if you decide to leave Salvador, Bahia off your travel itinerary.
