Latin

For a lot of people, the allure of a Latino or Latina can be hard to ignore.

Due to the closeness of several Latin countries, the United States tends to have a fascination with these cultures, which of course ends up working its way into our dating preferences. And it’s not just Americans, with many European countries looking for Latin love across the pond.

But just like any situation that involves meeting strangers for dates, it’s not easy to do without a bit of help. Add a language barrier and the natural fears associated with meeting possible new romantic partners, and you’ve got yourself a genuine dilemma.

This is why we’ve put together the list below, in the hopes that at least one of these companies might help you find the type of Latin lover you crave. So what are you waiting for, get to reading!

1) Latinamericancupid.com

Our first site is Latin American Cupid, a website that’s been running strong for over 15 years. They claim to have a user base of over one million people, which is incredibly impressive seeing as they cater to a specific niche of people, namely Latinos & those who find them attractive. When we checked into their metrics, turns out that these numbers have more than doubled, with their most recent monthly numbers hitting almost three million total visits.

Joining is easy as cake, with Latin American Cupid using your Facebook profile to fill in most parts of your profile right away. Photo approval takes a bit longer, with most photos being online within 12 hours or so.

Site design is well done, with all pertinent information easily found & visible. They also keep the site clear of popups, which really makes for a much smoother experience.

New users should also keep in mind that while the site is technically free, so-called “standard” users are only allowed to message premium members, and are barred from messaging other free users unless they pay for at least a trial membership.

The site’s membership tends to be roughly 50% white males, so if you have an ethnic background, keep that in mind while signing up. That being said, Latin American Cupid is a powerhouse and a real contender for anyone trying to find Latin love.

2) Amolatina.com

Next, on our list, today is Amo Latina, a site that has its sights set on finding American & Europen men Latina wives. While not a site for “mail-order brides,” Amo Latina does certainly make it plain that their services are intended to find long-term connections across continental boundaries.

The service itself depends on a credit system, which means that in lieu of membership, members purchase credits to be able to open up specific site features like messaging, video chats, etc. What’s also frustrating for some people is that, thanks to the International Marriage Broker Regulation Act, agencies such as Amo Latina are forbidden from helping members transfer personal information, save for physical addresses. This is to ensure that all participants are in full control of what data they share with their potential new matches, and it must be said that Amo Latina offers gift services, operator boards, and many other ways to still be able to charm the woman of your dreams from afar.

Our recommendation would be to stick with video chats, as there’s a far greater likelihood that these women are legitimately interested in you.

3) Amigos.com

Amigos has been operating for quite a few years in Spain, and promotes its services in Spanish, Portuguese, and English, meaning that it’s perfect for those who may be shy about trying to meet native Spanish speakers.

Signing up takes just a few minutes, after which you’ll be free to start using the site’s services. The free membership offers quite a bit in the way of functionality, with chat, instant messaging, and profile browsing being instantly available. All of these functions are also made available on their mobile app for both iOS and Android.

If you do decide to upgrade, you’re able to choose from Gold or Silver memberships, which offers additional live streams, webcam feeds, extended photo albums, priority messaging, and a lot more. Premium guests include access to their matchmaking engine, which uses a set of proprietary algorithms to select members that might be a better fit than just the folks you happen to stumble across as you browse. Keep in mind that this matchmaking service really doesn’t work unless you take the time to fully answer all of the profile & lifestyle questions asked in your extended member section.

All in all, Amigos is a great option for those who would like something a little more serious than its peers. The site’s focus on proper translation services really put it ahead of some of these other border-crossing apps.

4) Amor.com

Our last site today is Amor, a dating site that caters specifically to Hispanics across the world. Many Spanish-speaking individuals claim that this has been their preferred site when trying to find other fluent speakers who share similar cultural & romantic ideas.

Signup is pretty straightforward, asking questions about ethnicity, race, marital status, and other typical questions, after which you’ll be able to start browsing through profiles. The offerings here tend to be fairly standard once again, with the ability to email & message members, along with a “wink”-like function that works much like other “flirt” features.

A novel component of Amor’s offerings is its toolbar add-on for members, which alerts you whenever you’ve received a new message or some attention on your profile. Something else we liked about the site was its ability to save up to ten unique profile searches, meaning that you’ll get pinged anytime new members show up in your area that meets your criteria.

While not the flashiest site on this list, Amor offers a solid, reliable product for Spanish-speaking singles. With its over two million users worldwide, it’s the perfect app for those looking to find love that comes with a sense of familiarity.
