Latin America consists of 20 countries that span where French, Spanish and Portuguese are spoken. Latin culture is a mix of African, European and Indigenous cultures bundled together in a tropical paradise. Due to its close proximity to the USA, you shouldn’t be surprised that Central and South America is a popular travel spot for black tourists and expats.

Below is our list of the top countries in Latin American where black men can enjoy warm weather, lower cost of living, beautiful women, business opportunities and relax in Latin American paradise.

Brazil is refered to as the “Black Mecca of Latin America” and has the 2nd largest black population in the world.

Brazil consistently gets the most love in the black male travel community. Black men often have life changing experiences when they first visit the country. Many often settle down, get married to a Brazilian woman and start a new life outside the Matrix.

Here’s What You Need Before Traveling to Latin America

Official Passport

You must have a valid passport with at least 6 months until expiration to visit 9 out of the 10 countries if you’re a US citizen (Puerto Rico is the exception). If you need your US passport in a hurry, then I highly recommend using RushMyPassport. They can send you a valid passport in less than 24 hours so you don’t have to cancel your travel plans.

Travel Insurance

Hopefully, your trip goes well but you never know when disaster might strike. Travel insurance is essential in case you get sick, injured or lose your valuables.

WorldNomads is our recommended travel insurance policy provider because they offer 24/7 live emergency assistance and your insurance plan covers trip cancellation fees, medical bills, emergency hospital visits and lost and/or stolen property.
