I’ve been a member of Latin American Cupid for a little over two years now, before I even put up this site. I’ve communicated with Latinas from Latin America, the US and Europe put have mostly used it to hook up with girls in Latin America.
I have been living or traveling in Latin America off and on since the mid 90s but only started using dating sites in the last couple years. After running into a few guys who said they had good luck with Latin American Cupid I decided to give it a shot.
I’ve been happy with the beauty and the quality of the Latin women who use the site. Where ever you are looking for women you won’t have a problem finding attractive members. I have found they also tend to be more educated and have better jobs probably because these are the type of women who use the internet more often in Latin America. Most have had a good head on their shoulders and are fun to be with. I have yet to meet any nutcases, which is good because I’ve had my share of them in Latin America.
I must mention I haven’t ran into any gold diggers, either. I think this probably has to do with the typical girl using the site being more educated and holding a better job than the average Latina on the street. They seem to have their life together better. I’ve gone out with some that had their own cars (not normal in Latin America) and provided the transportation when we went out. Nice.
Drawbacks? Let’s see… Well, if you expect every girl to look like a runway model you’ll be disappointed. It’s similar to walking down a street in Latin America, some women are knock outs, some are attractive and some aren’t. The other drawback I can think of is if you expect to make a profile and have the most popular, hottest, highest quality Latinas flood you with messages, it ain’t gonna happen. The highest quality women on the site get enough attention from men that they don’t need to go and search for them, so you’ll have to initiate contact with them.
The coolest thing about Latin America Cupid is you can start contacting girls before you travel to Latin America and have them waiting to meet you when you touch down. This is especially handy if you aren’t going to be spending an extended period in the areas you plan to visit.
Since the Latinas on the site tend to be a little more educated than normal you’ll find a decent amount speak English. If you run into any that don’t and you don’t speak Spanish well you can just use an online translator to shoot messages back and forth. The highest grade membership (platinum) has a built in translator.
The site itself is free to sign up but only paying members can send and receive messages with non-paying members. And over 99% of the Latinas are non-paying members. I don’t have a problem with this, I think it’s a fair compromise since we earn more than the typical Latina. And if they had to pay the variety and selection of women on the site would be shot to hell.
My advice is to pay for one month (the shortest paid membership) and if you like it sign up for a year membership and the price per month only comes out to $8 a month. Dirt cheap. That’s what I did and I’ve been happy with it.
You can join Latin American Cupid here. If you join let me know what you think of it.
