AmoLatina is a Latin dating site that you might come across if you’re interested in seeking a mail order bride from Latin America.
So let’s have a look at this site, and see if it’s worth looking at if you’re seeking a Latin bride.
Although focused on South America and the Caribbean, the ladies on this site are primarily from Colombia, Peru and Brazil.
There are also small numbers of ladies from countries including Honduras, Bolivia and Puerto Rico.
See below for a more comprehensive table of where the AmoLatina ladies are from.

The first thing I notice from these statistics is that there aren’t huge numbers of women on AmoLatina. This is related to the fact that all the profiles are added to the site by agents of AmoLatina rather than the ladies themselves.
As a guy whose own interests in foreign women are chiefly focused on Asian ladies, these numbers also seem quite modest. If you’re ever in the market for a Filipino bride for example, well then you’re going to find tens of thousands of Filipinas on the average Asian dating site, and over 600,000 female profiles on the mighty Filipino Cupid! Chinese dating can also field some impressive numbers, although this is more down to the fact of China having such an incredibly vast population.
Anyway, the main thing about AmoLatina is that there are still plenty of ladies to choose from. Obviously if you’re interested in a Colombian bride then you’ll have the most choice, but Brazil and Peru also offer plenty of opportunities.
The small number of women from major countries like Mexico also reflect the fact that AmoLatina is less active in these countries. So if you like Mexican senoritas then you’re better off on a site like Mexican Cupid.
AmoLatina Latin Ladies
There are a good selection of ladies on the site, and they come in a wide range of shapes and sizes (well these are Latinas we’re talking about).
One thing I’ll point out is that the majority of profiles of the female members contain heavily airbrushed photos. While this makes the site look a lot more polished than, say, Latin American Cupid, it can be seriously misleading if you’re looking for a marriage partner!
Using AmoLatina’s Dating Site
Men can sign up to AmoLatina for free. Ladies sign up via a marriage agency in their own country. Unlike other sites, the ladies can’t sign themselves up to the site.
The good thing is that this should keep the worst of the scammers off the site. Certainly you’re not going to see any of the notorious Senegalese or Nigerian romance scammers on AmoLatina like you can on other sites.
On the downside, AmoLatina is very expensive. This is a letter writing site, and in my own online dating experiences, I soon learned to avoid these like the plague.
Every time you want to write to a lady on AmoLatina, you’ll need to pay with credits. So you’ll see that very quickly it can get quite expensive to use this site.
The main advantage of the letter writing systems are:
- You can send emails to ladies who speak or write no English, and you don’t need to learn a word of Spanish or Portuguese.
- The translator staff should pick up on the warning signs that the lady is trying to scam you.
- It’s a convenient way of meeting foreign ladies (particularly the more mature ones) who aren’t computer literate and/or don’t have access to a computer or smartphone.
Having said this, thanks to improving techology I think these letter writing sites have had their day. Many ladies have computers or iPhones these days, and Internet cafes are widespread from Colombia to Peru.
Online translation tools can help you if you want to find a wife but don’t speak the language of the country whose women you’re interested in. I’ve even chatted to Chinese women online when they speak no English and my written Chinese is basic in the extreme.
I’ll also point out that neither Spanish or Portuguese are particularly difficult for English speakers to learn. In fact, if you’re living in the USA then you might already know a fair bit of Spanish.
Another tip I’ll give you is that English speaking foreign ladies aren’t too hard to find these days. Check out Colombian Cupid and you’ll find thousands of women who can speak and write English. If you’re looking for a younger bride then you’ll also find that anyone under the age of 35 has probably attended English classes in school, so they’ll usually know very basic English.
Anyway, back to AmoLatina. As well as sending letters to girls, you can also send them flowers and gifts. I’m not sure I’m a big fan of this – if you flash your cash then you attract money lookers.
AmoLatina also offer Latin American romance tours. When I last looked at their site they were offering a forthcoming trip to Medellin, Colombia for around $1600. Expensive, but can you put a price on the opportunity to meet dozens of Colombian girls in a single trip?
Alternatives to AmoLatina
So AmoLatina is expensive. The romance tours look interesting, but for pure Latin online dating it’s probably better to look elsewhere.
Latin American Cupid is a great site with oodles of members and some slick search tools. I’ve been a member of its sister sites Chinese Love Links and Japan Cupid, and I’ve met some great girls through these sites. So I can’t recommend Latin American Cupid highly enough.
It’s not hard to find Latin women on singles sites, and you don’t even need to pay for the privilege of chatting to them! Latin Love Search is totally free. And there’s also PoF – the World’s largest free dating site. I found 317 Colombian girls between the ages of 18 and 25 on this site. Hmm, I found many leggy beauties on this site, and it’s all completely free to send them messages.
Anyway, those are my thoughts on AmoLatina. If you’ve had any good or bad experiences of using the AmoLatina Latin dating site, then leave your comments below (anonymously if you wish).
