The Perfect Trip Is Possible, So Here Are 5 Reasons You Should Pick Latin America For Your Next Vacation

The costs are going to be more than affordable.


I love to travel. I think all of us we must fly somewhere else every year. Visiting new places is an invaluable experience; we grow up every time we get a flight and discover new places. Also, I know sometimes we do not have the time or the money to travel. We are at the beginning of the year, and we have enough time to plan a trip.

Most of the time when we plan our next trip we think about the most famous destinations such as France, England or Italy. Of course, they are lovely places, but they are not the only ones. Today, I have a suggestion for you: Latin America. We are talking about over twenty beautiful countries full of beautiful places and many different cultures.

Here are my five reasons to travel to Latin America.

1. It is affordable.


Flighting to any country in Latin America is not expensive at all. There are many options and the cost of the flight depends on where you are living. In general, the average plane ticket cost is between $200 to $450. Again, you need to research, to check the best time to travel and what it is the best airport to take off from.

On the trip to Latin America, the costs are going to be more than affordable. Usually, hotels, food, and transportation are cheap in LATAM. There are expensive places, but you can find excellent options. Remember, you can do more with $100 in LATAM than in the US. The dollar is stronger than any of the currency there.

2. It is safe.


I know most of you when thinking of LATAM you only can remember violence, walls, immigrants, and wars. The truth is LATAM is the zone which has grown the most in the last decade. Most of the countries are better today than ten and twenty years ago. Yes, there are countries with some problems, but it is the exception, not the rule.

Before you choose your destination, check what it is the situation. I promise you will find excellent reviews. Tourism is an important part of the economy; then, they take care of the tourists. In any case, you always need to be careful when you go to a new country.

3. The options to have fun are infinite.


Latin America has options for twenty years of traveling. If you like beaches, you have the Caribbean, Atlantic, and the Pacific. You can have snow (Bariloche), forest (Amazonia), desert (Atacama), mountains (the Andes) if you like landscapes. You can also have amazing historical places from ancient cultures (Maya, Inka, and Aztecs), colonial cities (Lima, Bogota, Guatemala), modern cities (Panama, Sao Paulo).

If you like sports, you can attend any event because they have softball, baseball, croquet, tennis, and many major athletic competitions. Architecture, painting, and sculptures are there; the list of great museums is big.
You can plan any trip to Latin America.

4. Food is the best.


I can say that the cheapest restaurant is Latin America is better than any expensive restaurant in the US. The food there is so tasteful and varied, even street foot is fantastic. The best food in LATAM is affordable.

Each country has its traditional food; all of them are unique and amazing. Any country you chose will offer you the best gastronomy.

5. People are amazing.

I know you can find great people everywhere, but Latinos are kind, funny and talkative and even if they don't speak English, they will talk with you a lot. They are party people; they love to dance and sing. They will help you and assist you for anything you need. You are going to love them.

Do you see? You can plan more than one trip to Latin America. It is so close and affordable to try. I promise you won't regret it.

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Honey has been a staple in my Ayurvedic skincare routine since I was a kid and my grandmother used to make me homemade paste-like face masks by mixing chickpea flour, turmeric, honey, and yogurt together.

I now use honey head to toe — on my hair to make it extra shiny, on my face for its natural smoothing and anti-bacterial properties, and the rest of my body for its extreme textural and brightening benefits. Some people even use it on their armpits for honey's lightening effect on the skin.

People Are Eating Salads For Breakfast, And It's About Time

As Americans we know we all need to eat more fruits and veggies, why not do it at breakfast?

I first started seeing a dietitian in late 2017. At the time, I was the heaviest I've ever been at about 210 lbs. At the first appointment, my dietitian asked me to record what I ate in a food diary so she could better understand my habits and give me better direction in changing my lifestyle. I did exactly that and returned a week later, diary in hand. After a cursory glance at the pages, she first remarked at how few fruits and vegetables I ate. Deep down I had already known that, but what I didn't know then was that I was far from being alone in that respect. According to a Times article, about 90 percent of Americans don't consume enough fruits and vegetables to meet current dietary guidelines. It's hardly rocket science as to why that is — many of our diets consist mainly of carbs and non-planted based protein. This isn't to say that carbs and protein are the devils; they're both parts of a balanced diet. However, vegetables and fruit are also part of a balanced diet — a part that often gets neglected. So, when I see people on Instagram eating salad for breakfast, I think to myself "It's about time!"

This coffee brand is USDA organic. Newman's Own Keurig coffee flavors are all organic. They have French Roast, Decaf, and a Special Blend. I'm in a committed relationship with the French Roast flavor. The smell alone from dispensing 1 cup of coffee sets a whole cafe jazz vibe.

I'm already relaxed when I smell the coffee all ready for dressing. The way I make my coffee is simple and sweet, literally. I add a spoon of organic brown sugar and a splash of organic almond vanilla milk. This cup of coffee has changed my life forever. I have never been so productive in my life and I truly believe it's because the coffee is organic.
