If you are truly interested in dating and potentially marrying one of our single Latin personals, it is imperative that you understand their history first. Learning the colorful culture and traditions of these Latin personals will also allow you to understand them better.

The history of Latin America is one that can be categorized as rich yet turbulent. Comprising the entire South American continent with the inclusion of Central America and the Caribbean islands, this region is home to varied cultures and diverse people. All in all, the Latin American region is composed of 29 countries along with dependent states and constituent entities.

  • The Start of Spanish and Portuguese Rule

    Latin American countries share a common colonial history. All countries that comprise the region with the exception of French Guiana, Guyana and Suriname have been colonized by either Spain or Portugal. The early history of this region has essentially been shaped by events that involved Spanish conquistadors and the once mighty Portuguese Empire.

    Unknown to a lot of people, before Christopher Columbus discovered Continental America, Portugal already had a legal claim on this huge chunk of land. In 1494, after a year of dispute over control of the newly-discovered continent, the two powerful empires ratified the Treaty of Tordesillas which essentially ceded Brazil to Portugal, leaving the rest under Spanish control. This treaty will then lay the foundation of the current demographics of the Latin American Region.

  • Latin American Independence

    Spain will consequently rule over the majority of the region for over three centuries. However, during the Empire’s fall to Napoleon from 1807 to 1808, most of Spain’s colonies found this as an opportune time to escape from Spanish rule.

    While most Latin American countries gained independence between 1818 and 1825, Cuba and Puerto Rico became US protectorates after the Spanish-American War. The former was granted independence in 1902, while the latter is still under U.S. jurisdiction up to this day.

  • Spanish Influence in Latin America

    Up to this day, Spanish influence is still very evident in the culture of Latin America. Having ruled the region for over three centuries, their influence extends even up to the present-day Latin American dating culture.

    The tradition in Latin America is a unique blend of traditional indigenous practices and Spanish influence, which makes for a rather colorful culture. One of the Spanish influences that has persisted and prevailed in Latin America is religion. Due to Spanish colonialism, Latin America has become a predominantly Catholic region.

  • Language in Latin America

    This region is also a home of different languages. With Spanish being the most widely spoken language, it only goes to show the extent of Hispanic influence in the region.

    Despite the fact that only Brazil recognizes Portuguese as a primary language, almost half of the population of South America speaks it. This is due in large part to Brazil being the largest and most populous nation in the continent.

    French and Dutch are also spoken in certain areas especially in the Caribbean. However, most of the countries that speak the aforementioned languages weren’t subjected to either Spanish or Portuguese rule.

    Cha Cha

    Salsa

    Salsa originated in the Caribbean and is known to be one of the most entertaining and widely practiced social dances in the world.

    Samba

    Originally from Brazil, Samba is one of the most popular Latin dance styles when it comes to dancesport performances. The speed of the body movement varies depending on the beat and groove of the music. Samba can also be performed either with a partner or solo.

    Tango

    Tango is often referred to as the dance of seduction due to its exaggerated sensual movements. Birthed in the dockside brothels of Buenos Aires Argentina, Tango is known for its racy and passionate choreography. It remains to be one of the most famous Latin dances to date.
