Best Selfie in Latin America

Boy with Llama, Bolivia

Latin America has a very diverse population with a broad variety of ethnic groups mixed together and/or living side by side.

On Lake Atitlan, in Bolivia, there are a dozen + villages surrounding a lake with approximately half a dozen different languages spoken by peoples living along the shores of the same lake.

Even Latin Americans who are considered "European" usually have some native ancestry and mestizos make up the vast majority of Latin America's population.

Traditional Attire

Traditional clothing is seen frequently in most Latin American countries (as seen on the Left in Peru), especially during celebrations.

Argentina is no exception, where the essential traditional wardrobe is seen as a reflection of the love Argentines have for their culture.

Many citizens of Bolivia, perhaps the most notable example with the exception of Guatemala, still embrace their Indigenous roots through their clothing. Polleras and bowler hats are very common fashion staples, including the capital city and including members of the government of Evo Morales.

Traditional attire in Brazil varies by region. Women from the State of Bahia, for example, are known for the Bahiana dress, noted for the way that it embraces both African and Indigenous roots.

Traditional garb in Venezuela also represents a blend of French and Spanish influence. A long colorful skirt paired with an off-the-shoulder blouse is customary for women, while the national outfit for men is the classic "Liqui Liqui", an all white or beige pants and shirt combo.

Latin American Festivals

Latin America Festivals are celebrated all over the world, not just in Latin America, involving nationally and internationally known musicians, handmade arts and crafts, authentic Latin American cuisine, traditional folkloric dance performances and much more.

Latin American Culture

Latin American culture, high and low, generally includes those parts of the Americas where Spanish, French or Portuguese prevailed: Mexico, most of Central America, and South America. 

The richness of Latin American culture is the product of many influences, including: pre-Columbian and African influences and the legacy of European colonial society.

Mexican Popular Culture

The culture of Mexico reflects the country's complex history and is the result of the gradual blending of native culture with Spanish culture. Contemporary life in the cities of Mexico has become similar to that in neighboring United States and Europe, with provincial people conserving traditions more so than the city dwellers.
