Travel in South America Blogs
1. Nomadic Hustle
Jake Darby AKA Nomadic Hustle is a blogger who is known for his on-the-ground info on all things Latin America.
Now note that this blog is not a PG blog and can contain some explicit content however you are never gonna find info like this from guy’s on Tripadvisor or Lonely Planet.
He emphasises getting out there and exploring the countries you visit. A lot of the times when people go visit a country, they stick to the touristy areas.
I’m sure you are guilty of this.
Hell, I know I am.
This is not how true travel should be experienced.
Jake has been to a whole bunch of places south of the USA border and gives detail tips on how to navigate the continent.
Want to know good places to stay, where to meet a senorita?
Highly recommended blog and definitely check it out, if you are planning a trip to South America.
Read his blog over here.
Jake, like me, also believes that learning Spanish is set to explode over the coming years due to the influence of pop culture.
2. My Latin Life
A highly underrated blog and guide to all things Latin America.
Vance runs the blog who hails from good ol’ Canada.
He has a very interesting story which you can check out here. It’s a really interesting one.
Again like Nomadic Hustle, My Latin Life is not a PG blog.
Vance has written extensive travel guides on cities in South America and is extremely well-travelled across all of Latin America.
You will find a lot of off-the-path places that will give you adventure.
His blog is definitely worth a visit if you want to go down to that side of the world.
