About Women Travel Latin America

Women Travel Latin America is all about inspiring women to travel Latin America, discover its wonders and hidden secrets, and perhaps discover some hidden truths about ourselves and our place in the world along the way. This is a website by women travelers for women travelers, to help us through the uncertain moments and to rejoice in our discoveries.

At times thought of as a dangerous area, Latin America is far more open to women travelers than many believe. Here we bring together women writers and bloggers and give a space for them to express their hopes, fears and dreams. We open to you the world of experiences they’ve had throughout Latin America, from Mexico to Argentina.

Join these women in their journeys.  You’ll be touched by their stories and inspired by what they have done. Learn from what they did wrong and what they wished they had done differently.

Celebrate with them in their success and achievements and let them motivate you to set your own goals and work towards your own dreams.

Join this community of women showing the world that yes, women can travel. Alone or with a friend, we have a powerful community behind us and a whole lifetime of dreams to accumulate.

Let the traveling begin…

2017 Women Travel Latin America Writing Competition

The editorial team at Women Travel Latin America is now accepting submissions for the 2017 Women Travel Latin America Writing Competition.

We are passionate about empowering women to travel. We want to see more women shaking off any fears they may have, packing their bags, and exploring new areas or revisiting the ones that changed their lives in the past.

For the Alone Together Anthology we are looking for engaging, thought-provoking stories or essays that explore the theme of women traveling in Latin America, both alone or together. We want you to give us a fresh perspective, a revised look on the clichéd idea of Latin America being a dangerous region for women travelers. 

So share with us what you think: should women travel ‘alone’ in Latin America?

  • Have you traveled alone or with other women?
  • How did you feel traveling through a region that some view as dangerous?
  • What advice do you have for other women who want to travel, alone or together, to discover this fascinating part of the world?

Winning submissions will be published in the 2017 Alone Together anthology in conjunction with the Bogota International Press.

First place prize: US$100
