I have finished my South America Travel Guide. I give overviews of each country and city along with a “Chance Of Hooking Up” rating. It’s geared for guys.
1 out of 5: You have an extremely low chance of hooking up. Don’t visit for the girls.
2 out of 5: You’ll need quite a bit of magical luck.
3 out of 5: There are girls around, but it’s not necessarily easy.
4 out of 5: You have a very good chance of hooking up if you put in an honest effort.
5 out of 5: Hooking up is guaran-fucking-teed as long as you aren’t disfigured.
I provide a handy list of all the cities I visited sorted according to their rating. Only one city gets a five (you’ll be surprised). I came up with the rating because almost all the guys I know are using women as considering for travel, but popular guides like Lonely Planet and Frommers don’t offer help in that department. In each country’s overview, I give a general description of the girls. Here’s what I say about Ecuadorian girls:
Ecuadorian girls look very indigenous with straight black hair, high cheekbones, thin eyebrows, and small eyes. …most of them look like pictures of Native Americans in your high school history textbook. In smaller cities, the white man is looked on with an extra dose of curiosity, and his gringo status will attract an occasional prostitute working pseudo-undercover.
This project gave me a glimpse into travel book writing. Turns out it’s a pretty boring and tedious gig. My guides are basic but they took a ridiculous amount of time to put together.
