Looking for love in one of many Latin American countries? LatinAmericaCupid has over 5 million users, most of them in the US, Mexico, Brazil, Colombia, Peru, the Dominican Republic, Venezuela, Ecuador, Chile, Argentina, Puerto Rico, and Cuba. Launched in 2003, LatinAmericaCupid is targeted at Hispanic men and women, although it seems the gender on the app leans heavily male, as only about 20% of users are female according to Dating Scout. The app is free to sign up, however a paid subscription is required to message all users. LatinAmericaCupid if only available for Android users, there is no iOS app. Sorry iPhone users.
