Are you looking for a random city in Latin America and the Caribbean? This generator picks you a random Latin American city to visit.

Latin America can be defined in many ways. This random destination generator uses a loose definition that includes all the countries of South and Central America as well as Mexico and the Caribbean. I have also included cities from territories of other countries such as Aruba (the Netherlands) and Virgin Islands (the U.S.).

I’ve explained the contents of this generator at the end of this page. However, you can simply skip the details and hop straight into action.

About this Random Generator

This random generator is part of a series of random city generators. I have also created randomizers for other regions such as Europe and Africa. You can see the full list of random generators on the page Random Generators.

Some entries in the random city picker include links to my blog posts that I wrote during my 2-year trip around the world. During that time, I spent 4.5 months in Latin America, mostly in Mexico.

The random generator is based on Wikipedia’s list of cities with more than 100,000 people. However, I’ve limited the entries to a maximum of 10 cities per country to balance the randomizer. This is because I wanted to give small countries a chance to appear in the randomizer. Including 300+ Brazilian cities wouldn’t have helped.

If you use this generator to pick a random travel destination in Latin America, I’d love to hear about it! You can share your results in the comments below. You can also use my other generator to pick a random country in the region: Random Country in Latin America and the Caribbean (Random Destination).

The picture at the top is from my visit to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Near the end of my trip around the world, I was running out of time and money. At that point, I had to make a decision: should I spend more time in Latin America or Africa? Instead of making a choise, I let my readers decide. In the end, Southern Africa won the poll over Central America.
