Nightlife in Latin America

Living in Latin America for business is fun, but one of the many reasons expats go abroad is because of the diverse entertainment opportunities offered in Latin America, specifically the nightlife. The nightlife down south is much more intense than the United States and generally nightclubs open around 11 and close at 8 pm.  There is not time limit ( at least in Argentina) and cut-off for alcohol sales like in the US so parties can easily drag  into the morning until you collapse from exhaustion. I was under the impression that sane humans avoid partying past 6 in the morning but I was seriously mistaken. The Clubs are called Discotecas or Boliches (in Argentina) and feature a variety of Latin Club music called reggaeton. However, you need to know how to dance reasonably well if you expect to go out to a nightclub, or else you’re gonna end up in the back susing a hookah by yourself the whole night. Learn how to dance and don’t underestimate a Latin’s ability to party. While Americans are focused on getting trashed as quickly as possible so they don’t remember the night’s embarrassments, Latinos see the night as some sort of endurance race where you start early and end as late as humanly possible. Using these tips, you should be able to navigate the nightlife safely without waking up with a hangover in another country after a wild night out.

Safety is another concern, and you shouldn’t drink or party in areas you feel unsafe in since that’s  just an invitation for a strong-armed robbery. Always be aware of your surroundings and be mindful of who you are with and what they are doing. There are  criminals who specialize in robbing and taking advantage of people who are partying or unsuspecting foreigners. Using these tips, you should be able to navigate the nightlife safely without waking up with a hangover in another country after a wild night out
