Welcome to Real Man Travel Guides!

This site is for guys looking to hook up with the girls in other countries. In each city I've been to I rate your chance of hooking up along with what to do during the day, where to sleep, and what spots to hit at night. In each country's overview page I also give a description on the girls. For advice on how to pick girls up, take a look at my game tips newsletter, which complements my book Bang.

How To Speak To Girls In Basic Spanish

When you’re in another country it’s best to approach the girl English to immediately broadcast your gringo status. Another benefit of using English is that since it’s your native language you will hesitate less than if you had to approach in a new language you are unfamiliar with. Opening is half the battle so it’s important to make the first contact even if she doesn’t completely understand you.

If the girl doesn’t speak any English and you are not in a club then you will be in trouble, but otherwise you only need to add a few phrases to your dancing to take things to the next level. Remember that words, while helpful, are not necessary to hook up with a foreign chick who likes you for whatever reason. A little bit of alcohol won’t hurt.

I give the Spanish wording followed by an English equivalent.

1. Hi, how are you?
→ Hola, cómo estás ? (oh-la, co-mo es-tas)
→ Hola, que tal? (oh-la, kay tal)

2. Are you from here?
→ ¿Eres de aquí? (eh-res day ah-key)

3. I’m from the United States
→ Soy de los Estados Unidos  (soy day los eh-sta-dos ooh-nee-dos)

4. You like gringos, yes?
→ ¿Te gusta gringos, sí? (tay goo-sta grin-gos, see)

5. Where can I find…
→ ¿Dónde puedo encontrar… ? (don-day pweh-doh)

6. I’m here on vacation
→ Estoy aquí de vacaciones (es-toy ah-key day ba-ca-sion-ayes)

7. You are nice
→ Tu estás simpatica (two es-tas sim-pot-uh-ka)

8. Do you want to have a drink with me some day?
→ ¿Quieres tomar algo conmigo un dia? (key-eh-res toe-mar al-go con-me-go oon dee-ah)

9. I want to see you again
→ Quiero verlo otra ves (key-eh-row bear-lo oh-tra base)

10. Where is the whore house?
→ ¿Dónde está la casa de puta? (don-day es-ta la ka-sa day poo-ta)

I didn’t put “What is your name?” in the list because it’s best to let the girl ask first as a way to gauge her interest.

For study I recommend you grab ten notecards and put English on one side with the other language on the other. Look at the English side first and see if you can say the Spanish translation with no mistakes. After one or two hours you should be ready.

If you want to take your Spanish to the next level, I recommend taking a look at a guide I wrote a while ago called Teach Yourself Spanish. If you find yourself in Brazil, rest assured that your crappy Spanish will easily be understood by the Brazilians, whose Portuguese is similar to Spanish.

What if you speak Spanish fluently (I’m not quite there, but close, and I will definitely be fluent before I ever get to anywhere in Latin America), would you still advise opening in English?

Yes I would. Then when you hit a wall with english (i.e. when the novelty wears out) move on to spanish.

You might want to consider attending a language school for a week or so. It’s a decent way to get acclimated to a particular country and hook up with other travelers. During classes, I met more than a few babes, both students and teachers.

I love your term “cock block,” Roosh.

Im a 25yr old gringo living on the beach in Mexico for the past 8 years… I found girls thought I was more interesting when I spoke bad, broken Spanish and they only spoke a little to no English… If you laugh while you are talking they think what your saying is really funny and they will laugh too, even though your not funny at all. Now I know Spanish and girls are less interested in me because they stop using their imaginations … Some girls act like they dont speak English when they do just to trick you, watch out for those… Nice site, cant stop laughing, keeps my time at work go alittle faster

I’m portuguese but I can see a couple of very common mistakes there.

Tu estás simpatica -> Tu eres simpatica

“Estar” verb is for WHERE and HOW you are. “Ser” is for WHAT you are. So… “Tu estás simpatica” doens’t really apply unless she is normally bitchy or something, but is being nice today. I hope that makes sense. Basically “to be” splits in 2 verbs in portuguese and spanish.

Quiero verlo otra ves -> Quiero verte otra ves

At least “verla”. But that is formal. Something you might say to an older woman, but to a girl.

“Quiero verlo” applies if u are talking to a man (and in a formal way… otherwise its “verte” as well), or about a man (or a movie, or something other with a “male” word for it).

These are 2 common mistakes for english speakers, and might even add to that gringo allure… 🙂

Hey, don’t say “casa de puta,” that sounds way too harsh. Ask something like “donde puedo encontrar mujeres” and taxi drivers and bartenders and what not will know what you’re talking about, without you sounding like such an ass.

#9 It’s “quiero verte” not “verlo”

And don’t ask “Te gusta gringos, si?” It sounds like you’re fucking Borat over there.

Ask something like, “Y… que te parecen los gringos?” And then give a cute smile. (That means, “So… what do you think of gringos?”

If someone says something negative (usually to be funny I would guess) say, “I totally agree… but what do you think of X type of Gringos?” where the “X type” is your type.

What the hell man?… This is an insult to Latin people in general. Chalk another reason on the board why the world hates the USA.

Learn to speak proper spanish before trying to get laid with a latin girl, you think that your “gringo allure” entitles you to treat women like easy sluts? “Real Man” my ass, asking for a whore house.

I speak Spanish fluently and this has several mistakes. Maybe you should learn before trying to teach.
