Latin America has some of the most interesting countries in the world, here's the most interesting countries in Latin America. Without further ado, let's start!

The Top Ten

1 Mexico Mexico, officially the United Mexican States, is a federal republic located in North America. The country is located between the U.S. and Central America, and is known for its Pacific and Gulf of Mexico beaches and its diverse landscape of mountains, deserts, and jungles.

Mexico is the most interesting lain american country in my opinion, overall maybe even in the whole world! Mexico has such an interesting culture and great foods like tacos, and the so interesting aztec people were from Mexico, who are in my opinion the most interesting people who ever lived on the planet! I just find this country so interesting! - darthvadern

I'm mexican! and trust me, this pais apesta mucho...

2 Peru Peru, officially the Republic of Peru, is a country in western South America, bordered by Colombia and Ecuador to north, Brazil to east, Bolivia to south-east, Chile to south and the Pacific Ocean to the west. Peru is mostly known for being where the Inca people originally came from. The capital of more.

Not bragging, but we have about half of the Ancient Civilizations of South America along with Bolivia and Ecuador.

Deciding between Peru and Mexico was hard, but I just found Mexico somewaht more interesting, however this country was close to beat Mexico! From Peru is where the so interesting mountain people known as the Inca came from who are so interesting! Machu Pichu is such a gorgeous and interesting place! Peru is easly near the top! - darthvadern

3 Brazil Brazil, officially the Federative Republic of Brazil, is the largest country in both South America and the Latin American region.

The biggest country in South America as well as Latin America is of course on the list! This country has the biggest rain forest in all of the world, Amazonas, there's tons of different and interesting species there! This country also has some cool cities and beaches - darthvadern

4 Ecuador Ecuador, officially the Republic of Ecuador, is a representative democratic republic in northwestern South America, bordered by Colombia on the north, Peru on the east and south, and the Pacific Ocean to the west.

Well, South America as whole is in my opinion the most interesting continent on the planet and Peru, Ecuador and Paraguay are the biggest reasons why.The republic of the equator, I said it because ecuador means equator. Such a cool country! The galapagos islands also belong to Ecuador! And in one of the cities: Guayaquil, you can actually find iguanas on the street! This country deserves to be high up! - darthvadern

5 Argentina Argentina, officially the Argentine Republic, is a federal republic located in southeastern South America.

In my humble opinion, Argentina has by far the most interesting history in Latin America.

Argentina was once one of the richest nations on earth, but bad management and corruption have made its GDP per capita to fade away over time. However, Argentina remains one of the best countries to live in Latin America, with one of the highest standards of living.

Argentina is also very progressive compared to most Latin American nations, with he possible exception of Uruguay. Argentina was the second country in the Americas to legalize gay marriage in 2010, after Canada. Argentina almost legalized abortion last year, in much of Latin America, abortion is not even a discussion.

Argentina may have lots of problems, but its undeniable that it remains one of the best countries in the region.

6 Bolivia Bolivia, officially known as the Plurinational State of Bolivia, is located in western-central South America.

Bolivia is known as the heart of South America and for good reason! Basically Bolivia has one of the best enviroments in South America and there's so much interesting stuff about Bolivia! There's two capital cities, yes, two capital cities! La Paz which is located in the middle of the Ands and it's tricky to get out of, and Sucre which is also located in the Ands, but more east to the jungles. The country is usually divided into two parts, Collas in the mountains of the Ands to the west and Cambas, the biggest one in the jungle to the east, and these regions are completely different from each other, it's just so interesting - darthvadern

7 Paraguay Paraguay, officially the Republic of Paraguay, is a landlocked country in central South America, bordered by Argentina to the south and southwest, Brazil to the east and northeast, and Bolivia to the northwest.

Paraguay is one of those very mysterious and interesting countries, something interesting about Paraguay is that the nort-west part AKA 60% of the land is pretty much completely uninhabited which is a huge and open plain, it doesn't have too many tourists but it's such an interesting country - darthvadern

8 Uruguay Uruguay, officially the Eastern Republic of Uruguay, is a country in the southeastern region of South America.
9 French Guiana French Guiana, officially called Guiana, is an overseas department and region of France, located on the north Atlantic coast of South America in the Guyanas.

Arguably the least known country in South America and thus I find I really interesting! Tons of swamps can be found as well as jungles. It's also the only french-speaking South American country - darthvadern

Well I guess so, but I recognize it as its own country because of how different it is, but it is actually classified as one - darthvadern

The Contenders

11 Suriname Suriname, officially known as the Republic of Suriname, is a sovereign state on the northeastern Atlantic coast of South America.

I didn't make enough research since Suriname and Guyana or Belize are classified as latin american, but oh well they are still interesting - darthvadern

Of the three unknown pearls of South America: Guyana, Suriname and French Guiana, this one's the most interesting! I don't know why but something about it really catches my interests, there's tons of jungles here, tehy drive on the left side of the road and Paramaribo is one gorgeous capital city - darthvadern

13 Venezuela Venezuela, officially the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, is a federal republic located on the northern coast of South America.

The last dictatorship of South America, this country is ruled by Nicolas Maduro and has ruled the country as 2013. It is also considered the most dangerous South American country, thus it is interesting in my opinion, Caracas, a dangerous yet cool looking capital city, I find it interesting - darthvadern

Its food and beutiful places are just irresistible.

15 Guyana Guyana officially the Co-operative Republic of Guyana, is a sovereign state on the northern mainland of South America. It is, however, often considered part of the Caribbean region because of its strong cultural, historical, and political ties with other Anglo-Caribbean countries and the Caribbean Community. more.

A country to the west of Suriname, Guyana is the biggest country of the three unknown pearls of South America when it comes to size. This country actually has a savannah too, to the south-west and that's quite rare for a South American country - darthvadern
