Top Ten Least Famous Latin American Countries

I have already made one for Africa, Asia, Europe and Oceania, so let's make one for the final continent, but I will make one for Latin America as whole though since it would be hard to just do for South America, and North America (USA, Canada and Mexico) are all well-known. I will maybe do one for the caribbean countries as well in the future

The Top Ten

1 Belize Belize is a country on the eastern coast of Central America. It is the only country in Central America whose official language is English, though Belizean Creole and Spanish are also commonly spoken.

Belize is quite an unknown country, it's very small and Guatemala took most of its space so it's about to fall of the atlantic ocean. This is the least famous country in latin america in my opinion - darthvadern

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

Of the south american countries Suriname is the least known, some people even think it's located in Africa. It's squeezed in between french guiana and Guyana, they drive on the left side of the road and they even speak Dutch - darthvadern

3 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.

Not really a country but I recognize it as a country. Well it's quite obvious that this country in unknown and it belongs to France. - darthvadern

4 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.

Not as unknown as French Guiana or Suriname but not many people now of it still. - darthvadern

5 Nicaragua Nicaragua, officially the Republic of Nicaragua, is the largest country in the Central American isthmus.

The flag is quite similar to El Salvador's and Honduras but it looks quite angry unlike those two. The country itself I believe is safer and rather the opposite though. I think that's what makes it so unknown - darthvadern

I'm from there ( I just born there and moved to canada so I guess I'm not really Nicaraguan at all, I don't even speak nicaraguan spanish dialect.)

6 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.

One of two South American countries without a coast along with Bolivia, I think Paraguay get's way less attention though because Bolivia is bigger and used to have a coast. Paraguay has to go on a river instead to reach the coast - darthvadern

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

The only interesting fact about this country is they lost its shoreline because of Chile. - MrCoolC

Such an interesting yet unknown country. To the west is Collas which is located in the mountains and the two capital cities are there, and to the east is Cambas which takes up two thirds of the country and is located in the jungle - darthvadern

8 Uruguay Uruguay, officially the Eastern Republic of Uruguay, is a country in the southeastern region of South America.

Arguably the safest country in South America and safer than the US as well. Yet it doesn't recieve too muh attention, which goes to Argentina and Chile instead - darthvadern

9 El Salvador El Salvador, officially the Republic of El Salvador, is the smallest and the most densely populated country in Central America.

The one country with the second highest homicide rate in the world. The only higher is Honduras, thus it's not nearly as known as its bigger neighbour. I love the flag though - darthvadern

10 Costa Rica Costa Rica, officially the Republic of Costa Rica, is a country in Central America, bordered by Nicaragua to the north, Panama to the southeast, the Pacific Ocean to the west, the Caribbean Sea to the east, and Ecuador to the south of Cocos Island.

I would disagree with anyone who voted here. It is an extremely popular tourist destination which most people have heard of. - rankist

Well true, it's just not as known as many other latin american countries, like Brazil or Argentina - darthvadern

People consider it to be the safest central american country and I do have a friend from there so I guess it's right, however Panama getse all the spotlight for being the gateway to South America - darthvadern

The Contenders

11 Dominican Republic The Dominican Republic is a sovereign state occupying the Eastern two thirds of the island of Hispaniola, in the Greater Antilles archipelago in the Caribbean region.

Not latin american - darthvadern
