In this article, we’re going to discuss the differences and similarities between Colombian and Peruvian women. If you ever wanted to spend time in either country, you’re definitely going to find this information valuable. Plus, as someone who has spent an extensive time in each country, I can share a unique perspective that you may find interesting. So, let’s get started.
Colombia vs Peru
Before we discuss the people and, more specifically the women, I think it’s important to compare the actual countries in order to build a solid foundation for our future comparisons. Colombia is located in the northern part of the South American continent. It’s a relatively developed country, and in my opinion the capital, Bogota, is as developed as any European city.
The main language in Colombia is Spanish. In fact, one interesting aspect of the Spanish spoken in Colombia is that it’s considered to be one of the cleanest variants of Spanish in the world. That’s especially true in the capital city of bogota. That’s why a lot of foreign students make it an effort to visit and live in bogota while studying Spanish.
Having spent time in bogota, I can definitely say that’s true; Colombia’s Spanish is extremely clear to understand, especially for people who do not have a firm grasp on the language.
Peru is a South American country that’s located just south of Colombia. Unlike Colombia, which has access to both pacific and Caribbean coasts, Peru has access to only the pacific coast. Peru’s capital is Lima, which is a pleasant city, but it’s not as organized as Colombia’s capital. The official language in Peru is also Spanish, but it’s not as clear as the Spanish spoken in Colombia.
Overall, while I liked Peru, I did prefer the orderliness and the overall general feel of Colombia. Colombia has awesome cities to visit such as Medellin and bogota. While in Peru, you have Lima and Cuzco (the gateway to Machu Picchu).
Let’s not beat around the bush and get to the meaty parts: the looks. After all, we men are visual creatures, so looks are super important to us. After all, that’s the first thing that captures our attention, that is, before we get to know the woman and decide that we found our soulmate.
Generally speaking, Peruvian women are, for the most part, very “Latin American” looking. a lot of them also have indigenous roots, too, giving them an overall darker complexion and “indigenous” looks. Sure, Colombia has its own share of women that look “indigenous,” but arguably it’s not as much as in Peru.
So, if what you’re after is more of a European-type looking Latina, your best bet is going to be trying your luck in Colombia instead of Peru. On the flip side, the women are a bit easier and more approachable in Colombia than in Peru; the women in Colombia can be snobby and difficult to deal with.
So, if you’re not interested in putting a lot of work in and meeting women quicker, Peru might just be the ticket. In the looks department, I will give the edge to Colombia.
Some say that personality is inversely proportional to looks. And, while there are some exceptions, I believe that, for the most part, that is true here. The women in Colombia are gorgeous, flamboyant and are truly feminine in all the ways. And, in many ways, so are the Peruvian women. So which women have the better personality. Honestly, it’s really hard to say.
When I visited Peru, I met amazing women in Lima and Cuzco, women that wanted to show me around and present to me the very best that the country has to offer. But then again, I had similar experiences in both Bogota and Medellin, Colombia’s two largest cities.
Looking at it in reverse, I can tell you that neither the Peruvian nor the Colombian women have any complexes or serious personality issues. From my experiences of living in the countries, I can confirm that both types of women are friendly, easy going, and would add an immense value to your life. Thus, in this area it’s a tie.
Long term potential
So what is the long-term potential of dating Peruvian or Colombian women? The good news is that both nationalities of women can become awesome long term partners and even great wives, should you want to start a family in the future.
Many years ago, I dated a beautiful Colombian woman who wanted to start a family and if I was ready, I’m sure she’d prove to be a great mother. Unfortunately, I wasn’t ready on my end and that’s why we parted ways. Thus, in this area, I would hand both Colombian and Peruvian women a solid A+ when it comes to the long-term potential of having a serious relationship and starting a family.
Do they like foreigners?
As a foreigner, you’ll have to make peace with the fact that some foreign women aren’t too interested in dating men outside of their nationality—some more than others. While it’s rate that the entire country wouldn’t be interested in dating foreign women—that only applies if you’re visiting a very conservative country like Saudi Arabia or something, most of the time, you will be situations where the women you’re pursuing just aren’t interested in dating a passer-by foreigner because they’re interested in catching a fish in their own pond.
From my experience, and especially in Latin American countries, I noticed that most of the women fall into one of two categories: she’s either not open to dating foreigners or she’s open to dating foreigners. There’s also the possibility of the third category: women who only date foreigners. I know they exist, but I really haven’t met many women there.
Generally, both Peruvian and Colombian women are open to dating foreigners. The trick is finding the types of women who are.
That means sticking to big cities, going to places where women expect to meet foreigners, etc. it also means studying the local language, Spanish, since it will help you to get women to take you more seriously as opposed to someone who can’t weave two words in Spanish together. I will give this category a tie as well.
So, there you have it: comprehensive comparison between two South American nations. Because these countries are so similar: they do share a border, after all. It’s difficult to make a definitive comparison and tell you where to go and what to avoid. I can, however, tell you my personal opinion. When it comes to countries, I prefer colombia. I don’t know why, but the country just connects with me better and this is mainly why I visited it multiple times. But Peru is no slouch judging by the millions of people who visit the famed Machu picchu every year. Perhaps you will be one of them sometime soon.
