La-Date Review: What Is It + How to Get On the La-Date Dating Site in 2024?
My trip across Latin America was filled with breathtaking views, stunning women, and so much delicious food. But it was also filled with romance and lots of dates, partly thanks to the La-Date dating website.
It was my true wingman.
But let’s not skip ahead and see how I was testing the dating service in my La-Date review. It would be helpful to you if you are wondering:
- Is La-Date legit?
- How can I find a Latin partner?
- Is La-Date free?
I answer those and many other questions below ⬇️.
What is the La-Date website?
La-Date is an international dating site that helps foreigners meet partners from across Latin America. I want to start my La-Date review with a quick rundown on some of the basics of this dating site:

Read on to see my adventure in Latin America guided by the La-Date website.
How does the La-Date dating site work?
When I started filling out the registration form, I thought La-Date was similar to other dating sites. And it really is. It’s an online dating platform that operates on the standard system of registration (basic info, age, La-Date login, preferences), searching, chatting, and starting a relationship.
Here is what you need to do to start dating beautiful Latin women or guys:
- Get a bomb profile with hot profile photos. Your La-Date profile is your business card. Hot women wouldn’t have seen my French charm if I put blurry, awkward pics on my page. Flaunt your best features.
- Get that search working. Sitting and waiting is a strategy for failure on all dating sites. Use that search or interactive matching tool People to connect with Latin girls and guys you like.
- Approach beautiful women (or men) you find attractive. Make that move before other Western men haven’t. Most of the Latina women I’ve chatted with have many suitors.
Another thing that I want to mention is verification. I like that LaDate offers it, and it’s free. Around 95% of female profiles are verified, which deserves a 🥐 as it’s great to know that you are talking to real women, not fakes.
So, La-Date is a standard dating service, but it is not just a dating site, as it has on-site social media and many other cool features that we have yet to test.
Who is La-Date for?
From my personal experience testing the site in Colombia, Mexico, Brazil, and other Latin countries and based on chatting with over 100 Latin women and 10–20 men during my La-Date review, I found out that it can be used in many ways. Some people just seek fun time-spending and meeting new friends from abroad, others seek long-distance romance, and some are even looking for their soulmate.
I’d say La-Date is quite a versatile online dating platform.
Though the intentions of the daters are different, there are some similarities I’ve noticed. Based on that, I can say that La-Date will be a good option:
✅ People open to international relationships and online romance
✅ Individuals who are into Latin women or men and don’t mind starting a relationship at a distance
✅ Singles who just want to unwind from a hard day and chat with Latina girls or guys
You should better consider other online dating sites if:
❌ You seek casual relationships, or one-night stands
❌ You want to find a wife or husband (though some users develop serious relationships, La-Date is not a marriage platform)
La-Date features reviewed by me
After I created my profile on the La-Date site, I was already excited about using the platform, as many of the locals had specifically recommended this site. I’m unsure if it is the most popular international dating site in the region.
But if I need to judge based on how often I was recommended, it would definitely be in top-3.
Search with insufficient filters
As usual, I started searching for a girl I could ask on a date through search ways. The search is the first option in the top tab, and it’s a standard search tool with filters.
Well, though I did find over 5 women who became my dates on Search, I can’t say it’s its fault.
As for me, it’s not detailed enough. I need more basic filters like religion, marital status, preferences, and habits. So, no 🥐 from me.
The People feature will make it hard to choose
It’s the like-skip matching we all love. But be careful; it can be addictive. I don’t even want to know how many hours overall I spent there. I’ve never seen repeated profiles or public photos that raised a red flag.
This search way I like a lot more, and it gets a 🥐 from me.
Newsfeed is dating social media 2.0
The third way to find and enjoy following Latin ladies is through the Newsfeed on-site social media platform. I like how active female users are, as they regularly post updates and really cool pics. Male users don’t stay behind, either.
The only thing I wish were comments. I wanted to give some French-level compliments but couldn’t.
I will always be a Chat man
Communication is the most important thing about all dating services. I believe so, and that makes me test La-Date legit communication ways even harder.
Live chat was always been my favorite, and I’ve noticed that most users share my passion. I even asked a girl I’ve been on a date with which features she used the most, and she told me it was chat, as it is something we all used to.
I want to add that adding photos, videos, audio messages, stickers, and emojis (all available in chat) just takes the online dating experience to the next level.
Photo/video chat exchange to raise the temperature
I’ve already mentioned media attachments in chat. And they deserve some 🥐 🥐 from me.
First of all, beautiful women are open to sending photos, videos, and audio messages that allow you to get to know them better and have a better look at their appearance.
As there is no traditional video chat, it’s the second-best thing for me.
The mail feature opened a Romeo in me!
I’ve told you I’m a chat guy, but the mail feature on La-Date.com did some magic on me and opened my inner Romeo. I’ve read so many genuine letters that it was rude not to reply. JK, but not about the great time I had using this feature. The special thing about it is that you can write up to 3500 characters and attach photos for free.
I’ve met only 2 women to whom I sent letters, but 90% of the time I used to chat. It’s cheaper and faster.
Let’s Talk is like a wingman for all the shy guys over there
Another cool feature that is available for communication is Let’s Talk. I’d call it a wingman extension. Why?
It has ready-to-use phrases that you can use when you feel stuck or just feel out of words approaching a hot Latina girl.
Virtual gifts are a way to make a girl feel special
Also, the feature that I want to tell you about is virtual gifts. I know that they are not for all, but I think that they are a great way to make a compliment or show your interest.
I didn’t send many virtual gifts, only around 5-7 (they are not cheap), but all the women were very happy to receive them.
Oh, and I need to give my applause to the artist who drew those virtual gifts, as they look stunning!
Now that you know everything about all the features, it’s important to talk about money.
The La-Date site runs on credits, so there are no subscription fees. You buy credits on the payment page of La-Date.com and use them for the dating services you want.
The current cost of credits starts at $19.99 for 150 credits in the special offer. And to understand it in terms of services:
- Instant chat is 2 credits/min, which is $0.26
- The 1st mail is 10 credits ($1.30), and all the next are 30 credits ($3.90)
- Video files 50 credits ($6.65)
- Photos/audio attachments cost 10 credits ($1.30)
Is the dating platform expensive? I’d say it’s in the mid-range, and the pricing is similar to other dating platforms in the niche.
Reading other La-Date reviews, I’ve noticed that many users praise the site for reasonable pricing. I’ve spent around $300-$400 on La-Date, but remember that I’ve been to different counties, and your experience can be different.
Also, don’t forget to benefit from freebies:
🔥 20 free credits after registration
🔥 10 extra for email confirmation
Can’t wait to check out attractive female members or male users? I can’t keep you waiting and want to show a woman from La-Date as an example of female profiles and the overall type of female users you can meet on the dating site.
As you can see, this Latin woman is in her 50s and looks bomb! 😍
That’s just a random profile I chose, but on La-Date, you can meet Latin ladies of all ages and beauty types. One thing that I immediately liked about this profile (and many profiles of Latina women) is that they like to add a lot of photos.
The more, the merrier!
Also, I appreciate a sweet intro and a chat tab to start communication without going anywhere else.
There is a short but informative section with basics, traits, dating goals, and hobbies. It might seem like not much, but a person can find something that is a dealbreaker (like marital status) and just don’t waste time and money communicating with the “wrong” person.
Oh, did I mention my love for private photos? They are usually so sexy that if I keep thinking about them, I won’t finish my review 😁.
And that’s a sneak peek into what you can see in the Newsfeed, a social media-like feature where Latin women on La-Date regularly post photos with captions. Oh, and I could like and follow all the female members I liked. But don’t get into the rabbit hole of the Newsfeed feature, as you’ll spend hours there looking at beautiful ladies.
Besides, Latin women are even more charming in real life. I’ve been on more than one real-life date with ladies from La-Date, and I wasn’t catfished once. It happened to me many times, especially in Asia.
It’s not the experience I want to share online .
Wrap-up and tips on how to use La-Date
Oh, I need to end my review, but I don’t want to, as we always have such a good time together! I hope my experience on LaDate will help you understand if this online dating site is a hit for you.
