This adorable idea from our Diva Becca gives your spouse a passport and a plan for various themed dates for different countries. Both my husband and I have lived in Spanish-speaking countries and I have some Spanish blood myself, so naturally our first stop for our Passport to Love had to have a Spanish twist! Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links. There is no denying that there is something MUY sexy about the Spanish language and culture, so this date night is sure to be hot, hotHOT! Start by inviting your, soon to be, latin lover with this beautiful invite by Leah Aldous.
Anticipation is everything! Hearing the sweet sounds of Spanish makes me weak in the knees. All the ladies are swooning. For Spanish date night, there needs to be some of this romance language being used.
To help you out — I have put together my Top 10 Romantic Phrases in Spanish along with a pronunciation guide for you know how to say it. If you already speak Spanish like my spouse and I do — go the whole night speaking in Spanish.
You can use the romantic phrases provided or add some of your own. One of the BEST parts about the culture is the food! We did try to find one that was true, authentic Mexican food and not that Americanized stuff! Since it is Spanish Date Night you could also venture out and try Peruvian food, Argentine cuisine etc.
There are LOTS of restaurants to try. You could even create a Big Bites Passport and carry this over several date nights! There are so many Latin beats to set the mood for your evening. I prefer to use Pandora to keep the right style of music going all night long without any repeats. Here are a few station suggestions to get you started:. Now, if you want to set the scene at home try colorful papel picado for decorations.
It is pretty cheap but will instantly add color and culture to your space. Any excuse to get close to your latin lover is an opportunity NOT to be missed!
Men and women or all ages have a passion for dance, particularly partner dancing. Salsa, merengue, cumbia, bachata — these are all partner dances that can turn up the heat on the dance floor.
For this date night find the nearest Salsa club near you! These places often have lessons before the dance officially begins to get even the most novice dancers moving to the beat. My hubby and I found this fantastic website that teaches hot salsa moves with video demonstrations!
They have everything from the very basic all the way to complicated twists and turns.
The mexican date
Maybe on this date you could spend time learning the moves and then next time — hit the club! After food and dancing, we put in a movie that was just perfect to end the night. It is the perfect movie to tie in the culture AND the dancing! Another romantic Spanish movie option would be The Mask of Zorro.
We have a whole date night planned for that one!
You have to be a member to do that!

Together we enjoy traveling the world, and, of course, going on creative dates! I am a former theatre teacher who now stays at home with a spunky little boy. We LOVE hearing from our readers! Thanks for leaving us some love! I want you to know that this is not Spanish.
Spanish food is not spicy at all and salsa dance is not originally from Spain. And by the way, sorry if it sounded kind of rude, but it freaks me out when americans get confused about mexican or south-american and spanish culture, because it is really different.

Anyway, i love your post about the passport to love and i downloaded the printables, they are great! I am sorry if this post was offensive to you in any way. I personally am half El Salvadorian and I have been a Spanish teacher for over 10 years and I know that it can be hurtful to have all the cultures lumped together. I have also lived in Spain, Mexico, Chile and Argentina and am well aware that each country has its own culture that makes it unique. The title of this post is not in reference to the country of Spain but to the Spanish language and the various cultures that use that language.
The Spicy adjective is more in reference to the fun and sexy activities included, not necessarily the food. This is so cute! I think this would be such a fun addition to Cinco De Mayo celebrations! I was hoping for a salsa lesson video! Awesome culture with great food, music, dancing.
