The 100 Sexiest Latinos!

Latinos are sexy: We all know that! And in order to prove just how sexy we are, our staff at Latina has compiled a list of the SEXIEST Latinos! Meet the 100 sexiest Latinos and let us know who we missed!

1. Sexist Colombianos: Wilmer Valderrama

Wilmer Valderrama

Suave star Wilmer Valderrama is certainly a jack of all trades and a striking hot commodity. Last year he starred in NBC’s detective show Awake and the film The Girl Is in Trouble which premiered in August at the New York International Latino Film Festival. Fans can soon catch him in all of his muscled, wife beater glory when his newest movie, School Dance, comes out in 2013.


2. Sexist Colombianos: Juanes

Juanes

Sultry singer-songwriter Juanes has the kind of animal magnetism only a true musician can attain. Juanes began his music career as a member of Ekhymosis, a heavy metal band, before launching his solo career. He’s sold enough records and earned enough awards to fill a small home, and we bet those bad boy looks have something to do with it!


3. Sexist Colombianos: Andrew Keegan

Andrew Keegan

Though he has a vast multitude of credits to his name, part-Colombian actor Andrew Keegan might be best known for his role as Joey Donner in 1999’s 10 Things I Hate About You. Sure, he played the jerk, but teenage girls everywhere couldn’t help but swoon anyway – there’s a reason he’s believable as a cocky underwear model! 


4. Sexist Colombianos: Adam Garcia

Adam Garcia

Devilishly handsome part-Colombian film and theatre actor Adam Garcia is every woman’s dream. Not only can he act, dance, and sing, but he has a severely sexy accent to boot! He began his career acting in the stage versions of Saturday Night Fever and Wicked in London and in movies such as Coyote Ugly, Bootmen, and Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen. Most recently the actor appeared in Revolution and the production of Kiss Me Kate.


5. Cubans: Adam Rodriguez

Adam Rodriguez

Adam Rodriguez’s chiseled, manly jaw, among many of his other sexy features, will land him on any hot list, and the Cubans are lucky to call him theirs! The actor has played a variety of characters including Eric “Delko” Delektorsky on CSI: Miami and a thong wearing, drool worthy stripper in 2012’s Magic Mike.


6. Cubans: Danny Pino

Danny Pino

The desirable Danny Pino has been making solving crimes sexy for the past decade playing detectives on shows like Cold Case and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. We’re tempted to commit a crime so that Pino will come looking for us!


7. Cubans: William Levy

William Levy 

Cuban model and actor William Levy needs no introduction to a list like this. This heartthrob has been making ladies swoon since before he placed third on ABC’s fourteenth season of Dancing with the Stars with his mass sex appeal and washboard abs. We already know we’ll be rushing to the theaters this year to see that body on the big screen when Levy stars in Boom Town.   


8. Cubans: Pitbull

Pitbull 

The muy suave Cuban entertainer Pitbull has been charming audiences with his catchy music and smooth, sophisticated style. Though he’s been on the radar for the past decade, Pitbull had a big year in 2012 releasing his seventh studio album Global Warming, his second compilation album Original Hits, and embarking on a massive world tour entitled Planet Pit World Tour.


9. Cubans: David Gallagher

David Gallagher

Audiences watched actor David Gallagher grow up before their eyes as blonde, adorable little brother Simon Camden on the long-running WB hit family show 7th Heaven. Now 27, he’s all grown up and with looks like his probably breaking hearts left and right! Since leaving the show that made him a household name he’s earned guest spots on shows like Numb3rs, CSI: Miami, and Criminal Minds.  


10. Cubans: Bobby Cannavale

Bobby Cannavale

The tall, dark, and handsome Bobby Cannavale has made playing bad look so good. Though he first truly caught on the radar of viewers playing kind paramedic Bobby Caffey on the first two seasons of Third Watch, he’s most recently been seen playing antagonistic roles in hits Nurse Jackie and Boardwalk Empire


11. Cubans: Nestor Carbonell

Nestor Carbonell 

Fans may feel lost without somewhere to go to get their fix of gorgeous Nestor Carbonell each week. The Cuban actor played Richard Alpert in the famed ABC hit Lost. Last year Carbonell could be seen alongside Sarah Michelle Gellar on the CW’s Ringer

12. Cubans: Matt Cedeno

Matt Cedeño 

A former model with perfect lips and a body that appears to have been chiseled out of a slab of marble, there’s no doubt that actor Matt Cedeño belongs on our sexiest list. The Cuban portrayed hunky Brandon Walker on the NBC soap Days of our Lives.  

13. Cubans: Eddie Cibrian

Eddie Cibrian

Though the constant personal drama isn’t a turn on, actor Eddie Cibrian is able to hold his own on this list based on looks alone. He rose to success playing roles on shows like Sunset Beach and Third Watch, but he’s been making headlines most recently as the centerpiece in the feud between his ex-wife and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville and his current wife country sensation LeAnn Rimes

14. Cubans: Laz Alonso

Laz Alonso

One picture of popular Laz Alonso is all it takes for women to sigh in yearning for this beautiful man. NBC decided to test the self control of ladies everywhere when it premiered its new series, Deception, starring the Avatar actor earlier this month.

15. Cubans: Ryan Lochte

Ryan Lochte

“JEAH!” Thousands of females are shouting Ryan Lochte’s trademarked catchphrase with glee at the sight of the Olympic swimmer on our hot list. The 11-time Olympic medalist has turned a generation of women into competitive swimming fans with his adorable (sometimes grill filled) smile and god-like body. Lucky for us we won’t have to wait another four years to watch Lochte in action since E! has recently announced that a six-episode reality series entitled What Would Ryan Lochte Do? will be premiering in April of this year.  

16. Cubans: Andy Garcia

Andy Garcia

The second half of the only father/daughter pair to appear on this list, 56-year-old Andy García is the perfect dapper gentleman. He’s best known for his incredible acting talent churning out numerous hits including Internal Affairs, When a Man Loves a Woman, and the Ocean’s Eleven series. He even received an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor for his part in The Godfather Part III.

17. Puerto Ricans: Marc Anthony

Marc Anthony

Anyone can feel Marc Anthony’s sex appeal come through in his soulful salsa music. Picture your hips dancing with this suave two-time Grammy winning singer’s hips, and you’ll understand just what we mean!

 

18. Puerto Ricans: Freddie Prinze Jr

Freddie Prinze Jr

When actor Freddie Prinze Jr. surged onto the movie scene in the late 90s teenage girls fell head over heels for the part-Puerto Rican cutie. He starred in teen movies like She’s All That, Boys and Girls, and Summer Catch – we’re guessing he’s also starred in more than a few dreams! 

19. Puerto Ricans: Ricky Martin

Ricky Martin

Intense eyes, perfect hair, sexy smile, and swoon worthy vocals, what aspect of Ricky Martin doesn’t belong on this list?! This sexy Puerto Rican has been singing and dancing his way into our hearts for years with dozens of pop hits, hot acting roles, and even stints on Broadway! 

20. Puerto Ricans: Amaury Nolasco

Amaury Nolasco

Amaury Nolasco’s muscles seem to bust out of any shirt he wears! Best known for his role as Fernando Sucre in Prison Break, his many adoring fans can find this hottie in this year’s movie A Good Day to Die Hard.

21. Puerto Ricans: Chayanne

Chayanne

Do you have the desire to run your fingers through Latin pop singer and actor Chayanne’s dark locks? We do! This drop dead sexy man has released over 21 solo albums.

22. Puerto Ricans: Daddy Yankee

Daddy Yankee

Puerto Rican singer Daddy Yankee makes crushing on him far too easy! Ladies everywhere can’t help but be charmed by his combination of reggaeton sound and sexy features.

23. Puerto Ricans: Esai Morales

Esai Morales

The manly sex appeal of 50-year-old Esai Morales certainly hasn’t faded with age, in fact, we’d argue he’s only gotten hotter! The actor has starred in movies like La Bamba and shows like NYPD Blue.

24. Puerto Ricans: Freddy Rodriguez

Freddy Rodriguez

Freddy Rodriguez’s smirk of a smile makes us wonder what he’s up to, and what’s more alluring than a mysterious man? While the actor has played a wide variety of roles to date, his most famous might be the character Hector Federico “Rico” Diaz on HBO’s Six Feet Under.

25. Puerto Ricans: Ramon Rodriguez

Ramón Rodríguez

Before you check out Puerto Rican Ramón Rodríguez it’s probably best to sit down. Yes, the actor is that hot. Rodríguez is probably best known for his roles on The Wire and Day Break.

26. Puerto Ricans: Howie Dorough

Howie Dorough

Some may have chosen Nick or Brian as their Backstreet Boy of choice, but we’ve always had a soft spot for sexy BSB member Howie Dorough!

27. Puerto Ricans: Carmelo Anthony

Carmelo Anthony

Surely New York Knick Carmelo Anthony didn’t think we’d include his wife and forget to include this baller on our list! The tattooed small forward has muscles in his arms and fire in his eyes, he sounds like our kind of man.

28. Puerto Ricans: Victor Cruz

Victor Cruz

Maybe it’s all of the adrenaline, but there’s just something about athletes that gets our hearts racing. Combine a New York Giants NFL athlete with a suave Latin man and you get sexy end zone salsa dancer Victor Cruz

29. Puerto Ricans: Bruno Mars

Bruno Mars

We’d stay locked out of heaven if it meant a lifetime with classically sexy singer Bruno Mars. The 27-year-old already has two studio albums to his name, not to mention a Grammy.

30. Puerto Ricans: Maxwell

Maxwell

If the sight of R&B and neo-soul musician doesn’t do it for you (though let’s be honest, it should), just wait until Maxwell opens his mouth. He currently has four albums to his name with another due out sometime this year.

31. Puerto Ricans: Jimmy Smits

Jimmy Smits

Actor Jimmy Smits is a real man’s man, which of course only makes him that much hotter to the ladies! Some of Smits’ most memorable roles have been on L.A. Law, NYPD Blue, and The West Wing. Last year Smits joined the cast of Sons of Anarchy.

32. Puerto Ricans: Benicio del Toro

Benicio Del Toro

Benicio Del Toro’s bad boy looks only make him that much more enticing to females everywhere. The award winning Puerto Rican actor and producer has had an incredibly successful career thus far, and the streak he’s on continues to stay hot, just like him!

33. Dominicans: Victor Rasuk

Victor Rasuk

Where do we start? Victor Rasuk first captured our hearts in the indie gem Raising Victor Vargas – and has continued to do so in every role he’s played. That NYC accent, those lips, the grittiness/humility about him. Did we mention those lips?

34. Dominicans: Prince Royce

Prince Royce

Ever since the young Bronx-bred bachatero sang his way into the Latin music scene with “Stand By Me,” fans have been doing the same – standing by him. They have fallen in love with not just the now 23-year-old’s music, his charm – but those dimples too.

35. Dominicans: Juelz Santana

Juelz Santana

He may be famous for his Billboard Hot 100 top-ten single "There It Go (The Whistle Song)," but Juelz Santana could easily get whistles himself. The 31-year-old Afro-Dominican hip-hop artist is one handsome man!

36. Dominicans: Alex Rodriguez

Alex Rodriguez 

A-Rod is sexy… and all of Hollywood knows it. No, seriously - the man's dated some of the most coveted female actresses. The Yankees heavyweight (who is now unfortunately on crutches) is definitely a ladies man. Who can blame him, though?

37. Dominicans: Romeo Santos

Romeo Santos

One glance at Romeo Santos may have you repeating a famous Shakespeare line: “O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?” The 31-year-old singer and former Aventura member, who has achieved great success as a solo artist, is F-I-N-E, FINE! And you know you can’t resist an attractive man with a beautiful voice? 

38. Dominicans: Henry Santos

Henry Santos

Sure, his cousin Romeo Santos may get more attention. But fellow Aventura member Henry Santos is similarly guapo. And the Dominican-born singer, the group’s songwriter and producer, has even more positive traits. He’s hilarious, charming and can dance, as proven by the title he earned after his run on the third season Univision’s Mira Quien Baila in 2012: "El Rey de la Pista."

39. Dominicans: Lenny Santos

Lenny Santos

Maybe it’s the fact that he plays guitar, but Lenny Santos has some serious guns. Have you seen his biceps? And the former Aventura member isn’t bad on the eyes either!

40. Dominicans: Max Santos

Max Santos from Aventura

Like his fellow Aventureros, Max Santos is fine-looking specimen. But what separates the bass player from the rest of the band is his sexy hip-hop-esque swagger. Max, who has some serious rap skills, even waxed poetic on the band’s track "Don’t Waste My Time," as well as the Nina Sky single "You're Lying."

41. Dominicans: Luny Tunes

Luny Tunes

It’s double the looks and double the fun when talking about Luny Tunes. That’s because the Dominican reggaeton duo made up of 33-year-old Francisco Saldaña (Luny) and 31-year-old Víctor Cabrera (Tunes) are as handsome as they are talented. 

42. Dominicans: Tristan Wilds

Tristan Wilds

It comes as little shock that Tristan Wilds was named to People’s "Most Beautiful People" list in 2009. The 23-year-old actor and the star of the CW’s 90210 reboot has a smile that can light up a room. “He’s like a young Denzel Washington,” we declared when we named him to Latina’s own Most Beautiful list. 

43. Dominicans: Fabolous

Fabolous

Since releasing his debut album Ghetto Fabolous in 2001, Fabolous has been making his mark in the hip-hop world with his mad lyrical skillz. But the 35-year-old Afro-Dominican hip-hop artist has had the ladies saying “Damn,” which happens to be the title of one of hit singles, with his sweltering swagger.

44. Dominicans: Manny Ramirez

Manny Ramirez

What can we say? We love a man with dreads. And 40-year-old baseball star Manny Ramirez has been rocking his for a while now. 

45. Dominicans: Robinson Cano

Robinson Cano

Ayyy, Robinson Cano from the New York Yankees. This man is so fine that, if baseball were to crumble for him, the 30-year-old could always aim to be a model. Of course, the likelihood that this would happen is very slim, seeing as that Cano is an award-winning player. And we all love winners, don’t we?

46. Dominicans: Jesse Terrero

Jessy Terrero

Jessy Terrero may be a Latino powerhouse in the entertainment world and a rising star in Hollywood behind the scenes. But the 37-year-old Dominican-born film and music video director who directed the smokin’ hot music video for Wisin y Yandel and Jennifer Lopez’s “Follow the Leader,” has leading man looks that could put George Clooney to shame.   

47. Dominicans: Ulysses Terrero

Ulysses Terrero

Jessy isn’t the only sexy Terrero. His equally talented brother, Ulysses Terrero – a director, producer and casting director – is one attractive man. ¡Ay, caramba!

48. Dominicans: Miguel A Nunez Jr.

Miguel A. Núñez, Jr.

Sure, Miguel A. Núñez, Jr. did not make a really attractive woman in his gender-bending lead role as a basketball star who impersonates a female to join the women’s basketball team in the 2002 film Juwanna Mann. But out of drag, the 38-year-old New York born actor of Dominican descent is definitely much easier on the eyes.

49. Dominicans: AraabMuzik

AraabMuzik

What is sexier than the music AraabMuzik’s produces? The man himself. Those lips. That talent. That chin of his. We should thank his parents.

50. Dominicans: Rico Rasuk

Roderick Rasuk

Well, they must call him Rico for a reason. When we met the tatted-up 23-year-old star of MTV’s Washington Heights this past holiday season, he wore a shirt that read: “I Am The Dominican Dream.” We believe it. Oh, and did we mention he has a gorgeous half-smile? Yep.   

51. Dominicans: Frederick Rasuk

Frederick Rasuk

The star of MTV’s Washington Heights (and Rico’s younger bro) is tall and kind of lanky. We dig him. Who can resist that gorgeous face and hustle spirit? Tell us… who?

52. Sexiest Mexicans: Ryan Guzman

Ryan Guzman
Insanely sexy Ryan Guzman provides the perfect kick off to our list of superfluously sexy Mexicans. Fans probably remember him best for his lead role in the dance flick Step Up Revolution. We see that pool of drool on your keyboard, if you plan to make it through this list, we suggest grabbing a mop.  

53. Sexiest Mexicans: Eduardo Verastegui

Eduardo Verástegui
Actor, model, and singer Eduardo Verástegui has the kind of raw sex appeal that belongs on the cover of a romance novel. Once a part of the band Kairo, Verástegui has more recently acted in telenovelas and films like Bella and Chasing Papi.

54. Sexiest Mexicans: Gael Garcia Bernal

Gael García Bernal

Can’t you just imagine forgoing work today to cuddle up with Mexican hottie Gael García Bernal? We certainly can! Though this actor and director got his start as a telenovela star, Bernal chose to leave those roles behind, and the decision turned out to be a great one. Now engulfed in a crazy successful career, he’s starred in films like Y tu mama también, The Motorcycle Diaries, Babel, and Casa de Mi Padre.

55. Sexiest Mexicans: Ferdinando Valencia

Ferdinando Valencia

If we could stand to pull our eyes away from Ferdinando Valencia’s sculpted abs for even a moment we’d notice the rest of him is also worth a double take. The Mexican actor has had roles in telenovelas and television shows like La Rosa De Guadalupe and Solo para mujeres.

56. Sexiest Mexicans: Victor Noriega

 

Victor Noriega
This Mexican hottie and former member of the musical group Garibaldi has uber sexy run-your-fingers-through-me hair. The musician turned actor has starred in a multitude of Mexican soap operas like Qué bonita amor and Angel Rebelde.  Victor Noriega

62. Sexiest Mexicans: Mario Lopez

Mario Lopez
His trademark dimples top our list of things to love about Mario Lopez, but there’s plenty more where that bit of sexy came from. Let’s face it, even Ellen DeGeneres couldn’t help asking the actor and host to strip down on her show last year! Lopez can currently be seen as a host of The X Factor.

63. sexiest mexicans_aaron diaz

Aarón Díaz

Soulful eyes and a hot bod land Aarón Díaz on our sexiest list. The Mexican singer and actor began his career on the teen drama Clase 406 before eventually moving on to shows like Pan Am and El Talismán.

64. Sexiest Mexicans: Michael Pena

Michael Peña

Actor Michael Peña has a smoldering gaze that is downright sexy, though that’s likely only one reason for the star’s success. Peña is known for his roles in movies like Crash, World Trade Center, and Tower Heist. Fans can’t wait to see his face back on the big screen this year in films Gangster Squad and Chávez in which he plays the title role.

65. Sexiest Mexicans: Demian Bichir

Demián Bichir

Actor Demián Bichir is rugged, manly, and sophisticatedly sexy, basically everything women eat right up! Bichir has acted in movies like Savages and A Better Life for which he was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actor. Look out for Bichir this year in Machete Kills.

66. Sexiest Mexicans: Oscar de la Hoya

Oscar De La Hoya

We love the fact that professional boxer Oscar De La Hoya could put up his dukes and fight for our hearts because imaging all of that testosterone pumping through his veins is insanely sexy.

67. sexiest mexicans_Jay Hernandez

Jay Hernandez

It’s okay ladies, feel free to relax into full-on lust mode, we know that we are. This sex-on-a-stick Mexican actor has had roles in movies like Crazy Beautiful and Hostel. One of Jay Hernandez’s most recent roles was in 2012’s LOL.

72. Sexiest Mexicans: James Roday

It’s nice to see Fernando Carrillo, who reached telenovela superstar status after his swoon-worthy role opposite Thalía in the 1999 Mexican telenovela Rosalinda, returning to the genre this year in La Magia Del Amor. After all, the Venezuelan hottie wasn’t afraid to show off his perfectly sculpted body for the cameras in a speedo, jeans sans shirt or completely desnudo in the shower, making him the genre’s first real pin-up boy back in the 1990s, well before William Levy came onto the scene. And at 43, Carrillo still looks FINE!

87. SexyVenezuela_Jose Luis Rodriguez

José Luis Rodríguez (El Puma), 70

His daughter with Cuban model Carolina Pérez, Génesis Rodríguez, may be taking Hollywood by storm right now. But it’s her superstar father José Luis Rodríguez, who helped pave the way for Spanish-speaking actors and actresses like her. Better known as “El Puma,” Rodríguez is hands down Venezuela’s most famous export. The Caracas-native, who is still dashing at 70, earned international acclaim as a singer and actor.

88. SexyVenezuela_Wilmer Valderrama
