Virtual Latinos is a US-based virtual assistant company operating out of San Diego. They started operations around the middle of 2018 and specialize in supplying virtual assistants from across the Latin American countries.

About Virtual Latinos

Virtual Latinos ReviewThe idea for Virtual Latinos came from the team behind Bloominari, a marketing agency in San Diego.

They were hiring virtual assistants from all over the world for their clients and realized there was a huge pool of talented assistants based in Latin America working out well for them.

So, with experience finding and hiring from South American countries they decided to start Virtual Latinos to tap into this market and provide virtual assistants to entrepreneurs and businesses of all sizes.

How Virtual Latinos Works

They put their applicants through some strict testing to make sure they meet the high standards they’ve set and marketed to their clients.

“About 10-12% of all applicants are accepted,” my contact told me, and they are currently supplying VAs from 18 different Latin American countries.

Virtual Latinos point out that there are a number of reasons why working with one of their VA’s based in Latin America might be a great fit for your company, these are:

  • Similar Timezone – Depending on the country of the assistant you agree to work with there will be a few hours difference at most from you if you’re in the US.
  • US-Based Certifications – Their assistants are put through US-based certifications and training courses to build on their skill sets.
  • Bilingual – If you deal with Spanish speaking customers or want to increase your reach in the Spanish speaking market their assistants are fully bilingual in English and Spanish.
  • Affordable – Virtual Latinos says their assistants are 40-75% less expensive than US-based assistants due to working from locations with a lower cost of living.

There are no additional costs or long-term commitments. Virtual Latinos also offer a performance guarantee. This means that if you’re not satisfied with your assistant for any reason, they will replace them for you.

My advice is to speak with a member of their team before choosing between the two plans. Explain in detail what tasks you’ll be asking of your assistant so you get off on the right foot.

The cost of an experienced assistant is almost double, so you need to be sure you’re getting value for your money.

The Directory Plan

If you want to post your own job, there are 3 monthly subscription plans to choose from:

  • Free – Lets you post your job to see what kind of response you get, but you can’t contact candidates.
  • Standard – $90 per month, paid quarterly
  • Team – $2/day/VA – also includes time tracking software to help manage your team.

    What a pleasing experience using Virtual Latinos. They selected great candidates’ base on our initial interview and then sent us resume for each potential candidate we selected. They then arrange video conferences with the candidates we wanted to interview. The selection process was seamless and all handled by Virtual Latinos. We are currently using the candidate we selected with great success. Extremely dependent, grasped our accounting needs right away and immediacy become a complement to our existing staff. Communication with our new assistance is outstanding and we couldn’t be more please. We expect to use them again in the near future.

    It took me years to decide to hire a virtual assistant. Finally, Virtual Latinos came along and helped me with the process that I was avoiding. In one of the most difficult times in modern history, I’ve managed to keep my rather new and small business afloat. My virtual assistant is super efficient and has taken a load off my plate.

    Virtual Latinos has continually exceeded my expectations! This was the first VA hire I’d had that was successful. They do a great job of screening their VAs. I used the agency as a great ‘match-maker’ to find my first and second VA and have been so pleased with the whole process. It saved me HOURS of looking through profiles and trying to find the right fit. Really grateful for this service overall!

    Virtual Latinos truly listens and assess the needs of a company in order to provide the best qualified candidates for a position. They are pleasant to work with and very professional. I definitely recommend Virtual Latinos to anyone wanting to add quality staff members to their team.

  1. I have worked with VAs outside of America, but I needed to find an Agency that also worked in a US time zone. A friend of mine had attended a webinar hosted by Jaime at Virtual Latinos, which led me to check you out. Your website was impressive, so I scheduled a call. I can tell you hands down that Jaime’s interview was the most detailed that I’ve ever had. He gathered all the info needed for him to know exactly what I wanted and find the best fit for me. My VA is outstanding!

    We had the best hiring experience through Virtual Latinos. Prior to finding this company, we hired through other platforms and did not have very pleasant experience with the assistants we got. Our biggest issue was reliability and as well as work hours. Now that our assistant is in the same time zone as us, we feel like our work is being done more efficiently and better communication. I recommend anyone who is looking to integrate a long term succesful team member to their company.
