Best Latino Movies to watch during the Holidays #HowWeDoLasFiestas

Holidays are known for allowing people some time off from their daily routines. Some of these movies might not be about Christmas time, but I ensure you, you will love to watch them during this Christmas season. Also, these movies are all piled up on Netflix and ready to be screened with your Familia.

Here are my picks for this Holiday season:

Soltera Codiciada – (How to Get Over a Breakup)

A heartbroken ad copywriter living in Lima, Peru, is inspired to write a blog about life as a single woman and is surprised by her website’s success. A must-see.

And Diego from the worldwide famous soap opera Rebelde is in there – puedo morir feliz.

Palmeras en la Nieve (Palm Trees in the Snow)

A beautifully filmed movie that follows the journey of a young Spanish woman to her family’s plantation in Africa to uncover generations of family secrets.

Todos lo Saben (Everybody Knows)

Coming back from Argentina to her small Spain hometown for her sister’s wedding, Laura must face long-hidden secrets when her daughter is kidnapped.

And such a fantasy to see Javier Bardem and Penélope Cruz together on screen.

Contratiempo (The Invisible Guest)

A successful young entrepreneur has less than three hours to prove his innocence in the murder of his mistress. This movie promises you to keep you captivated.

Thi Mai, Rumbo a Vietnam (Thi Mai)

In this heartfelt comic drama, a decisive mother travels to Vietnam along with her two friends to bring back the baby her recently deceased daughter had planned to adopt.


This movie portrays an incredible journey after suicide. It follows the protagonist from disaster to rebirth in her own life.


Impossible to leave behind this epic movie directed by legend Alfonso Cuarón. Pure reality and emotion from a domestic perspective in Mexico during the 1970s.

Lo más sencillo es complicarlo Todo

A great movie for young Millenials to see how it’s possible to let go of expectations and just enjoy the moment.

A pesar de Todo (Despite Everything)

If you ever had a fight with one of your parents or a sibling…you need to watch this movie.
