About This Quiz

Japan is known for sushi and ramen, while France is a great place to take pictures of the Eiffel Tower. But what about a country that is known for exotic beaches, colorful clothes and foods like gazpacho and paella? We're talking about places like Costa Rica, Ecuador, Cuba and Spain since these are all known as Spanish-speaking countries!

But how can you be sure if you're ready to visit one of these types of places? Well, for starters, it's important to have all of your documents in order, such as a passport, ID card, travel insurance, city maps and traveler's checks. And while most of us are familiar with how the U.S. dollar works, the conversion rates greatly differ depending on what country you visit. For example, 1 USD is equivalent to 19.52 Mexican pesos. Or, if you're traveling to Spain, it's helpful to know that 1 USD equals out to .91 euros. Other important travel tips include knowing at least a few phrases in another foreign language, staying safe in both public and private areas and knowing what types of foods and beverages to consume and avoid. But above all, have fun, because traveling is about experiencing new types of cultures! So whether or not you think you're ready to visit a Spanish-speaking country, it's time to take our adventurous quiz now!
