First we must be aware that the term Latin America doesn't applies to English speaking countries, only those that have a Latin-based language as its official language are considered Latin countries, both in Europe and in America.

In the case of the Latin countries in America, they form Latin America, and in the case of our neck of the planet these countries consist of Spanish, Portuguese, and French speaking countries.

Regarding the countries in Hispanic America (or Spanish America), English isn't widely spoken in any of them. Puerto Rico, which is an associated state of the USA but acquired from the Spanish Empire, is probably the most bilingual Spanish-English speaking country in Latin America. However, as anyone that have been to Puerto Rico will tell you, bilingual Puerto Rico is mostly limited to San Juan and its metro area, because outside of that Spanish is king.

In the rest of Spanish America, outside of tourist areas that are frequented by North Americans (Cancun, Cabo San Lucas, etc); English isn't widely spoken. And, even in the small areas where English is widely spoken, its mostly spoken in very bad form.

The upper classes of most Spanish American countries tend to be bilingual, usually Spanish-English but many are also Spanish-French.

The Bay Islands region in Honduras was colonized by the British so most people speak English in this area. In the mainland there are over 70,000 fully bilingual individuals. The numbers will continue to grow considering there are over 700 bilingual schools, more than the rest of the region combined. This, and their "neutral" accent is turning Honduras into a call-center hub.

Well about Panama, it depends on who you hang around with, for example, high class ppl, they all speak English because they go to bilingual schools or simply travel and study in the US or English speaking countries, the middle class, about 40 to 50% speak English because they know that in order to get a well paid job, they have to speak English. Black ppl who are descendants from blacks who came from the West Indies, speak it too, of course, with their Creole accent and slang, but the rest of the population, it is very difficult to find ppl who speak English. Now, there are a lot of American and European expats who live here, thus they speak it.
