What this the top destination for Latinos when moving to another Latin American country?

My guess based on some facts:
Puerto Ricans- Dominican Republic
Dominicans- Puerto Rico
Haitians- Dominican Republic
Cubans- Puerto Rico
Mexicans- Puerto Rico
Guatemalans- Mexico
Salvadorans- Mexico
Honduras- ? (Either Mexico or Costa Rica)
Nicaraguans- Probably Costa Rica
Costa Ricans- ?
Panamanians- ? ( Either Costa Rica or Colombia)
Colombians- ?
Venezuelans- Probably Colombia
Peruvians- Probably Colombia
Ecuadorians- ?
Bolivians- ?
Paraguayans- ?
Brazilians- ?
Argentines- ?
Chileans- Probably Argentina


Also, Latino groups are present in these Latin American countries in large numbers...

Puerto Rico- about half of modern day immigrants (both legal and illegal) come from the island of Hispaniola, Dominicans and Haitians represent about 2% each. There are also smaller numbers of Cubans, Mexicans, and Colombians. Most immigrants live in Metro San Juan.

Dominican Republic- Haitians (many of which are illegal) represent about 10% of DR's population, many live in rural areas along the border. There are also much smaller but growing numbers of Puerto Ricans and Cubans.

Cuba- Similar to the rest of the Spanish Caribbean, there is a large Haitian population present.

Mexico- Most non-Mexican Latino immigrants come from Central America (Guatemalans, Salvadorans, Hondurans, and Nicaraguans).

Colombia- ?
Argentina?

Opinions. Agree? Disagree?

Disagree. Colombians move everywhere; Panama, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Chile, Argentina I even saw a few in Mexico and DR & know of a few in El Salvador. Of all at the moment the preferred destination would be Panama with Argentina topping the list when it comes to students and Chile topping the list for people from Cali & the Pacific coast.

Peruvians & Bolivians move to Chile and Argentina.

Dominicans also move to Chile.

Apart from that I think you're more or less right.

Opinions. Agree? Disagree?
Costa Ricans - Panama(close by with a similar standard of living. Some of Nicaraguan descent move back to Nicaragua too)

Panamanians - Costa Rica(same reason as above)

Colombians - Everywhere...lol. Venezuela USED to be the top destination for Colombians but, nowadays, it's a 3 way tie between Panama, Ecuador, and Chile, with Chile being the top destination I'm presuming.

Peruvians - Chile by a landslide

Ecuadorians - Either Colombia or Chile

Bolivians - Argentina followed by Chile

Paraguayans - Argentina by a landslide

Argentines - A 3 way tie between Chile, Paraguay, and Brazil

Brazil - Argentina followed by Paraguay

Chileans - Argentina as you said.

On a side note, Cubans tend to immigrate just about everywhere as well from PR to Mexico to Panama to Brazil.

A lot of Haitians move to Chile too.

Haitians also move to Mexico, and were moving to Brazil until Brazil's economy calmed down.
