Monitor Latino (stylised monitorLATINO) is a singles chart founded in 2003 which ranks songs on chart based on airplay across radio stations in Latin American countries and Hispanic radio stations in the United States using the Radio Tracking Data, LLC in real time.[1][2]

Monitor Latino started monitoring radio stations in Mexico and the United States in 2003. The company later expanded into other Latin American markets, and currently it monitors radio stations and issues music charts for 18 countries.

In January 2012, Monitor Latino began surveying radio stations in the Dominican Republic, Colombia, Ecuador, Venezuela, and Guatemala, publishing singles chart which were only accessible to subscribers.[3] Since 2016, their complete charts are accessible to the general public, and an archive for their weekly charts after July 2014 is available on their website.

Monitor Latino hosts an annual award show which is held in Los Angeles, California.[4] The company has its offices in Los Angeles and in Guadalajara, Mexico.
