This book presents original happiness research from and about a region that shows unexpectedly high levels of happiness.

Even when Latin American countries cannot be classified as high-income countries their population do enjoy, on average, high happiness levels.

The book draws attention to some important factors that contribute to the happiness of people, such as: relational values, human relations, solidarity networks, the role of the family, and the availability and gratifying using of leisure time.
