Latin for Lovers was a Doris Day album, mostly composed of songs originating in Latin America, released by Columbia Records on March 22, 1965 as a monophonic LP (catalog number CL-2310) and a stereophonic album (catalog number CS-9110).

Although "Fly Me to the Moon" was not of Latin-American origin, it was an early song adapted to the bossa nova dance then becoming popular, and so associated at the time with Latin America.

A Columbia 45 r.p.m. single. #4-43278, was released to coincide with the album. It featured "How Insensitive" as the a-side and "Meditation" as the b-side. Neither song charted.

The songs were arranged by Mort Garson, who also conducted the Orchestra.

The album was reissued in 2001, combined with Doris Day's Sentimental Journey, as a CD.
