AllMusic Review by

Very Best of Fiesta Salsa Latino features 18 tracks of chart-bound Latin pop, most of it from the late '90s or early 2000s. Los del Mar's "Macarena" leads off, followed by Arrow's cover of "Hot Hot Hot" and a version of "Mambo No. 5" (by a group of unknowns billed as the Mambo Kings) that closely apes Lou Bega's version. From there, the collection grabs tracks from only a few credible acts -- including Gitanosoy and Byron Lee & the Dragonaires -- and relies mostly on forgettable material.
