Pátria minha by José Lino is a real gem of a channel. The host, José Lino, is from Mozambique and speaks in a very slow and clear Mozambicano Portuguese.
His channel isn’t for learners, but for Portuguese speakers to see a slice of life in lusophone Africa. The channel is great for learning daily speech. His channel shows how basic day-to-day things are (slice of life) in his little slice of Africa.
Join José Lino as he traps jungle rats for meat, shows off his work station at the local market, shows off Mozambicano cuisine, and more. The mundane becomes interesting when it is so different to what we know.
Portuguese is a global language spoken in Asia, Africa, the Americas, and Europe. Brazilian content gets a lot of the spotlight, but channels like this really show what lusophone media has to offer.
Portuguese with Leo is a great channel. The content is learner content, but even if it weren’t, I would still watch it as he discusses many interesting topics. Join Leo as he discusses linguistics, language, and even show-cases cultural differences between lusophone countries.
Leo’s content is a mixed bag, in a good way. Leo talks about Portuguese in Portuguese, always has matching soft-subs, and is very likeable. His content ranges from linguistics content, to SLA discussion, Portuguese for Learners content, and even fun vlogs about his travel and life.
He also hosts “Liga Romanica” with three other romance speakers. Where you can put your romance language abilities to the test as they have four-way cross talks in Italian, Spanish, French, and Portuguese

Mundo Sem Fim is a fantastic travel channel. Come along with Renan, Michele, and their stuffed monkey Mucuvinha as they travel the world.
They speak Brazilian Portuguese and their content is by natives for natives. If you’re a fan of Luisito comunica and travelogs you should enjoy this channel.
I was torn on the spot for my third favorite Portuguese YouTube channel, because this slot could have easily gone to another strong contender “Ribeirinha da Amazônia Fabiola Alves Pedrosa“, a vlogger who lives in the Amazon, but her lower production value and difference in narrative style make her hard to follow for beginners.
