The Latin Grammy Award for Best Tropical Song is an honor presented annually at the Latin Grammy Awards, a ceremony that recognizes excellence and creates a wider awareness of cultural diversity and contributions of Latin recording artists in the United States and internationally. The award is reserved to the songwriters of a new song containing at least 51% of the lyrics in Spanish. Instrumental recordings or cover songs are not eligible. Songs in Portuguese may be entered in the Brazilian field.

The award was first presented to Juan Luis Guerra for the song "El Niágara en Bicicleta" at the 1st Latin Grammy Awards held in 2000. He is also the most awarded performer in this category, winning on every occasion he's been nominated, a total of four times. His song "La Llave de mi Corazón" also won the award for Song of the Year in 2007, becoming the first tropical song to do so. Apart from Guerra other multiple winners include Sergio George and Jorge Villamizar, both with two wins.

Colombian songwriters have won this award a total of six times, more than any other nationality though it has also been presented to songwriters originating from the Dominican Republic four times, the United States three times and Puerto Rico once.
