As a matter of fact, yes. You'll see different pronunciations of different sounds (and sometimes completely different words, so make sure you know what you're saying, but that's a rant for another time) as you go country to country.
For example, Spain says "z" and "c" with a lisp.
Carribean countries say their "r"s as an "l" (hamburguesas => hambulguesas - it's a real tongue twister sometimes).
Mexico pronounces "y" and "ll" with a lil' "j" sound (as do several other countries).
Venezuelans replace every "s" with a small sigh.
Argentinians pronounce their Spanish like they're speaking Italian.
These are just a few examples, so the easiest thing to do is try to focus on one pronunciation (The most popular and most understood are Mexican, Colombian, and Spanish). Nobody will judge you in a different country if you speak with a strong accent.
