Santiago, Chile

Santiago, the capital of Chile, is a vibrant metropolis. We stayed at the Singular Lastarria and thoroughly enjoyed the neighborhood's assortment of street vendors, trendy restaurants, and abundant bars. Dined at a few restaurants in the Central Market as well, and would recommend blue crab and conger in particular. The city is virtually surrounded by the Andes and is quite beautiful.

A view of Santiago from San Cristobal hill. To the right is the Gran Torre Santiago, part of the Costanera Center, and the tallest building in Latin America

Palacio de La Moneda, the office of the President and other administrative officials. The city has made great strides since returning to a democratic form of government in the 90's.
