Barrio Lastarria in Santiago, Chile

Santiago, capital of Chile, has never had the same allure for travellers as some of the other big cities in South America.  Hopefully that’s changing.  It’s a vibrant city, with fantastic food and wine, and an easy entry point from Australia or New Zealand.

I didn’t have a lot of time there on my last visit, but I stayed in the popular Barrio Lastarria.  Chock full of bars, restaurants, art galleries it was the perfect place to spend a few hours before the next flight.

I stayed in the Hotel Ismael 312, a very cool boutique hotel right in the heart of this great neighbourhood.  Definitely recommended!
