Quote: Traveling abroad is always exciting, but I was particularly happy to visit this country, even on a business trip. There wasn’t much free time for sightseeing, but all in all, we had a fantastic time.

Omni Fort Worth

Hotel | "Highly Recommended"

Omni Fort Worth Photo, Fort Worth, Texas
I really enjoyed my stay at the Omni Fort Worth and would highly recommend it. I stayed there for three days in May. I was attending a conference in Dallas, so I didn’t spend much time at the hotel, but I was very pleased with all the services that I used. Check-in was quick and the staff was very attentive. We were promptly escorted to our room on the 4th floor, which had a pretty good view. The room was spacious and beautifully decorated. The beds…Oh My! The most comfortable bed I have slept in. Upon entering the room we found fresh fruits and some bottle of water, which was a nice touch. Other features include: a desk, iron and ironing board, hair dryer, coffee maker, mini-fridge, bath...Read More

Restaurant | "Starbucks – a Favorite "

Best coffee ever! Photo, Santiago, Chile
"It’s not just coffe – It’s Starbucks" They are totally right. One of the best coffees I have ever tried. My first encounter with this restaurant was at Santiago’s airport.

I ordered a caffe latte, a chicken sandwich, and a raspberry juice. Simple but Delicious!I think it’s a convenient place to eat. It’s a great value for the money you pay (I paid USD 12).

Getting There


The Andes Photo, Santiago, Chile
We had to take four flights to get to Dallas, yes, four! First, Montevideo-Santiago de Chile on Lan. It was a short trip, in less than 2 hours we were landing at Arturo Merino Benítez International Airport. We had a couple of hours to have an early dinner before taking the next flight to Miami, so we started looking for a place to eat. I will write about my dining experience in a different review. It looked like it was 4am, the airport was dark and unbelievable quiet for an international airport. Next segment: Santiago-Miami on Lan, too. I had used this airline some time ago and I still love it. Their service is always wonderful and they have great entertainment options. After a smooth fl...Read More
