  • The Corks Pop, and the War Is Declared

    Okay, you’ve got four sommeliers, 32 of the best Chilean wines and eight hours. We need you to build a Chilean-inspired wine bar, and be ready to serve over 500 people this evening.
    Oh, and this is a competition. There are three other teams with exactly the same assignment. Yes, it’s going to be challenging, but the reward is pretty sweet; LAN Airlines will fly the winning team in our Premium Business class for a once in a lifetime trip to Chile.
    Ready? Go!

  • LAN Airlines and TAM Airlines Opened the Largest VIP Lounge in South America!

    Skift.com couldn’t have said it better – our new VIP Lounge launched this April 2015 is a physical representation of the diverse cultures of our region, South America.

    Located on the 4th and 5th floors of the western sector of Santiago’s Arturo Merino Benitez International Airport in Chile, this space is much  more than just a VIP lounge. Here are some fun facts and main features of our sleek new space in SCL:

     

  • Take A Bite Out of the Big Apple in Brazil

    São Paulo is often called the New York City of South America, so it makes sense that there seems to be a restaurant trend in the last few years of well-known New York City restaurants opening up in São Paulo, many of those being their first foray into the international market. And why not? Both cities are worldwide gastronomic hubs; they share an eat-or-be-eaten lifestyle; and both cities never close. They might as well have dinner together, too.

    Here is our three favorite spots to take a bite out of the Big Apple in Brazil:

  • The French Café Boom in Santiago

    Got an early morning in Santiago and want to start it off with flaky pastry, or some crusty bread? Or you’ve already had a hotel breakfast but walking around downtown Santiago and beyond has got you hankering for a mid-morning snack? The French are masters of pastry, and whether it’s a second breakfast or an afternoon pick-me-up, Santiago’s many French bakery/cafés have got you covered, from downtown, up through Bellas Artes, Providencia, in Las Condes and Vitacura. A croissant and a café au lait, or your drink of choice is never too far away at one of these French or French-inspired cafés.

    Beyond the Caipirinha: Meet Brazil’s Other Best Cocktail

    No doubt due to an insufferable hangover, most folks already know that Brazil’s national cocktail is the caipirinha, made from the national spirit, cachaça, along with sugar and fresh limes, but what else is there to drink?

    When you are ready to shake things up a bit, branch out and ask the bartender for Brazil’s next best cocktail, the Caju Amigo (Cashew Fruit Friend) – every bit as Brazilian as the caipirinha but not nearly as famous.

    Brazil’s Best Sweet Treats

    If you have a sweet tooth – you know who you are – than Brazil is going to knock you out. Some foreigners even complain that some of Brazil’s most beloved desserts are just too sweet but no self-respecting sugar addict would ever say such a blasphemous thing, now would they?

    Brazilian sweets come in all shapes and sizes and are available everywhere from the streets and beaches to padarias (bakeries) to dessert specialty cafes – you are never far from a sugar coma – and owe a debt to combined influences from Portugal (anything with eggs as the main ingredient!) to West Africa (certain pastries and the like).

    Here’s how to get your sugar high in Brazil!
