  • Historic and Hip

    In the early 20th century, the well-to-do of Lima would flock to the cliffside town of Barranco to escape the chaos of the city. As Lima continued to spread, the wealthier residents moved out and the area became a bohemian haven for artists, writers and musicians. Now a mix noteworthy landmarks, eclectic art spaces, and chic eateries, Barranco has done well with maintaining its historic identity while embracing its reputation as Lima’s hippest neighborhood.
  • Pucón Restaurants

    Located in Chile’s central Lake District, and resting under the seemingly benevolent gaze of the snow-capped Villarrica volcano, the town of Pucón has long been a favorite stop for adventure-oriented travelers. This group traditionally works up a good appetite, and considers culinary exploration part of the adventure, so it should come as no surprise that Pucón has more than its fair share of interesting dining options. Here are a few that particularly stand out.

  • The bar that hosted the inspiration for a “Girl of Ipanema”

    Ice cubes dance on the waves of caipirinha in my glass, like the waves from Ipanema beach in the distance. The sun is out in all its glory, illuminating the sidewalks outside Veloso Bar Café. I come here often to drink in the lazy summer afternoons when the smell of the salty ocean breeze lingers in the air. Two blocks from Ipanema, Veloso opens up onto the streets like a classic French café and bustles with activity at all hours of the day. It’s my favorite spot in the city, a perfect piece of history to watch the magical atmosphere surrounding Ipanema, the relaxed excitement that is contradictory but characteristic of Rio de Janeiro.
