More than 50 events have taken place in the 11 months since Sky Costanera began operating as one of the most innovative event centers that the Chilean market has seen in recent times, located at the top of the highest tower in Latin America and offering an exclusive 360 ​​° view of the Chilean capital. Product launches, press conferences and corporate end-of-year parties, among other meetings, have taken place in this unique space that is revolutionizing the industry. His proposal is calling the attention not only of companies but also of institutions for a cause and even government offices, especially related to tourism. MICE events have been successfully placed. Place is becoming a milestone in the city and in the industry that has allowed the realization of very novel events. “There was a climb up the tower, a vertical run, commemorating the Glaucoma Week,” says the executive.

The launch conference of the Rolling Stones concert, at the end of last year, and the Davis Cup draw, recently, are two other important events that have given the brand a presence in the mass media. Also, they emphasize the massive spinnig Skymorphosis, that counted on the participation of international and Chilean instructors.

Sky Costanera has positioned itself as a tourist/MICE landmark, placing itself in that sense as a top in Tripadvisor, something that companies have read very well, understanding that this attraction can be very well used to organize attractive events. “The companies understand that if they want a world class event, they need a space like this, which has enough advantages for it.

The demand for events at the top of the tower has been intense since the venue opened its doors for this purpose.

The safety and comfort for users is one of the decisive elements in the management of this place as a center of events, in such a way that two different meetings are not held at the same time, although technically there is room for this. On the one hand, Sky Costanera wants to assure its clients a 360 ° vision, which is an important differential, and at the same time having two floors is also a great advantage.

 

Machupicchu on NatGeo’s 10 Unforgettable Trips list.

The Inca sanctuary of Machupicchu is one of the 10 Unforgettable Trips listed by National Geographic Travel magazine that are sure to create unforgettable memories in the New Year.

The article is introduced with a question about the perfect trip to take with someone special.

New York City, in the United States, tops the chart as a place for the would-be National Geographic photographer.

Peru’s iconic Inca citadel, Machupicchu, comes next and is described as a destination for the hiker who appreciates comfort at the end of the climb.

One of the highlights includes hiking snowcapped peaks of the Vilcabamba mountain range.

The article recommends other tours through sites that are not as popular as the above-mentioned Inca masterpiece.

For instance, exploring coffee plantations and traditional Andean villages on your trek to Machupicchu could be a good option.

“Spot bird species like the golden-headed quetzal and the Andean cock-of-the-rock, plus 18 different hummingbirds, while walking the trails at Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel with a naturalist,” the author suggests.

“Return to your adobe casita, set in the cloud forest at the foot of Machupicchu, and enjoy a cozy fire, a chance to relax in the eucalyptus sauna, and traditional Peruvian cuisine,” she adds.

The list also includes trips to Antarctica, Belize, Japan, Southern Africa, Southern Italy, Galapagos Islands, Cuba, and the Bahamas.

9 Argentine restaurants in Latin America’s 50 Best

Argentine gastronomy is living its best moment. In 2017, Buenos Aires was the Gastronomic Capital of Latin America and 9 of the 50 best restaurants in Latin America are in Buenos Aires, according to the San Pellegrino ranking known as Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants, released on October 24. Neither more nor less than one fifth of the total.

The now famous Tegui (10th place) was named The Best Restaurant in Argentina, for the second consecutive year, followed by Don Julio (13), El Baqueano (19), Chila (26), Elena (37), Aramburu (44) ), Crizia (48), Proper (49) and Mishiguene (50). While these last three debuted this year, the other six held onto and improved their positions.

During the awards ceremony and thanks to an agreement with Wines of Argentina, the event sponsor, regional wineries offered their wines to be tasted. Among them were, Casa Bianchi, Familia Zuccardi, Rutini Wines, Navarro Correas, Finca Las Moras, Finca Sophenia, Bodega Luigi Bosca, Trapiche, Susana Balbo Wines, Tapiz, El Esteco, Finca La Luz, Los Toneles, Terrazas de los Andes and Trivento.

So without further-a-do here are the 9…

Tegui. Germán Martitegui is an eminence of Argentine haute cuisine. After working with Francis Mallmann and Beatriz Chomnalez in the nineties, it took him two decades of stylistic work to find the equation that defines Tegui as the best: a combo that crosses Buenos Aires cuisine with the techniques of haute cuisine, on a personal journey of flavours that remind you of adolescence and the present, endowed with much detail and aesthetics. Behind the graffitied door of Tegui in the heart of Palermo, the spacious and warm living room with the kitchen in the background is the ideal refuge to try a menu in constant renovation.
Costa Rica 5852, Palermo / Buenos Aires.

Don Julio. This temple of good beef and the best wines occupies a corner of Palermo with one of the best treasures stored in the cellar: vintage bottles from the 1950s of classic labels, as well as complete verticals of those wines that gave fame to Argentina. In that, the passion of Pablo Jesús Rivero, its owner, has no competition in the city. But in addition to the drinks, Don Julio’s secret is his beef. You can try aged cuts of more than 5 years – a rarity – to delicate pieces like entraña or cuadril.
Guatemala 4699, Palermo / Buenos Aires.


El Baqueano. The duo formed by the sommelier Gabriela Lafuente, and the chef Fernando Rivarola, has been bearing fruit in this culinary vanguard restaurant for several years. In fact, they created Kitchen Without Borders, which looks for the diffusion of local cuisines and products. Combining international techniques with products from these latitudes, in its cozy and renovated lounge you can try llama and quinoa croquettes, among other delicacies. Specialists in discovering new flavours, the wine list also offers some sophisticated bottles.
Chile 499, San Telmo / Buenos Aires.

Chila. With a display of cosmopolitan modernity, this restaurant whose glass terrace overlooks the docks of the old port of Buenos Aires is one of the pillars of Argentine gastronomic renovation. Andrés Porcel, its owner, has been building its reputation for over a decade, and this year has joined the Relais & Château chain. The kitchen is a search for excellence in the dishes supported by the seasonal menu, which was created by Soledad Nardelli and continues today under the watchful eye of the young Pedro Bargero.
Alicia Moreau de Justo 1160, Puerto Madero / Buenos Aires.


Elena. Since its launch in 2013, this restaurant inside the Four Seasons Hotel Buenos Aires has attracted the attention of meat lovers. With the executive direction of Chef Juan Gaffuri, in his spacious room with a colourful metal structure and open kitchen you can taste Angus and dry aged cuts and the best charcuterie and local cheeses. A mix of luxury and executive, the atmosphere is pleasant. The wine list, by sommelier Laura Cagnani, is a gem.
Posadas 1086/1088, Recoleta / Buenos Aires.


Aramburu. For the gourmet lovers, this small restaurant in the south of the city is a must stop, for three reasons. One, Gonzalo Aramburu is one of the most creative chefs of his generation. Two, he offers a step-by-step menu where you can see countless products and presentations, from fake corals to stones on which shrimp are cooked. Three, it is an intimate place where the experience of the dishes acquires a singular aesthetic character. With a well-chosen wine list, the choice of pairings is memorable.
Salta 1050, Constitución / Buenos Aires.


Crizia. The chef and owner Gabriel Oggero manages, in this sober and spacious Palermo premises, to combine the cuisine of the sea and the mainland, oysters as well as beef and lamb. With an oyster farm in the north of Patagonia, it is the right place to eat them and then jump to other dishes made from the menu. In the thirteen years it has been open, it has gone from strength to strength, with impeccable service. A more than deserved promotion to 50 Best.
Gorriti 5143, Palermo / Buenos Aires.


Proper. It only opened two years ago but is already among the best. With the help of chefs Leo Lanusol and Augusto Meyer in what could be a workshop, Proper is a vanguard of the wood-fired clay oven. In a combination of hipster aesthetics and accomplished and simple cooking, word of mouth consecrated the dishes of this duo of thirty-somethings.
Aráoz 1676, Palermo / Buenos Aires.


Mishiguene. Last but not least at number 50, is a recognition of a kitchen that does not usually shine in the city. Tomás Kalika, co-owner with Javier Ickowicz, is the chef who developed a concept of classic aggiornados. In a sophisticated environment, in a way that redefines Sephardic and Eastern European cuisine, with Middle Eastern influences. From the Liebe Tuna, the Kreplaj and the Meorav Yerushalmi, the kitchen of Mishiguene shines with its own light.
Lafinur 3368, Palermo / Buenos Aires.


HOME HOTEL BUENOS AIRES distinguished as the best in Latin America.

The garden, the details of interior design and the pool awarded Home Buenos Aires as the best boutique hotel in the region.

When in 2000 Patricia O’Shea and Tom Rixton decided to move from Dublin to Buenos Aires they looked for a property to build a hotel. They wanted to invite their European friends to the wedding, and to host them “in a really cool place”, as they define. Two years later, in an old furniture factory on Honduras Street, they built Home Buenos Aires. With 20 rooms, all different from each other, a dream garden, pool and special interior details, today the hotel became the Best Boutique Hotel in Latin America 2017, according to World Boutique Hotels Awards.

Six or seven years ago, wall papers did not have the “deco” acceptance they count on now. But they were the fetish of Patricia and Tom, who brought them especially from London. They became one of the reasons why the organization rewarded the hotel: “The collection of original wallpaper that the owners treasure, some as old as from 1889”. And they add: “The vegetable sanctuary next to the pool, Mulata: the hotel’s cat, and the effort to transport guests to live an experience that transmits the history and culture of its location, with its own style, were also evaluated satisfactorily “.

During 2017, the Home was also recognized among the 25 Best Hotels of South America in the Travelers Choice Awards 2017, of the magazine Condé Nast Traveler, in which it obtained the position no. 8, the highest among hotels in Argentina. In addition, they won the Best New Hotel Design Awards from Wallpaper Magazine 2006, Condé Nast Gold List 2015, and Best Boutique Hotel Argentina – Luxury Travel Awards 2014.
