Voice of Travelers to Santiago

A layover in Santiago with a ticket to Buenos Aires

I traveled on an onward ticket from Mexico through Santiago to Buenos Aires. My ticket agent suggested the layover in Santiago to visit the city. I have never been to Santiago before so I agreed to the plan to see Santiago before continuing on to Argentina. This ticket was an expensive one, but the transportation and hotel in Santiago were actually included in the price for the ticket. I purchased the ticket with Air Mexico. Once aboard, the service was good, including a meal. When I landed in Santiago I went straight to the center of Santiago where my hotel was located.Santiago is a great city. I enjoyed my visit of Santiago verymuch and I am happy I bought such an airfare ticket.

Visiting San Salvador for a conference

I visited San Salvador last year for a conference. I was invited, so all my costs in San Salvador were covered with the hosting university of San Salvador. I enjoyed the first class service aboard the Air France flight from Paris to San Salvador since the university booked a first class airfare ticket for me. This return ticket was probably quite pricey, but I just enjoyed the services. Once in San Salvador, I rebooked my ticket to include Tegucigalpa on my way from San Salvador to Paris. I enjoyed all my trip and San Salvador especially. I would like to visit San Salvador and its university sometime in the future again.
