Sheraton Miramar Hotel & Convention Center 1/1 by Tripoto
Jenny McIver
After a few days in Santiago, I decided to head to the coast to the resort town of Vina del Mar. By early afternoon I had reached my destination, the Sheraton Miramar in Vina del Mar. Perched right on the coast and practically over the sea, the hotel had an exquisite panoramic view of Vina and nearby Valparaiso. Known as the “Garden City”, Vina del Mar is one of the most developed and visited cities in the country. And since I was envisioning a sleepy little beach town, it was much larger than I anticipated. Located on the coast about 120km from Santiago, it had excellent beaches, an outstanding tourist infrastructure, active cultural and social life and a thriving business community.
