On the Buenos Aires coast, the undisputed classic is one and only one: Mar del Plata.
Classics are classics for a reason. There may be fashionable places, places that are becoming more and more consolidated over the years in the preferences of tourism, but the true classics are always valid. On the Buenos Aires coast, the undisputed classic is one and only one: Mar del Plata. For decades, thousands of Argentines from different parts of the country continue arriving to this beautiful city to enjoy their summers and -also- some winters. It so happens that Mar del Plata has everything a big city has to offer, mixed with the power of the sea air that makes anything infinitely better. Ojotas, towels and bathing suits, yes, but also great avenues, theaters, casinos and shopping malls. In Mardel it is impossible to get bored. Just walking along the Rambla, enjoying the street artists and taking a picture with the sea lions is a great plan. Or go see the others, the real ones, and spy on them for a while in their lazy routine. A lunch or dinner at the port, for those who love fish and seafood, is everything and much more. An afternoon of mates and churros on the beach, a stroll through the Peralta Ramos Forest, a stroll along the San Martín pedestrian street or through Güemes: Mar del Plata is full of small big plans that make your stay unforgettable. They don't nickname it "La Feliz" for nothing.
