Where to stay in La Plata

Many of La Plata's accommodation options lie within the geometric square of the city core, which plays home to a majority of the town's tourist attractions. The variety of mid-range hotels in the city center keeps prices reasonably low; many of these are located in historic buildings just a few blocks from central Plaza Morena and within easy walking distance to the museum of La Plata, the cathedral, and main road arteries. If you're on a tight budget, consider staying at one of the city center's many hostels; though you'll likely be sharing a room with others in bunk beds, the low prices make them economical options.

  • Visited this museum during my stay in La Plata. It's definitely worth the visit. They have many dinosaur fossils along with Rich culture history of South America.
  • I stumbled upon this museum and I am beyond glad I did! I spent 2 hours inside and wish I had had more time to dedicate exploring the exhibits. All the levels were great but the animal exhibit with taxidermy and skeletal models was mind blowing thorough. I HIGHLY recommend visiting.
  • This is an excelent Museum , you shouldnt miss it if you are visiting BsAs. have a nice collection of Taxidermy , take at least 3 hours of visitation.
  • It was a long time ago. I can't remember anything.
  • I bring my nephews here, a a family of friends. Really intresting, had a great time!
