Mar del Plata

Happy City

Drenched in sunshine and fringed by wide expanses of sandy coastline, Mar del Plata stands out as one of Argentina's most popular vacation resorts. During summer weekends, the city's beaches become so crowded that you'll struggle to find a spot on the sand--or even in the water. Nevertheless, Mar del Plata vacations hold a special place in the national mentality, with the resort's long history as a beachside getaway attracting visitors from all over Argentina. A trip to Mar del Plata also ensure a chance to discover a range of cultural attractions, such as museums and tango performances.
