Nature / Park
Take a stroll through Parque Gral San Martin, a large city park and a good place to soak up authentic local culture. Take in the view of the Playa Grande beach and the harbor or wander over to the statue of General San Martin to snap some photos. There are some interesting old villas and houses around the perimeter of the park that are worth seeking out. Across the street, sample some delicious churros from a local vendor.

  • Beautiful view. Nice place to walk and enjoy the ocean view.
  • Bellisimo
  • Great spot to drink some 'mates' with friends.
  • It is a beautiful park built according to the landscape of the stone off the coast. I suggest visiting at different times of the day, its beauty and lighting stands out as a postcard of the city.

  • Beautiful park and ride. The best scenery of Mar del Plata. Too bad that has been allowed to build all those buildings that take away the sunlight in a city with such cold weather.
