Take a stroll through Parque Gral San Martin, a large city park and a good place to soak up authentic local culture.

  • Beautiful view of Playa Grande... One of the most beautiful of Mar del Plata and typical postcards. To walk or sit and enjoy the sea and the landscape... In summer a little too crowded...
