  • My favorite place in the city to take a few mates watching the sea. Occasionally, if you pay attention, you can see a whale a few meters from the coast.

  • many times I went with my kids like that too and night of truth is a place to be seen and see the sea is the place.

  • Ideal to spend a while enjoying the landscape and the sea... The kids can play and some mates can be taken in the afternoon, pity has no games for children, the beautiful view...

  • Beautiful view. Nice place to walk and enjoy the ocean view.
  • Bellisimo
  • Great spot to drink some 'mates' with friends.
  • It's very nice to sit to drink mate in one of the slopes of the Park San Martín with the wide and beautiful view of the sea. The grass is always taken care of and the place is clean. If you are looking for a green option for chat, take mate or read, this park offers more privacy and better hygiene conditions than other parts of the city very come less.

  • Because for me it is the best view of mar del plata! Always well kept Park. Full of flowers and seems like an amphitheatre. Excellent place
