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

    Located on the seafront in Playa Grande, one of the most traditional of Mar del Plata, offers us to enjoy hiking, drink mate and share evenings or mornings in company with a unique and privileged sea landscape. From the Park, which is located in a high place, you can see very modern buildings as well as also to other vessel entering or leaving the port. and also boats that sail through my beautiful blue sea.

    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.
