    all mar del plata we like, out of season, each beach has its charm, but in reality for us m.del silver is hiking, gourmet food. rest and good hotels, which can take days of week access to best prices, if weekend or 3 days is not enough for a stroll and enjoy the place with little grnte, recommended if you can not go holidays.
