Plaza Colon, Mar del Plata
(3.8/5 based on 460 reviews on the web)
The iconic green space of Plaza Colon serves as a meetingplace for locals. Conveniently located near the beach and casino, the plaza has become an important social space within the city. Take a walk around the square to meet some locals, or browse through the shops that offer handcrafted souvenirs. In the evenings, a water-and-lights show takes place on the large fountain. Several statues memorializing Argentinians can be found in the plaza as well. As with most cities, be careful with your belongings and watch for pickpockets.
