Plaza Colon, Mar del Plata

(3.3/5 based on 500+ 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.

  • This very cute, too bad that it is still dirty even when there are so many people in April. And waters dancing in a week I saw never running!

  • It is a beautiful place that occupies 4 apples, with abundant trees, lawns and streets that cross it in every way, is the access of many into the sea between the Casino building and the Hotel Provincial. There every year is celebrated the failure of Valencia, and there is a spacious venue where classical fritters, are sold until the night in which burns the representation that the artist has done over this year. In the basement, it has a major garage. Surrounded by shops, bars and restaurants, also it is a nice viewpoint from those places.
