Plaza Colon, Mar del Plata

3.3
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.

  • I stopped being the Green promenade from the Centre to become a popular solarium, where nobody respects the most minimum decency, people lying on the beds, the gardens are transformed into tennis soccer, trash everywhere, broken cans, impossible to find a decent Bank, place to avoid without a doubt...

  • For some years now the Plaza Colón lost magic. Even though it is clean, and that highly values, lost much of its woodland or at least the attention that got him and that is notice. At night it is very dark since surely save the lights go off, but it becomes dangerous. During the day and into the evening there is a sector of games and a very cute carousel, and games are noted well maintained, although I'm powerfully the attention a block of gypsum to the floor at the end of the slide, in which the guys can hit , and ugly, if they fall ill (photo attached). On the other hand it is a square with a lot of movement since the vast majority of the "trains of the joy" of Mar del Plata leave from there.
