  • The port of Mar del Plata is a site that should visit Yes or Yes. It is very picturesque to see fishermen do their job, the types of boats and lps characteristic sea lions diatintos. It also has a great variety of restaurants serving fresh seafood products. There are also local to the public where canned fish and seafood, souvenirs and fresh fish can be bought. You can go by car and pay the parking which is a contribution to the Red Cross or several bus lines that connect it to the Center and South of the city.
