A working port with mainly orange fishing trawlers. Lovely picture. There are some sea lions around trying to get food from the boats and some sunbathing on the pier. Plenty of shops and places to eat.

This wasn't worth the cab ride from downtown Mar del Plata. The boats and sea lions are what you would expect, smell and all. It's a working port so expect for a few run down souvenir stands, it's not really set up for tourists. You...More
