Sierra de Los Padres is a small town in the hill 15miles away from Mar del Plata. Very nice to buy some souvenirs, eat something or making a picnic! Wonderful view! Also, There is a Lagoon close there called "Laguna de los Padres".

An interesting day trip from MdelP if you are visiting for a week or more and want to see a bit of countryside. Note it will be hotter than the seaside--hats & sunscreen essentially if you are going to walk around the lake. Pick up the useful little map & 717 bus schedule from the tourist info centre in the...

Very peaceful place and amazing landscapes. I made very beautiful pictures from there and I was amazed to see the diverse fauna and flora, horses running freely, migrating birds, it all felt like in a movie ! I wish I can visit again in the future !

While visiting this gorgeous place I had the chance of having long walks and incredible photos. There was not a lot of people, which I loved and the connection with nature is amazing. I really recommend this visit.

Hacia 5 años que no iba a Laguna y me sorprendió verla tal cual! Lo único malo es que sacaron las barreras que no permitían a los vehículos ingresar a los bosquecitos y estando adentro nos encontramos que una persona se había metido con su moto, logrando solamente asustar a las aves que viven allí... / I hadn't been to...
