This section is dedicated to take away all your "I wish someone had told me that before I went!" experiences. This way, you can spend less time settling in, and more time making new friends in your chosen hostel. We share our insider knowledge of tips, tricks and important things to look out for in Mar del Plata.
Mar del Plata is one of the most popular cities on the east Argentinean coast, where the Atlantic Ocean bathes its shores. Mar del Plata is a modern, highly populated city, offering all the comforts to spend the most wonderful time during your visit to Argentina. At first sight, the city gives you the impression of power, elegance, and glamour. A short walk by the coast will tell you that is not just an impression.
Mar del Plata always has something interesting to offer. The weather is very warm in summer, allowing visitors to enjoy the sandy beaches. However, many tourists choose to visit Mar del Plata in winter months. During this time, the city has also many options for its visitors. The city center, near the beach, has restaurants, shopping malls, and souvenir shops where it is possible to get typical Argentinean products (for example, high-quality leather products). The casino, also located at the city center, is another option for tourists. When the weather is not good enough to enjoy the beach, many tourists choose to visit the port. There, beside the view of the ships and the small fishing boats, visitors will find many restaurants offering mainly seafood dishes, which are very popular and usually available at low prices.
For those with a low budget who want to stay in the city, there are many affordable Mar del Plata hostels that are either close to the beach or distributed around the city. Despite the luxurious look of the city, you will find economic prices for meals and accommodation, especially if you prefer to stay in Mar del Plata hostels.
