I would like to recommend going to Mar del Plata City, 260 miles from Buenos Aires City. You will find a combination of beauty and charm of its natural resources (vast sandy beaches ideal to enjoy summer walks) with the infrastructure and services. Mar del Plata has everything, and even in winter you can enjoy its nightlife, its pubs, discos, sea museums and the famous Casino. I travelled with the services of Kangoo Tours
