    A nice place to visit in family
    My family and I spend there a whole day. It's a wonderful place to go with the family, specially with kids, because we could see the sea lions sleeping along the port. My son was astonished! We enjoyed a trip by catamaran and took a lot of photos of the seashore! Then we had a wonderful meal at a seafood restaurant where we ate a delicious paella. The view of the sea at the afternoon was gorgeous, the water turns into orange due to the sunset and it is one of the most incredible views of this place.

    Ayer, hoy y Siempre el Puerto
    Siempre me pregunté por que cada vez que voy a Mar del Plata, terminabamos en el Puerto. Con la infinidad de opciones y atractivos que año tras año incorpora la ciudad balnearia mas hermosa de Argentina. Con dias de sol o dias nublados culminábamos pidiéndoles autografos a los dos lobos marinos. A esta altura mas cercanos a ser "ciudadanos ilustres" que animales en busca de alimento. Se puede adquirir pescado, pero hay lugares mejores, es posible sentarse a degustar frutos de mar, aunque hay otras variantes en la ciudad. Entretenerse es la consigna, sacar algunas fotos y volver al auto o utilizar el transporte publico que te deja perfectamente en el lugar. En fin la respuestas a mi interrogante la dará cada uno y eso es lo mas valioso de Poder Elegir.

    Parada obligada en la ciudad
    No ir al puerto de la ciudad y no ver las embarcaciones típicas, pararse a comer un buen pescado en la zona de los locales comerciales y luego ir a la escollera a ver los lobos marinos es como no ir a la ciudad. Disfrutar de este paseo.

The port used to be a famous attraction in mar del plata, a must go. However after not being there for 5 years, I went again this december. The port is abandoned, full of dirt and quite dangerous. There are 3 parts to it:
1) The restaurants: The restaurants are nice, not cheap at all but good for a family meal. Be aware of the power shortage. When I went there, the restaurants didn't have electricity so I became very suspicious about how they keep the food fresh...
2)The port itself: VERY dirty and dangerous. Don't even think of going at night
3) the sea lions: good if you've never seen one. However they should keep the place where they live clean.

anything to get tourists into spending mode, the port is pretty boring, but good for a post card image and some raba and fries, the local bus is only a buck round trip, so you can't lose

Great restaurants with seafood as specialties. It's lively in the evening During the day you can watch the fisherman going out early in AM & bring back the catch of the day Shrimp & fish are abundant in the area.

The harbor is as it looks in the pictures, orange ships coming back from the fishing expedition plus a nice central road with nice stores. And you can eat fantastic food in very informal places by the harbor! worth an half day trip (2 hours without lunch)

Very nice place to visit and watch the local fishermen bring in their daily catch. However, the smell was very very strong and it was difficult to stay for any length of time. Even from the main road the smell was too strong to stay for any length of time.

Nice for a visit in a cloudy day and also if you stay in Mar del Plata in a place with kitchen, so you can buy seafood.

Within reasonably easy walking distance from the Sheraton Hotel in Alem, the port is a must see for every visitor to MDP at least ONCE in their lives. The fishing boats moored at anchor tend to be quite photogenic while the nearby seafood restaurant area has much to offer even if the modern ´mall style´restaurants are not quite as charming as the original eating places from days of yore.

Nice attraction for one of those typical unwelcoming summer days in Mar del Plata. And also great for picture-spot seekers all over the year.
The port has a well known section where one can enjoy really fresh fish at reasonable prices (well this last point will depend on the restaurant chosen)
Do not miss the sea wolves colony, an attraction in itself. But careful. Their smell may be too strong, especially after lunch!

Nice to see all those - 400- boats set in a row. Got to see a sealion, once in a while they appear. Prepare for the stinky seafish smell.

Again a place for fish restaurants of general mediocrity. A bit overpriced and service is average. A lot of restaurants do not take credit cards as a lot of the customers who go there do not have them.
