“Typical southern South American harbour”

Puerto de Mar del Plata
Reviewed January 13, 2013

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.

Gross area and trash everywhere. Plus down the pier where you can look out over the water it smells like urine-obviously it's the unofficial toilet for the fisherman who hang out down there. Could be so much more.

A few restaurants, many "tourist", plus a few local restaurants a block away. We lucked out and found an excellent family one, specializing in seafood, with good food, huge portions and a nice, local feel.

In those red and yellow wooden little ships, brave Marplatense fishermen, most of them of Italian descent, defy every day the unpredictable sea. The huge statue of the Savior at the end of the Southern Pier (Escollera Sur) testifies for their faith. An important colony of sea lions, located inside the Port, provides individuals which can be seen near the boats and in the docks, not afraid of people. Good seafood in the restaurants nearby, and lots of souvenir shops.

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.
