Mar del Plata
Argentina’s original and most lively beach resort is known throughout the country for the hordes that flock here as the mercury begins to soar. Every summer, serious crowds of international and local tourists descend on the sands of Mar del Plata to soak up some sun, before hitting an endless array of chic restaurants and bars after dark. It’s not exactly a tranquil destination, so consider going elsewhere if peace and quite is the primary objective. Plenty of activities like scuba, golf, fishing and sailing help compensate for the crowds.
