For some time, we were fortunate to have friends who let us stay in their apartment that's just half a block from the Varese Beach, outside peak season (late October and November). It's a time of year when you can really experience the fantastic Mar del Plata since it's normally full of people during the summer. Our accommodation is a charming and new apartment, with a very pretty room and a bedroom with sea view. It's arranged tastefully and the fact that it's just a few blocks from downtown and seaside, gives it a special bonus. If you want to walk to downtown, passing by the Tower of the Monk, which is only two blocks away, you'll be almost at Plaza Colón and from there you go to the streets of San Martin and Belgrano, just a step away. The location is ideal because you can walk everywhere!
