Mar del Plata is the most popular tourist destination in Argentina. Located on the Atlantic coast about 404 kilometers from the capital of Buenos Aires, Mar del Plata offers its visitors magnificent beaches, beautiful bays, cliffs and majestic forests that line more than 40 kilometers of coastline. More than eight million tourists visit every year, so it's easy to see that the service sector is the mainstay of the city's economy, but it also has an important agricultural and fishing industry. Points of interest include the Plaza de Colon, the Torreon del Monje, Barrio Los Troncos, Punta Mogotes and the port. At night there are plenty of pubs, bars, discos and the famous Casino Mar de Plata for those who like to enjoy urban nightlife. You can find whatever you're looking for here.
The famous Cerro Catedral ski resort in San Carlos de Bariloche has slopes suitable for all levels surrounded by beautiful scenery. There are various back country tours as well. You can go skiing on the trails or in the woods. It's fun to ski slopes off the beaten path, but that are completely safe. One of my favorite places was La Laguna. There are other activities as well, like hiking, ATVs, snowmobiles and sleds.

Its location and craft fair are very cute since it is a city that in the 70s was filled with hippies and still retains something of the spirit of the movement. The craft beers are unforgettable with a large variety of flavours and the Puelo Lake National Park which is a few miles from Bolsón.
