Summertime in Mar del Plata and surroundings

In February I checked out the biggest seaside resort of Argentina, Mar del Plata and the surroundings. Mar del Plata is the seventh biggest city of the country, but during summertime the number of its inhabitants bumps up to double, and becomes one of the busiest and craziest city along the Atlantic Ocean. Check out what the Pampa has for you there!
