With a thermal temperature of 4° and sunny skies, thousands of tourists took to the streets of Mar del Plata yesterday on this extra-long weekend, thus enjoying walks along the coast, good gastronomy, shopping, recreational and cultural activities for adults and Boys.

Those who arrived in the “happy city” on Friday found themselves with a few days of cold, wind and rain, but yesterday the panorama was very different and there was no impediment for them to carry out different activities with the purpose of distracting themselves and getting out of the work routine.

Among the proposals that received a large number of visitors, in addition to the classic circuits along the coast or by the sea, were the José Hernández Museum, located at kilometer 14.5 of Route 226. There is the permanent exhibition in which objects about the first inhabitants of the region, rural stories, the first tolderías and the missions stand out. In the Provincial Museum of Contemporary Art MAR, meanwhile, the documentary “Viejas que hierven” is presented, by the filmmaker Violeta Tapia, which investigates female sensitivity and sexuality in old age with free admission.

Meanwhile, in the Unzué Cultural Space there are different activities for all ages. Every day from 2:00 p.m. there is music, shows, games, collective shops of the popular and social economy, a gastronomic patio and guided tours of this beautiful building, an icon of Mar del Plata history, with its beautiful Neo-Byzantine-style Chapel. The Unzué is a Space for the Promotion of Rights of the National Secretariat for Children, Adolescents and Family that is part of the Ministry of Social Development of the Nation.

For the youngest members of the family, a good option is the Museum of Natural Sciences located in Plaza España, where a large-volume marine aquarium was inaugurated with native fish from the Atlantic Coast and spaces were recovered for the exhibition of birds and mammals and a renewed diorama of mountain environments.

Yesterday, in addition, those who arrived in Mar del Plata took the opportunity to shop and buy a gift for dad on his day, that’s why the open-air shops located on Güemes, Alem, Juan B. Justo, Rivadavia, San Juan and the traditional San Martín promoted coats, chocolates, drinks and leather goods in their windows with significant discounts with credit cards ranging from 20 to 30%.

good occupancy

Of course, Mar del Plata was not the only destination chosen for this XL weekend: all the regions of the country reported very good levels of hotel reservations, as well as land and air transport, to the point that long-distance buses, for the first time time since the start of the pandemic, they operated 100% of their destinations, according to a report by the tourist chambers and the companies in the sector.

Most of the hub destinations in each region were at around 90% or more of hotel bookings. According to the Federation of Tourism Chambers of the Argentine Republic, the ten best-selling destinations are Córdoba, Puerto Iguazú, Mendoza, San Carlos de Bariloche, Salta, Ushuaia, San Miguel de Tucumán, Neuquén, El Calafate and Comodoro Rivadavia.

From the tourism chambers they pointed out that “the demand for travel and tourism in Argentina continues to recover”, and specified that “all the regions reported very good levels of hotel occupancy for this extra-long weekend, as well as land and air transport They reported a positive impact.”
