Wow, this place is a hidden gem for sports lovers. Came here in the winter (I mean summer here), weather was great, beaches are great, the golf courses are fantastic and they have clay court tennis. My sport is track and field and I was able to use the fantastic facilities they have in the local sports stadium. Used a company called CTL Argentina and they organised everything for me including support services. Couldnt spend money there either. A great place to relax during the winter/summer (ha ha)
In Santa Clara del Mar, fishing is like EATING every person who lives there went to fihing sometime or goes actually every weekend.
In fact there are very prepared boats, organized by Fishermen that for $ 50.- (U$S 16.-) take you to 500 km over the sea.
Its a Good option if you like this kind of activity. It´s not my idea of "having FUN", but...
Equipment: All you have to bring is a good HAT, beacuse the sun has no mercy in the middle of the sea...
Everything else, is taken by the Fisherman.
A wide range of fishing spots and a large number of fish species offer fishing lovers the possibility to enjoy a seaside landscape surrounded by a great city and imposing hills.
Argentina´s reputation as a top fishing spot is well-deserved and therefore sport fishermen will really enjoy practising their favourite sport.
Mar del Plata is the centre for water recreation and should be the first stop for anyone interested in 47 km (29 miles) of beaches with a wide range of services to practice water sports such as surfing, long boarding, wakeboarding, body boarding, windsurfing, kayaking, yachting and scuba diving.
For those who love golf, the royal and ancient game is a way of life.
Every golfer relishes the challenge of new and different courses, and in Mar del Plata there is a great opportunity to seek them out.
Mar del Plata manages 5 golf courses almost all of which are pay and play.
