  • It's not cheap though, at around AR$13,000 + VAT at 21% per night for a cabin at Punta Cerezo, Carilo, so we're looking for something cheaper. Maybe Mar de las Pampas.

    I certainly wouldn't be paying those prices. I'd rather just go to Europe. The MIL's neighbour who is a doctor has just returned from Spain with her sister. They go on a hand baggage fare only, buy suitcases when there and fill 'em with lots of shopping. They reckon the money saved paid for the holiday!! She asked my missus the other day if she wanted to buy some suitcases. ^^

  • Completely agree. The beach-forest mix is scenic and has the added benefit of bringing songbirds to the mix.

    Still not convinced. Mind you, the Scottish coastline has everything so it's no wonder I'm hard to please. The weather is dodgy right enough. ^^

  • Hmmmm...still not convinced. I suspect if we lived in Buenos Aires my thoughts would be very different though.

    I'm not sure I understand how your thoughts would be different?

    Yes, I know what you mean: the crazy prices are definitely a challenge 😔

    I've come several times to Cariló during my childhood, now I live here full time, and I am still amazed by the surroundings; have you visited the hummingbird's garden?

  • On of our trips back from Mar del Plata we drove past the whole coastal beach towns so much advertised as summer holiday destinations. Cariló is definitely the poshiest, with several nice shops in the middle of it (although parking is a pain in summer and it becomes too crowded). I liked the big mansions in the wood (which is not a natural forest, it was planned), however the prices are for a family of 10 (or several families) so they are well over our budget.


    I liked the feeling of Valeria del Mar. Still not too big and developed like the other places and hopefully not so expensive.


    A place where I liked it was Sierra de los Padres, about 30 km from Mar del Plata. It is not on the coast but there is Laguna de los Padres nearby, with woods and fields, horses, and some water sports activities. However, coming all the way from Buenos Aires and stopping right before the sea seems sort of pointless. It is a long drive from Capital.


    I am not sure how to add a google map, but here it is!

  • Yes, Cariló it's a man-made forest. And yes, several families rent one home: I've seen up to 5 cars parked in front of a house, and it wasn't even a huge mansion! It's a pity accommodation prices are so high here because, although tourists keep coming, they have hardly any money left to dine out or to buy souvenirs; that means shopkeepers can't benefit from tourism, really


    No! Have never ever heard of the hummingbird garden, but it sounds delightful.
