Good spot - Was in Mar Del Plata in January. Caught good swell. Yacht was crowded but a solid head high and fun. Good fun rippable wave. Best winds are south and southwest and best swell direction is south! Beautiful girls on the beach. Water quite cold at 63 Farenheit. Needed a 3/2 wetsuit. Dollar exchange: 1 dollar= 3 argentine pesos. Great food and nightlife! I would go back sometime!

torreon del monje... - a todos los que olvidaron una de las mejores derechas de la argentina, a esos politicos que pusieron esas escolleras y metros de playas inservibles que mataron la ola...apagaron un poquito la luz del surf argentino, desde california no me queda otra que decir que una de las mejores olas de la argentina junto a Cabo Corrientes, ya no existen...
