It is situated by the Atlantic Ocean, south of Buenos Aires. It has a picturesque fishing harbour and a great variety of beaches and forests. Moreover, it has a large commercial centre familiar with tourism from all over the world. Around Mar del Plata are some of Argentina's most productive lands, with record yields of corn, wheat, meat and sunflower.
