Surf Camp Argentina is located in Mar del Plata, a city on the Atlantic coast, 400 km south of Buenos Aires.

Mar del Plata is one of the major fishing ports and the biggest seaside beach resort in Argentina. It is popularly known as 'Ciudad Feliz', the happy city, and is the perfect combination of charming culture, beautiful nature and high quality infrastucture.

Cliffs, ravines, dunes and long beaches are ready for enjoying the sun and a whole range of nautical sports. Some of the most outstanding attractions in the city are the Colon Square, the Torreen del Monje (The Tower of the Monk), Los Troncos neighbourhood and the Harbor.

Nightlife in Mar del Plata has plenty of alternatives: pubs, discos, casino and bingos are ready to receive the most demanding tourists.
