CM visits Mar del Plata to support Gay Tourism

Carlos Melia will be visiting the city of Mar del Plata (MDQ) to support the development of International and Regional Tourism to this beautiful beach destination located only 05 hours – by bus – and 30 minutes – by plane – away  from the city of Buenos Aires.

Located on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean in the Buenos Aires Province, 400 km (249 mi) south of Buenos Aires. The name “Mar del Plata” had apparently the sense of “sea of the Río de la Plata region”. Mar del Plata is one of the major fishing ports and the biggest seaside beach resort in Argentina.

Also during this four days I will be reviewing and checking out multiple Restaurants, Clubs and Bars. Some of the attractions scheduled by Fernando Rizzi involve Diving with Sharks at the Aquarium, hiking, Paragliding among many other. So stay tuned. !!!
