Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: Check out the beaches and change money at the official rate when you arrive.

Liked: The historical center made for an interesting walk. Although small, the lighthouse and surrounding streets were fun to explore. There are also some nice beaches in the area and the sunset is one of the better ones I have seen.

Disliked: Not that I disliked this, but I had been lead to believe that there would be more to do by guidebooks and people who had been before. It is also a very expensive place for someone using Argentine pesos in the summer time.
