Pinamar is a famed seaside beach resort for the intelligentsia in Buenos Aires. Located about 5 hours from Buenos Aires on Argentina’s Atlantic Coast, Pinamar is famous as the destination of pine trees and beaches. In fact, the place is so clean and well-planned that they turned the sand dunes into pine forests, if you can believe that. But they still have vast beaches filed with sand dunes and plenty of water sports, boating and even shark fishing. Pinamar enjoys a pretty good nightlife with happening clubs and discos, and nature lovers or adventurous tourists have plenty of things they will like too. You will need to get a car for hire in Pinamar if you intend to see all the sights.
You can start with the railway station and Tuyu Museum. Plaza San martin is a must-visit spot, and so is the Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish Church. Assuming you have already got a car for rent in Pinamar, you will surely be visiting General Madariaga Square where you will find the town hall. The iron milestone at José Hernández Square has some historic significance, so you might want to pencil in this one as well. Do not miss a look-see at Juan Anchorena Park, which is greenest place in town and offers all kinds of recreation.
If you get a powerful 4-wheel drive which can bull through sand, water and forest, then you are about to enjoy what is probably going to be the best holiday experience of your life. Drive for an hour through the pine and eucalyptus forests and the soft sand and streams surrounding the town and you reach resorts like La Frontera and El Límite. You can go horseback-riding and try out ATVs here. More importantly, this is where visitors can do sand boarding on the sand dunes. Some people here are so good at it that they can "surf" the dunes without having to climb up a dune.
If you are visiting La Frontera, then it is just a short hop to the sea and seaside resorts lined up along the coast after Pinamar including Mar de Ajó, La Lucila del Mar, Mar del Tuyú and San Clemente del Tuyú. On the other side of Pinamar are beach resorts that are just as much fun, including Valeria del Mar, Villa Gesell and Mar Azul.
There are two agencies providing a car rental in Pinamar for travelers in the Pinamar City/Downtown area. Many hotels have tie-ups with these agencies, so you can ask for pick-ups and drop-offs at your hotel. To choose the best deal available, compare the agencies online and book your vehicle right now.
