If you love seeing lobo marinos, walruses to many people, in their natural habitat, then this is the place to visit. Some might complain about the smell, but that is nothing compared to being able to see such incredible animals so close and in a natural location. It is free and you can take photos.

I really enjoyed visiting this site. The sea lions are interesting creatures and it is nice to see them in nature not in a zoo. We made the mistake of parking too early and had to walk about 1km on not great sidewalks to get there. You can drive the whole way to this site.

Nature may be smelly and so is this attraction. But who cares about this detail when the prize is being close to sea lions in their natural habitat? Worth a stopover on your visit to the Port of Mar del Plata or as a destination in itself.

It's a special place to see those sealions lying on the beach and not in a zoo!! You can also have a great view of mar del plata coast! Though the place is a bit dirty and smelly!
