Mar del Plata has an oceanic climate with humid and moderate summers and relatively cool winters. March marks the end of summer and beginning of fall. The average temperature in Mar del Plata in March for a typical day ranges from a high of 72°F (22°C) and a low of 60°F (15°C). The city is exposed both to outbreaks of cold air of Antarctic origin and to invasions of hot air of tropical origin, therefore it is subject to sudden changes in temperature.


Being Mar del Plata one of the most important touristic cities of Argentina, connections by bus, train and plane are easy from most of the cities, particularly from Buenos Aires. There are direct daily flights from Ministro Pistarini International Airport, so people arriving from abroad can connect from there to Mar del Plata. There are direct figths also from the Jorge Newbery international airport, close to the Buenos Aires downtown, as well as shuttle buses from both airports


More than 500 hotels, hostels and private accommodations are available in the city. Hotels, Bed and breakfast and hostels ranging from 5 to 2 stars are available at walking distance from the venue.
