La Plata’s main sights are all within walking distance of each other.


La Plata's sights can easily be visited on a day trip from Buenos Aires, but its worth considering staying over to sample the city's nightlife. You'll find a good range of sleeping options in the city center, from friendly hostels to comfortable budget guesthouses to charming boutique hotels. When there's a concert at the Estadio Ciudad, the city's accommodations get booked up months in advance.


From traditional neighborhood bars to hip new burger joints, you'll find a range of eateries within easy walking distance of La Plata's main sights.

Drinking & Nightlife

There's no shortage of watering holes and cafes dotted around the city center. Further afield, a 10-minute taxi ride from the center in the bohemian neighborhood of Meridiano V, you'll find several bars and live-music venues, plus theater, cinema and cultural centers catering to university students.
