Two more beach towns

The tiny beach town of Balneario San Cayetano, which is not even found on google maps, is set at the edge of the dunes. Only a few blocks to wander with easy access to endless beach. Camping within a walk to the shore.

Claromecó Playa and the museum lighthouse is our last Buenos Aires Province beach stop.

Cordon del Plata

Piedras Grandes at 3550m is the last stop before the high peaks.

The Las Veguitas meadows. In the summer very green and a popular valley to tent before hiking the region. The entire Cordon del Plata is important for acclimatization and training by providing accessible 4000-5900 meter peaks.
