Valeria del Mar, Argentina

If you’re wondering why all the mom and pop shops in Buenos Aires are closed throughout January and February it’s because they’re all at the beach for summer vacation.  And it’s very possible they’re at Valeria del Mar, one of the top beach destinations for us city folks.

Churros (amongst many other things) are sold fresh from the locals pacing up and down the shore.  They’re the perfect companion for a hot mate while you sizzle in the sun.

Make sure you bring loads of sunblock, and an umbrella if possible.  There is ZERO shade.

The best part of the trip.  Fried calamari (rabas), provenzal style.
