Playa Florida - Beach Rosario - Argentina

Playa Florida and the surrounding areas are an important part of the Rosario experience. On sunny afternoons, bikini clad locals cover the riverside beach in flocks. Playa Florida has palm-thatched umbrellas to shade those bathers who have gotten a bit too much sun, and other amenities—for a small entry fee. To the south of this beach is Rambla La Catalunya, another stretch of sand with just as much sun and luscious water to dip into, but for free. At night the crowds in Florida area don't disappear, they head to the bars and discos for late night beach fun.
