The seafront town of Porto Belo lies at the base of a peninsula dotted with beaches, bays, and coves, and it has a great reputation among Argentine and Paraguayan tourists for its natural beauty, and water sports. It's a port of call for some of the Buenos Aires–Rio cruise lines. The calm waters of the Porto Belo bay are a haven for scuba diving, snorkeling, sailing, and fishing. When it comes to beaches, Bombas and Bombinhas get crowded in the summer months, while Mariscal Beach is a quieter option. With just one main road in and out of the peninsula, the traffic can slow right down in peak season.
