Balneario

» by in: Nouns

A couple of weeks ago we spent some time on the Atlantic coast of Argentina in Mar del Plata. Along the coastal highway I saw signs pointing out different balnearios. I could not figure out what the word exactly meant, but I gathered it had something to do with a private beach or resort area. The word means spa, but it can also be used to mean a bathing area or resort.

    Besides the meanings that David gave; in Mexico a sign to a “Balneario” could also lead you to a public pool.
