I nearly forgot to post about this. There is this part when young(er) Magneto goes after Shaw (the villain) and supposedly, Shaw is hiding in Villa Gesell, Argentina.
This is where Magneto lands:

And this is what the real Villa Gesell (the beach side area, where the nearest mountain is perhaps 1,000 km away) looks like:

Yep, suffice to say, the Villa Gesell of X-Men looks nothing like the beach town where I spent many a childhood vacations. But don’t let Hollywood get in the way of a visually stunning landscape (incidentally, the place they feature as Villa Gesell is actually Bariloche, a ski area around 1,500 km South, in the middle of Patagonia). I guess someone pointed at a map and said “Yeah, somewhere over there; they all look the same anyway”.
