Best Time to Visit Argentina
Argentina’s diverse and elongated geography gives visitors opportunities to have a different travel menu depending on the season. Being in the Southern Hemisphere, Argentina also allows visitors from the Northern Hemisphere to enjoy a warm Christmas vacation.
Autumn (March –May) and spring (September – November) are the best times to visit Buenos Aires – its summer (December – February) is hot and humid. Autumn is also a very nice time to visit Mendoza, Córdoba and the Lake District. You will enjoy the fall foliage and nice temperature.
It is best to visit Patagonian destinations, such as the Moreno Glacier in Santa Cruz during the summer months (December – February), when the weather is warmer and more travel services are available for visitors. Outside of these few months, travel services are harder to be arranged for Patagonia.
The tropical environment of Iguazu Falls is great to visit year round. It is more pleasant to visit this area during the winter or spring months (June – November) to avoid the heat and humidity. Expect high humidity and temperatures in Jan-Feb.
Ski season opens from mid-June through mid-October, with July and August being the peak (and most expensive) months.
