When To Go To Argentina
Argentina is a year round destination, spring and autumn being the most pleasant.
Summer - December to February
In most of the areas, it can be hot and humid in the peak summer months.
Salta experiences heavy rains at the end of February.
In Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego, December and January are high season and the glacier trips are at their busiest.
Autumn - March to May
Buenos Aires is most pleasant in Autumn. The Lake District is beautiful in autumn and fresher in these months than during the height of summer. The wine harvest in Mendoza takes place typically early March and is a great time to visit, although bookings should be secured well in advance. Salta sees heavy rains in March when many of the roads to places you'll want to explore may be impassable due to flooding.
Winter - June to August
Winter is usually pretty mild. At Iguazu Falls, this is when rain is mostly likely and the temperatures range from lows of 10°C to high of 23°C.
Salta is warm and dry in winter, and this is a really good time to visit.
Most of Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego is closed for winter, when weather makes the area very inhospitable.
Spring - September to November
Spring brings pleasant weather in most of the regions. The Lake District is beautiful in spring, and fresher in these months than during the height of summer. Salta warm and dry though it gets cold at night. This is a great time to visit Patagonia , when there are fewer crowds, and the weather can still be beautifully mild. September and October are also the best months to visit Peninsula Valdes.
