Best time to visit Argentina

Discover how to beat the crowds and still get the weather in Argentina.

Some of the most memorable travel experiences the world has to offer are to be found in Argentina.

Getting your timing right is crucial, though – who wants to walk around Buenos Aires in the rain?

Here’s a guide to the peak times to travel.

Best time to visit Argentina

September to November.

Why?

Spring descends on Argentina between September and November. Temperatures in Buenos Aires are comfortable at this time of year and the skies are blue over Iguazu Falls. Travel at this time of year and you’ll also miss the crowds that flood the beach resorts between December and January.


Overview

Spring temperatures rise to around 15-21℃ in Buenos Aires, making exploring and indulging in the pavement cafe culture comfortable. It’s a little hotter in Iguazu Falls at this time of year, which makes taking a boat trip to the base of the falls all the more refreshing.

Best time to visit Argentina for...

  • Best time for wine: The wine harvest begins in the Mendoza region at the end of November. If you want to do more than tastings and winery tours, make sure you’re here in March when carnival-style celebrations are held.
  • Best time for glaciers: The lion’s share of tourists tend to head to Glacier Perito Moreno National Park between November and February when the sun is shining. Inevitably, this pushes prices up. You can often experience nice weather in March and April, but it’s not guaranteed.
  • Hiking and sightseeing: There’s no poor time for sightseeing and hiking though if we had to choose the best, the winter months of July and August are most ideal as winters are never harsh (unless you’re heading quite far south) and are pleasant for walking around in.
