Best Time to Visit Argentina
Argentina is a great year-round destination, depending on where you want to go, but December to March allows for the easiest access to the popular Patagonia region in the south, while September-November are great if you prefer a cooler environment in Buenos Aires, and the autumnal colors of the wine valley in March and April are marvelous.

The travel seasons in Argentina are generally considered:
  • High season (prices & tourism at its peak): Late November-February & July
  • Shoulder season: September-November & March-May
  • Low season: June & August
 
  • Best time to visit Buenos Aires
    • For a refreshingly crisp climate and moderate prices in Buenos Aires, September to November and April to June are the best times to visit. While January to February is the high tourist season in Buenos Aires, it is also accompanied by crowded streets, high prices, high temperatures, and muggy weather.
 
  • Best time to visit the wine valleys around Mendoza
    • March and April are the seasons when the foliage is in its stunning and colorful transition, especially in the Lake District/ wine valley region of the country, where visitors will see whimsically copper and gold vines and brilliant shades of orange in the beech groves.

  • Best time to visit Patagonia
    • The best time to visit the wind-swept Patagonia region is from December to February (winter). Because this is the high season, tour prices also tend to be more expensive during these months.
 
  • Best time to visit the beaches
    • Argentina’s hot summer runs from December to January and has perfect beach weather.
 
  • Best time to visit ski resorts
    • The Argentine winter extends from June to August, meaning that many beaches are closed but the mountain ski resorts are open for business.
