When to visit Argentina

Argentina has three varying climate systems based on location: the north region, the central region, and the southern region. The warmer months for all regions fall between November and March, as the weather is sunny and dry. However, the level of warmth will depend upon where you are in the country. The north can see highs of 30°C, but the south barely breaks 10°C and can dip as low as -2°C in the winter months. The northern region is great for year-round travel, as its temperatures typically remain humid and tropical, while the central region averages 18°C but faces heavy rain in the winter months of April through October.
