When to Travel to Argentina

Argentina is located in the Southern hemisphere, so if you live in the northern hemisphere, the season here is the exact opposite of what you are currently experiencing. The coldest month is July while the warmest is January. We hope that most of you are aware of this, but for those of you who continue to travel down here with shorts and flip-flops in July with your northern hemisphere sunburn, we’ll try not to giggle too much. If the weather is your favorite news segment, and you just want some thermal digits, check these out:

The climate in Argentina varies widely due to the varied terrain you’ll experience in each of the country’s 23 provinces, which provide everything from subtropical in the north to subpolar in the south, and from the plush carpeting of the Palacio Duhau – Park Hyatt in Buenos Aires to the dirt race track of the annual Dakar Rally in rustic Northern Argentina. What this means is that once you get outside of the major cities you are at the mercy of the unpredictable weather that microclimates such as those created when you’re adjacent to the ocean, a 5000 meter-high mountain range or the desert – all of which can be experienced in Argentina!
