Argentina Tours Travel Tips

  • Most people speak only Spanish, so knowing a few words and phrases helps navigate the country. Some of the busy tourist areas, hotels, and guides speak English to assist you.
  • Bring a jacket. Argentina has varied weather patterns – one day, it might be warm and sunny, and the next day cool and rainy. Be sure to check the weather before heading out every day.
  • Make sure you're prepared for some of the high elevation destinations in Argentina. Elevation sickness is common, but there are many ways to remedy the illness, so you still have a chance to explore these regions.
  • Use cash. Most places outside of Buenos Aires and other developed cities predominantly use the Argentine Pesos. Street vendors and markets also strictly use cash.
  • Avoid flashy clothing and jewelry when traveling around Argentina to not attract unwanted attention.

Argentina Tours When To Visit

Quick Facts

The best time to visit Argentina is during the spring or the fall seasons. Keep in mind that Argentina is in the southern hemisphere, so its seasons are reversed. In general, Argentina has a temperate climate, remaining cool and dry year-round. However, it's a large country and features a variety of temperature differences depending on the region. The southern Andes region is the coldest due to the high elevations, while the northern region is the hottest, especially during the summer.

  • Spring – October to December – Best Season

    The best time to visit Argentina is during the spring. It avoids the extreme temperatures found during the summer or winter, giving tourists a more moderate climate to enjoy for their trip. Spring is the most beautiful time in the country when the flowers bloom – it's the best time to explore the great natural sights.

  • Summer – January to March – Low Season

    Many travelers avoid visiting Argentina during the summer because of the hot weather, especially in the north. Temperatures average between 90°F-100°F, so outdoor activities are unfavorable.

  • Fall – April to June – Best Season

    Fall is an alternative season to visit in Argentina. It's an off-peak season, so travel prices are better and popular destinations less crowded during the Fall. One of the most popular things to do during the Fall is to explore the wine region – Fall is harvest time for the grapes for producing fresh wine.

  • Winter – July to September – Peak Season
