Big and beautiful Argentina is located down way down south in Latin America and occupies an enormous amount of space, living up to its title of the being the 8th largest country in the world. This large country with its diverse regions, latitudes, and altitudes, has wide array of climates during the years’ seasons and is probably the reason why Argentina is known to have some of the best, and most mild, climates in all of South America.
Argentina is in the Southern Hemisphere which means:
September to November is Spring
December to January is Summer
March to May is Fall
June to August in Winter
What is so fantastic about the weather in Argentina?
Its climate is as diverse as its many regions, therefore making it the perfect country to travel in all year long since no matter what month you find yourself there you can find a region and a climate that suits you and your travel preferences.
It is important when traveling to Argentina that you know what season you are coming in to and which seasons you will experience in relation to where you are traveling in the country. Depending on the length of travel, you may have to bring anything from shorts and flip flops to a winter jacket and rain gear.
Before you pack your bags, take a look at the regions and their climates below to get a better idea of what you are in for.
Buenos Aires & Around
In this region, which also includes cities like Mar del Plata, Santa Rosa and Bahia Blanca, the weather is fairly mild all year long and extreme conditions almost never occur. The winters tend to bring some rain, but not in excessive amounts, and below freezing temperatures are rare. Summers in this area are some of the best in Argentina (you can see the evidence in the crowds of people flocking to the beach during January and February) as the weather stays warm and sunny with very little rainfall.
Rosario & Iguazu Falls
From Rosario and up to the Iguazu Falls in north eastern Argentina, the climate stays fairly warm all around the year round with the combination of the heat and humidity. At times, winters can see cold spells due to the humidity, but often these do not last for more than a day or so at a time. Summers are wetter than winters but the rain comes in short intervals, so there is still plenty of sun to enjoy along with the warm air.
Cordoba, Mendoza & Salta
Cordoba, Tucuman, and North up to Salta are included in the semi-dry to dry region of Argentina. Winters are fairly mild and temperatures rarely drop near to 0 degrees, whereas the summers are long, hot, and sunny. Cordoba and its surrounding villages are the semi-dry areas, not receiving plenty of rain throughout the year, but still not quite as desert like as Salta. Salta during the winter is mild but extremely hot during the summer, therefore best visited in the fall, spring, or winter time.
Bariloche, El Calafate, & Ushuaia
This area of Argentina, extending way down south to the southernmost city in the world of Ushuaia, is quite dry and typically a much cooler temperature than the rest of the country. During the summer months, the air is dry, the sun warm, and there is a nice cool breeze, however without the sun, the climate can drop rapidly. During the winter, the climate drops well below 0 degrees, glaciers are at their best, and snow can be found on the mountains and higher grounds.
