Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

Buenos Aires is a year round destination although October through to April is considered the best time to visit as temperatures are warmer. January is the hottest month with an average temperature of 25°C (76°F) and the coldest is July at 12°C (53°F).

Southern Patagonia is best visited from November to March when temperatures are milder but visitors should be prepared for strong winds and changeable weather at any time. It is worth considering traveling outside this time, especially rewarding in April (for autumn colors) or October (for spring flowers) because winds can drop significantly and there are fewer visitors in the National Parks. May to September is winter and many hotels in Southern Patagonia close for the season.

Santiago is a year-round destination but the most pleasant months to visit are October to April.
