Argentina is a country that you can travel in all year round. The best time to visit Buenos Aires is in spring (September through November), when the jacarandas are in bloom and temperatures are blissfully cool, and in autumn (March through May). Summer (December through February) in the capital can be hot and humid. Mendoza, Córdoba and the Lake District are all spectacular in autumn: the leaves put on an epic display, temperatures are comfortable and the crowds are thin. The best time to go to Patagonia is when the weather’s milder (September through April). Northern Argentina can be brutally hot in summer and is best visited in spring, winter (June through August) and autumn.
