In the southern hemisphere the seasons are reversed. Therefore, in Buenos Aires, December – February is the hottest time of the year as this considered summertime. Days are hot and humid with temperatures ranging from 28 – 35 Deg C (80 – 95 Deg F). This is also the most popular time to travel to the city, but it is also when locals head away from town for their own vacations. During the first 2 weeks of January many shops, restaurants and even hotels go on shut down, leaving the city feeling a little empty. June – August is wintertime, and days can be a little chilly and overcast. March – May and Sept – November offer more moderate weather conditions and are good times to travel. Oct – November is when the jacaranda trees are in full bloom and a beautiful time to visit the city. It can rain anytime in Buenos Aires, even during summer when the rain can be torrential!
Mendoza’s long days of sunshine and temperate weather gives a great reason to visit any time of year. However, October – April is when most of the activity happens in the region, from the planting season through until harvest. Spring (October – November) and Fall (March – April) are warm, crisp and bursting with many colors. Day time temperatures are around 20 Deg C (70 Deg F). Summertime (December – March) is when the sun is at its strongest and daytime temperatures can peak around 35 Deg C (95 Deg F). During these months it can also rain heavily, so you’ll need to be prepared with a light rain jacket. Wineries turn their attention to the wine production from March – April.
