The best time to visit Argentina is generally between December and February when beaches are open and beautiful, ocean temperatures are mild, the crowds are manageable, and the weather is pleasant. Buenos Aires experiences hot weather in January and February, making it uncomfortable for sightseeing or other outdoor activities. The Lake District, Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego are best enjoyed during the months of September through November or between April and May; avoid visiting these areas during summer (December through February) because temperatures will be uncomfortably high.
