For residents in the northern hemisphere, Argentina offers the inviting possibility of enjoying two summers in the same year, but due to its great variety and elongated geography, it is worth visiting these lands at any time of the year.
Buenos Aires, for example, has many urban attractions that transcend the seasons, however, to enjoy areas in La Patagonia such as the Perito Moreno Glacier in Santa Cruz, Ushuaia or Bariloche the summer months between December and February are the best ones.
The best time to approach the Iguazu Falls in subtropical Misiones province is in the spring or the southern hemisphere winter, when heat and humidity are less oppressive.
During the winter (mid-June to late September) you can go skiing in Bariloche, Mendoza and Ushuaia.
Celebrations and Holidays in Argentina:
Argentina has got just few celebrations and holidays, and mostly those days have their origin in the liturgical calendar of Roman Catholics like Christmas, New Year and Easter. Other important events are the days of All Saints, festival of various provinces, and the commemoration of the 1810 May Revolution (May 25th), Malvinas Day (April 2nd) and Columbus Day (October 12th).
Weather in Argentina:
Argentina’s climate is subtropical in the north, humid and steamy in the center, and cold in the south. In the Andes mountain range´s region the rainfalls are irregular but flash floods occur in summer when the weather is too hot.

The Argentines winters are usually dry and the summer heat can be brutal.
The flat pampas areas are also vulnerable to flooding; Patagonia has got a moderate climate throughout the year in the east and glacial climate in the south.
