When to go
Covering a large distance, Argentina can be visited all year round. However, the southern half of the country is best visited between October and April, with the peak months being December to February. Even in these months the weather can be unpredictable. The northwest of the country is best visited between April and December when the weather is characterised by sunny days. The Iguassu Falls are an all year round destination and can become very hot and humid between December and April, but cooler at other times of the year.
The main entry point by air into Argentina is Buenos Aires. British Airways operates a direct service from London Heathrow. Several European and South American airlines, such as TAM Airlines, fly to Buenos Aires via their home hubs.
