  • From Patagonia to the Yunga Jungle, Argentina a year-round destination

    2009-12-23

    When traveling internationally, it is not uncommon to come across advice on the best season to visit a country. Yet when planning an excursion to the South American nation of Argentina, the question is less of a when and more of a where.

    Thanks in large part to its expansive length (roughly 2,400 miles) and considerable elevation above sea level, temperatures remain pleasant throughout different portions of the country depending on the season. This can prove confusing for travelers coming from the U.S. as seasons south of the equator are reversed, so travelers are advised to research their exact destination prior to booking a flight.

    During the warmer summer months, Southern Argentina's Patagonia provides scenic vistas of stoic mountains and enormous glaciers that provide a unique luminescent sheen under the South American sun.

    As temperatures fall in the winter, Northern Argentina opens its arms to international tourists eager to explore the subtropical Yunga Jungle and traditional colonial villages like San Miguel de Tucuman.

    Adventurers are advised that travel in July can be quite expensive, as school winter vacations drive venders and merchant’s prices significantly higher than other times of the year.
