What is the Weather in Argentina?
The weather in Argentina varies greatly depending on where you go in the country. The area around Buenos Aires can be fairly cold in the winter but hot and humid in the summer. However, the area around Cuyo, which is mostly desert, is very hot and dry with temperatures that can reach above 122 degrees Fahrenheit (50 degrees Celsius). Around the Andes, it is very cold in the winter and cool in the summer depending on the altitude. Due to the mountainous region, temperatures can change radically in a single day. Because Argentina is in the Southern Hemisphere, summer is from December to February.
How do I get Around Argentina?
The most common way to travel in Argentina is by bus and many are large, comfortable buses used for long trips. There may even be snacks or hot meals served if the trip is very long. There are also shorter, less luxurious options for local travel. If you need to travel a long distance quickly, there are air options as well. If you plan to visit some of the isolated areas in Argentina, you may want to rent a car. Keep in mind that some of the roads are unfinished and potentially dangerous. Unfinished roads may be very muddy, especially after heavy rains and some may be impassable unless you have 4WD. In Argentina, if a driver flashes their lights at you, it is a warning not to do something unlike in other countries where it signals that you have the right-of-way.
