Buenos Aires

Best time of year to visit Buenos Aires

High season in Buenos Aires runs from December to March. At this time of year prices and temps rise dramatically. One of the brightest celebrations of the season is Gualeguaychú Carnival—an annual event full of samba, Latin American rhythms, battles of drums, and fantastic shows. January and February is an excellent time to see Feria de Mataderos and visit the Atlantic coast beaches. May is the best time to visit Buenos Aires to go surfing, party during Independence Day celebration, and then retreat to Tigre, a resort often called Argentinian Venice. The spring months of October and November are lovely with jacaranda and erythrina in full bloom.
