Best Times to Visit Buenos Aires

The best time to visit Buenos Aires is from April-June (fall) or from September-December (spring). These sweet shoulder seasons usher in mild temperatures, thin crowds, and colorful foliage. Fall and spring also boast reasonable hotel prices. During January and February—Buenos Aires' summertime and peak tourist season—crowds as well as hotel room rates start to swell. While this season remains a popular time to visit, temperatures often rise into the 90s and a muggy heat hangs in the air. The off-season starts in June and ends in August and is usually filled with rainy days, cold winter temps, and few tourists.

April-June

From April through June (Buenos Aires' autumn), colorful fall foliage drapes the city streets and the damp summer humidity is replaced with pleasant daytime temperatures in the 60s and 70s. At night, it's cool enough that all you'll need is a few layers to arm yourself against a chilly evening breeze. Fall also brings below-average room rates as well as a variety of colorful local festivals.

Key Events:

July-August

During July and August (Buenos Aires' winter season), you'll find daytime highs hovering in the 50s and 60s and nighttime temps staying above 45 degrees. Although the weather is coldest during these months, most attractions remain open, making this a sweet (albeit chilly) time to visit. If you plan to visit during this off-season, you won't want to miss the lively Buenos Aires Tango Festival, which begins in August.

Key Events:

September-December

Arrive in October or November (Buenos Aires' spring) and you'll find the city's beautiful violet jacaranda trees bursting into bloom alongside 1,000 different colorful roses at the Rose Garden Walk (Paseo del Rosedal). High temperatures fluctuate between the 60s and 80s during this sweet time of year. Plus, affordable hotel rooms abound since the majority of tourists won't arrive until December.

Key Events:

December-March

The high season welcomes large crowds, and Argentineans tend to flee town for vacations of their own during these months. You'll find a variety of free events, but you'll have to contend with flocks of fellow tourists and high levels of humidity. The weather is comfortable at night, with temps lingering in the 60s, but during the day, it's not unusual for temperatures to spike into the triple digits. You should also expect more expensive hotel rooms, so plan accordingly and book several months in advance to ensure availability.
