The best time to visit Buenos Aires

Summers in Buenos Aires can be extremely hot and humid with daytime highs averaging between 35°C (95°F) and 38°C (100°F). While high levels of heat and humidity fill the air, hordes of tourists fill the streets and beaches. If you’re travelling between January through March, book any excursions well in advance and be prepared to pay premium prices. The cooler temperatures between April through June push many beach going crowds away as well as lowers the price of hotels. If you’re searching for cheap flights from Melbourne to Buenos Aires, book travel in the autumn months. Aside from saving money, travel in autumn allows you to experience the colourful foliage draping the city without a throng of crowds to contend with. The winter months between July through August are cold-at least by Argentinian standards. Days average between 10°C (50°F) and 15°C (60°F) but many activities are still open to those who don’t mind the nip in the air. Spring months of October through December are the most colourful times to visit. Flowers are in bloom across the city creating a pleasant aroma nearly everywhere you go. Daily temperatures fluctuate between 15°C (60°F) and 26°C (80°F) allowing you to enjoy many outdoor excursions without getting too hot. Crowds don’t fill the streets until mid-December so if you want big savings on return flights from Melbourne to Buenos Aires, plan to travel between October and November.
