Weather & Climate

Argentina sees a variety of climate types due to its large size combined with a single sea front coastline. The climate types can be broken up best into North-East, North-West, South-West, South-East and Central South regions.

The North-Eastern regions of Argentina tend to veer towards a sub-tropical weather system and in some areas, temperatures can reach as high as 35 degrees Centigrade (95 Fahrenheit) while other areas can be as cool as 0 degrees Centigrade (32 Fahrenheit). Rainfall can vary over the course of the year but tends to be very high, with the region getting as much as 1800mm of rainfall a year.

The North-West has warm weather as well and may see temperatures rising up to 35 degrees Centigrade (95 Fahrenheit) in the summer (sometimes even topping 45 degrees Centigrade or 113 Fahrenheit) and dropping as low as -8 degrees Centigrade (17.6 Fahrenheit) in the winter. Rainfall is plentiful despite the hot conditions though and up to 1200mm of rain may fall annually.

The South-Western regions have a much more arid climate and may receive less than 200mm of rainfall a year while temperatures may soar up as high as 45 degrees Centigrade (113 Fahrenheit). Conversely, temperatures in some areas (mainly at higher altitudes) may drop as low as -20 degrees Centigrade (-4 Fahrenheit) and may receive in excess of 1000mm of rain annually.

South-Eastern regions have longer summers than the other regions but can also see over 1200mm of rain annually. Temperatures are comparable to European countries, rising up as high as 32 degrees Centigrade (89.6 Fahrenheit) in the summer and dropping as low as -5 degrees Centigrade (23 Fahrenheit) in the winter.

Meanwhile in Central-South regions, temperatures are typically much colder than the rest of Argentina as one would expect, falling down sometimes as low as -35 degrees Centigrade (-31 Fahrenheit) and rarely rising up above 30 degrees Centigrade (86 Fahrenheit) even in the height of summer. Precipitation is additionally high, with up to 4000mm a year, albeit most of this falling as snow in the colder areas of the region.


Holidays

The Lao Lao Resort & Spa is located ideally in Bariloche and features beautiful views of the Andes Mountain Range and lakes Moreno & Nahuel Huapi right from your windowsill. Guests have exclusive access to the marina, fitness centre, swimming pools, an 18-hole golf course, a modern spa and a beach.
Meanwhile in the Peninsula Valdez, the Estancia Rincon Chico has a much more rustic design and offers a clean-cut back-to-nature type experience. Each room features on-suite bathrooms with a tub as well as double or twin beds and guests may experience the nearby marine wildlife centre.

In the Iguazu National Park right in viewing distance from the falls you’ll find the park’s only hotel: the Sheraton Iguazu Resort & Spa. The Resort is set in the middle of the tropical jungle paradise for a true deep-nature experience and visitors have access to the spa, swimming pool, bar, restaurant and the park itself.
Just outside of the park but still inside of Iguazu, the Panoramic Hotel finds itself surrounded by beautiful gardens as well as the local Iguazu River. The hotel is actually situated on a site at the dividing line between Argentina, Paraguay and Brazil and inhabitants have views of the river itself and the falls nearby while they enjoy a cold drink at the bar or a dip in the pool.

The Emperador Hotel is located in Buenos Aires, the capital city of Argentina, and is located in the exquisitely elegant Recoleta district. Guests may experience the hotel’s top-quality spa and heated pools before nipping back to their room to gain access to their own minibar, TV, bathroom and Wi-Fi.
