Argentina

What is the weather like in Argentina in October?It is the ideal time to visit the various regions of Argentina, as October sees summer gradually take hold. Temperatures fluctuate at around 20 °C, or perhaps even higher, depending on the region, with the extreme south of the country being cooler.

Things to do in Argentina Buenos Aires is just magical as it navigates constantly between modernity and tradition, boasting neighbourhoods that still resonate with the tango music of Carlos Gardel. Between San Telmo or the Boca district, the birthplace of many a famous footballer, the houses flaunt pretty coloured façades. It is also a cosmopolitan city where Haussmannian architecture echoes Europe, from where the majority of its inhabitants hail. A few kilometres away, in the pampas, land of the gaucho, treat yourself to an asado, a typical Argentine barbecue and a real local institution, accompanied by a drink that is equally so: maté. But you have to go further west to witness the grandiose spectacle of nature offered up by the Andes Cordillera. From roads that criss-cross immense mountains, the feeling of being alone in the world grasps you tightly as you wonder open-mouthed. From trekking on the slopes of Aconcagua to meeting the inhabitants of isolated villages, this escape to a remote land will leave you with memories you will never forget.
