What is the best time of the year to travel to Argentina? Additionally, what is the general cost for a flight from the US (specifically, leaving from Chicago is possible). I looked them up recently and noticed they we approx $1800 and I wasn't sure if that was the norm or not.
First answer: The best time... From january to march there are "nobody" in the cities (like Cordoba, Rosario, Mendoza). But in the tourist cities there are everybody. This is high season. January and febrary is hot. In this times there are many festivals and you can enjoy the river, lakes, and waterfalls.
Other high season is in july.
If you decide to came here (Argentina) on low season, keep in mind that not all the hostels are open, not all the restaurant, and not all the tourist atractions.
Anyway, the best time to travel depends on where do you like to go in Argentina and what do you like it about travelling. (do you like to travel alone? do you like nightlife? do you like crowded cities? do you like snow, beach or mountains and rivers?
Second Answer: You can check the website of www.kayak.com. All air companies have specials promotion if you buy the ticket months before you want to travel.
