Its weighted average annual temperature throughout the 20th century was 18 ° C. In January, the warmest month of the austral summer, the maximum average is 31 ° C and the minimum of 17 ° C. In July, the coldest month, average temperatures are 19 ° C maximum and 4 ° C minimum. Even in winter, some rather warm days are frequent due to the influence of the Zonda wind.
ADVISES TO COMING TO ARGENTINA
- Exercise normal safety precautions in Argentina. Use common sense and look out for suspicious behaviour, as you would in your country.
- Avoid protests and demonstrations as they may become violent. If you’re in an area affected by unrest, follow the advice of local authorities.
- There is widespread transmission of Zika virus in the northern areas of Argentina. Pregnant women should discuss any travel plans with their doctor and defer non-essential travel to affected areas.
- While most major hotels in different cities exchange US currency, travelers cheques may not be accepted. Photo identification may be required when using a credit card. Keep a photocopy of the identity page of your passport with you if you intend to use a credit card in Argentina.
- Only use taxis that are clearly marked as ‘radio taxi’ with the taxi’s company name and telephone number visible. Radio taxis and ‘remises’ (chauffeured cars) can be booked by telephone or at the airport arrivals hall. Try to book taxis in advance rather than hailing from the street, and avoid sharing with strangers.
- Take out comprehensive travel insurance before you depart to cover overseas medical costs, including medical evacuation.
