Why We Love Them

Besides its many man made wonders and idiosyncrasies Argentina has a wide variety of natural beauty on offer as well.

Their Sustainable Superpower

Argentina is home to some of the most unique and endangered animal species. From the short-tailed chinchilla that is possibly already extinct in the wild, to the Andean cat in the mountainous regions and giant armadillo, these animals need drastic intervention if they are to survive. Thankfully Fundación Vida Silvestre Argentina is working closely with the WWF since the 1980s to protect the wildlife in the country’s marine and forest areas.

Best Time to Visit

The peak tourist season in Argentina is November to February, so if you’re looking for a bustling festival feel with lots of traffic, this might be the best time for you. Alternatively the spring months of October to December and autumn months of April to June are less busy, but the weather is still pleasant. July to August offer crisp weather conditions and a relative quiet in the otherwise busy city of Buenos Aires.
