OUR GUIDE TO the weather in the The Pampas
Stretching south and west from Buenos Aires are the yawning plains and fertile soils of the pampas. The climate here varies by season: the summer (December - February) is hot, humid and prone to tropical showers, while the winter months (June - August) are cool, dry and often cloudy. Spring and autumn are ideal times to visit, with sunny, warm days and colourful foliage. The annual Dia de la Tradición in San Antonio de Areco offers a full week of gaucho-related activities, including exhibitions of cowboy skills, dancing and succulent barbecues.
