Escape from the cold: discover Argentina
by Patricia Mendez on Thursday, January 31, 2019
Thinking about these months, what first comes to mind for many of us are sweaters, snowmen, and quiet talks near the fireplace. In previous posts, we have talked about holiday traditions that celebrate Christmas and top ski resorts in Spain. However, there is one place that can add a twist to the conversation: Argentina.
If you live in North America, Europe, or Asia, this time of the year you are probably already tired of feeling cold. Would you like to escape from low temperatures? In order to enjoy a summer climate where you can also learn Spanish, Argentina is your best choice.
In the next lines, we are going to travel to Argentina and leave winter behind. Let us show you where to go to make the most of the Sun of May. Click here if you want to read this post in Spanish and discover what the land of asados and tango has to offer you in the summertime.
January at the beach
Yes, it might sound weird. But January is the peak of the summer season at Argentinian beaches. With a coastline more than 3,000 miles long, this country offers a variety of beaches from north to south on the Atlantic Ocean.
The shore has locations to suit every taste. Mar del Plata is one of the liveliest spots, with an almost infinite variety of food and festivities. If you prefer bigger waves, Miramar is a preferred surfing destination. To disconnect from urban stress and enjoy quiet green landscapes, we recommend you visit Cariló beaches.
For mountain lovers
When we talk about going on vacation, there are always people who confess they prefer the mountains to the beach. Summer is the best time of the year to enjoy camping in the forest, riding river rapids, or going climbing. In Argentina you can do all this in January!
Cordoba is one of the best provinces to experience these kinds of adventures. Some cities, like Villa Carlos Paz, double their population during the summertime. Rafting, trekking, and hiking are great options in this amazing destination for adventure tourism.
Strangely enough, the warm months are a very good time to do intensive tourism in the capital. We won’t deny that Buenos Aires has pretty high temperatures from December to March. However, this inconvenience has a big plus: its streets are significantly emptier because many inhabitants leave town in search of cooler areas.
This will allow you to visit the city’s monuments and take part in its festivals in a more relaxed way. Outdoor movies, Buenos Aires Playa, and the ecological reserve are just some of the best ways to enjoy being outside. You can also take advantage and visit the most popular museums of the capital without standing in line!
