Consider winter in Argentina similar to winter in Europe, or at least from Buenos Aires south. As you get further south, so the weather gets colder. BA in the winter is like London, cold and wet, though it never snows. Bariloche in the Andes is ski season. Patagonia is frigid, windy and often snowbound. This being said, north of BA you are getting closer to the tropics and the weather is actually better in the winter than in the summer, less heat and humidity. This is just a general overview. Consult weather.com for averages in most major areas of the country. Enter the name of the city followed by Argentina. EG: Rio Gallegos, Argentina or Iguazu, Argentina.

If you need specifics, let us know.
Cheers
Martin

Thanks for that. So transport wise, buses still run over winter?

I was in Argentina last year for winter (August 2007) and it was fine. A bit cool at times, but not too bad. Definitely still worth visiting!
