Best time to visit Iguazu Falls in Argentina
Given its location close to the equator, there is never really a bad time to visit the Iguazu Falls when it comes to the weather. While the temperature does fluctuate throughout the year, it rarely drops below around 10 degrees Celsius. What really determines the best time to visit the falls depends on what you want to get out of your experience. Argentineans are on holiday from January to February, making this one of the busiest times to visit the falls along with Easter. If you want to skip the crowds then you should avoid travelling during this time.
The rainy season, from December to March, sees higher temperatures, a lot of humidity and high water levels, making the falls seem all the more powerful. On the downside, high water levels might make San Martin Island inaccessible and sometimes the heat can be a bit overbearing. From April through to October, blue skies prevail, making for the best photo opportunities, and the weather is much milder. However, during this time the low water levels might detract from the magnificence of the falls. Visiting the Argentinean side of the falls is all about getting up close and personal with the cascades so visiting when they are in full flow is a great way to experience them. Generally, people agree that the shoulder months of March, April and September are the best times to go as the water levels are still reasonably high and it isn’t too hot.
