Spend the Holiday Season in Argentina!

Christmas in Argentina is one magical, memorable experience. On our Christmas Tour of Argentina, Buenos Aires, Patagonia, and Iguazu Falls, you will undergo Christmas and the South American holiday season the way it is meant to be experienced. For years, travelers from North America, Europe, and Asia have made the journey to South America for some winter relief during the holiday season. Find out why Christmas in Argentina will be the best holiday decision you’ve made in years!

Why is Christmas in Argentina so great?

Christmas in Argentina is excellent because of the warm weather, passionate and interesting culture, and the many destinations you can add on to your trip.

Weather in Argentina During Christmas

The absolute best part of spending Christmas in Argentina is the sunny, warm weather! What a fantastic weather change from the cold, wintery months surrounding Christmas in North America. The weather as you walk Puerto Madero in December, explore Palermo, or tour La Boca will be perfect short sleeve shirt and shorts weather. How perfect is that?!

Argentina Culture & Holiday Traditions

Another reason to visit Argentina at Christmas time is the incredible amount of culture. This culture can be felt all throughout Buenos Aires and the many other beautiful towns in Argentina. Buenos Aires is often called the Paris and Cultural Capital of South America and it very easy to see why. On a Buenos Aires tour, enjoy the glorious museums, people dancing the Tango on the streets, and fine food and Argentine dining. You can’t go wrong spending your holiday season in Argentina.

 Argentina Christmas Food

As popular as Argentine food is in South America, it’s no wonder that a vital part of celebrating is spent cooking and eating. Argentina Christmas food varies from household to household, but meat-based dishes are often on the menu. From roasted turkey and pork to gourmet tuna sandwiches. However, the most traditional and beloved Argentina Christmas food is “Vitel Thoné.” Originating from Italy, Vitel Thoné is comprised of slices of veal and topped with a creamy anchovy and tuna sauce. This dish is mostly only popular around Christmas time, and while not to everyone’s liking, it is indeed a tradition worth sampling.

Add-on to Your Christmas in Argentina Trip

A visit to Buenos Aires is absolutely fantastic at Christmas. This is because Buenos Aires is an incredible jump-off point for not just the rest of Argentina, but for the entire continent of South America as a whole. Visit nearby Brazil and Rio de Janeiro, Chile, Peru and Machu Picchu, Colombia, Ecuador, and more!

Or, take a trip to Patagonia for a trek or tour of El Calafate or El Chalten. Mountains, not your thing? Maybe a luxury wine tasting an Argentina Wine Lodge is more your thing. The possibilities are endless when you spend Christmas in Argentina.
