The country is long enough that certain cities and region experience slightly different weather patterns than in different areas, but on the whole, you will find that there is really no bad time to embark on Buenos Aires travel. In determining the best time to go to Buenos Aires for you, you should probably first do some investigating into what activities and attractions are going on that you are most interested in experiencing. This may help to inform just exactly what part of the year to go.
