During the local spring-summer season, the provinces of Salta and Jujuy are blessed with the perfect temperatures to go out and enjoy the many attractions on offer. Here are some tips for packing your suitcase and getting the most out of your stay
The North in Argentina continues to be one of the most popular tourist destinations chosen by travelers from all over the world. And there’s no shortage of reasons why. As well as its captivating scenery and a vibrant indigenous culture that can be felt all around, this part of the country boasts a mild climate that’s perfect to visit in any season.
For anyone planning a journey during Argentinian spring-summer, we’ll recap below how the weather changes and top tips for the best clothing to take.
The Temperature in Salta and Jujuy
From November to March, the average temperature in Salta and Jujuy is around 20 degrees Celsius/68 degrees Fahrenheit, with the maximum temperature being close to 32 degrees Celsius/90 degrees Fahrenheit. This shows that, even during the hottest months, the North has an especially attractive climate to enjoy its impressive natural scenery.
The rainy season also takes place in summer, between December and February to be precise. However, the rains won’t scupper visitor’s plans.
On the other hand, it’s important to take into account that the region’s temperature range – principally in the area of Los Valles and Puna – can be significant and, therefore, during the night, it’s best to be prepared for much lower temperatures.
Tips for Packing Your Suitcase
When visiting the North, it’s crucial to have the right clothes with you. During the day, you can’t do without light clothes (shorts, light pants, short-sleeved t-shirts, etc.), some kind of waterproof in case it rains, and comfy shoes which can be used for hiking and longer treks. With regard to coats and taking into account that it can be cold at night, we recommend that you take a jacket and scarf. Lastly, given the altitude of the area, it’s necessary to properly protect yourself from the UV rays. As well as always having sun block to hand, we advise using a hat and sunglasses.
