Argentina and Bolivia in August-September?

Hi, My husband and I had planned to spend 8-10 weeks in Bolivia and Argentina in August-September. Now I am concerned that the weather around Uyuni,Lake Titicaca, and La Paz will be a detriment. I read on the forum that parts of Argentina will be uncomfortably hot. I welcome opinions and personal experiences. Thanks.

I don't think weather will be uncomfortably hot - you're going around their winter, after all.

The main thing with some of the places you'll be visiting in Bolivia is they're all at considerable altitude, so again shouldn't get too hot. If anything, it'll get cold every single night.

Where in Argentina do you plan to go? It's a big country so a place like Buenos Aires will be quite different from an area like Patagonia or Mendoza inland at higher altitude.

We were in Buenos Aires in mid-September 2016. In most photos I’m wearing short sleeves, but long sleeves in another. My wife had half-sleeves and even had a sweater on in a couple photos.

Hi Nancy,

I visited Argentina in October last year on a 6 week trip with my family.Now, for Argentina it is very tricky as it totally depends where you plan to visit.I personally think for a 8-10 week Argentina & Bolivia trip you surely require a great amount of planning.So, I had actually been referred by someone on the forum about Voyagers Travel Company. I think their website is: "" The best part is they accommodated our budget pretty well and there was no hassle of planning everything from the scratch.This is run by a guy named Andre and the best thing is they make trips specifically for South America.Initially I was a bit hesitant but once I spoke to him he turned out to be a gem.We had also told him about our veg. food preferences which was also accommodated well. All in all it turned out to be a great trip.As everything was very well planned and organised.

I'm planning on doing a quite a bit of exploring in Bolivia and Paraguay next summer (winter in the Southern Hemisphere) and would love to know what some of your plans are and also hear back from you once you've returned.
