When to Go

High Season (Dec–Mar)

It's high season in Brazil and the Atlantic coast; beaches and festivals (such as Carnaval) are big draws.  The best time to visit Patagonia, though expect higher prices.

Shoulder (Oct–Nov)

It's dry season in the Amazon, making for fine wildlife-watching.
Fewer crowds and lower prices make this a good time to visit Buenos Aires, Rio and other coastal destinations.

Low Season (Jul–Aug)

In Chile and Argentina, many services close at beach resorts, and mountain passes can be blocked by snow.
