When is the best time to visit South America?

The best time to take a cruise holiday to South America depends on the region you want to explore and the specific experiences you’re seeking.

Generally, the Southern Hemisphere’s summer, from December to February, is an excellent time to explore countries like Argentina, Chile, and Uruguay when the weather is warm and conducive to outdoor activities. This is also a great time to visit iconic destinations like Patagonia and the Galapagos Islands.

For those interested in experiencing the Amazon rainforest or the Andes Mountains, the dry season from May to September is preferable, as it offers clearer skies and more comfortable conditions for jungle trekking and high-altitude adventures.

It’s also essential to consider factors like local holidays, festivals and peak tourist seasons. It’s always a good idea to consult with one of our cruise agents who will give you the best advice!
