Buenos Aires, Argentina
Average July temperature:
Tango? Hot. You? Not so much.
Buenos Aires began July with low temperatures in the upper 30s but still warms to tourists in its cold winter months. Those looking to trace the footsteps of Eva Peron, Jorge Luis Borges or even the thousands of tango dancers who came before can do so at a discount as the temperatures drop.
"Long-haul flights are still going to be a little more pricey than they would be domestically, but it's the offseason there, so you might get some deals," Banas says. "In many cases, it's much less expensive than going to Europe."
It's every bit as interesting, though, and visitors will need extra memory cards when shooting the pastel-painted buildings along the Caminito, the museums and gardens along Avenida del Libertador and the cafes and street performers in San Telmo. Come hungry, however, as all that cold weather makes the hot
barbecue and bottles of malbec nice options for keeping warm.
