Best time to visit Chile & Argentina/Patagonia

Jump to last reply

We are planning a trip to Chile and Argentina either in the October-November time period or perhaps in March-April of 2007. We would like to hear comments about the weather: rain, cold, heat, etc. Would spring or fall (southern hemisphere seasons) be better? We will probably fly in and out of Santiago and want to see the Lake District, Perito Moreno glacier, Chiloe, and perhaps go further south to Ushuaia, etc. If we have time, we are considering the geyser area in northern Chile also. (We spent time in Buenos Aires last year, with side trips to Iguazu Falls, Mendoza, and Salta.) We are flexible, and are thinking of about a three-week vacation. We are in our 60's, and in good health, but will probably not plan on anything more strenuous than some relatively short hikes. We are very much in the early planning stages, and would appreciate any advice. Thanks!
Carol
