Can anyone recommend a good place to change dollars for pesos is small amounts ($500 or less at a time)? I don't have any local bank accounts and want to be able to change a few hundred dollars once a week or so at a good rate.
I am curious as to why any cambio would offer lower rates than the posted daily exchange rate?
That is, what could possibly be in it for a bank, or a private money changer, to offer "good rates" that were any different from what everybody else is offering?
Do they lose money on every transaction, but make it up in volume?
I would recommend either the Banco de Nacion or Banco Cuidad de Buenos Aires as the best banks to get a good rate of exchange, certainly with regard to Euro's, and I know that dollars are well received too...
