Hello, im a new member to the site and i just arrived in Buenos Aires. I was wondering if someone could tell me where a good place to exchange US currency into pesos? Can i just go to any major bank with my passport and ask for the exchange?
If you head down to the financial district there are tons of banks within a three block walk that advertises their rates. You need a passport to exchange your money which is a little silly, but whatever.
Go towards the corner of Reconquista and Sarmiento. All the banks are on Sarmiento to the West. (look over towards Corrientes and N. Alem if you have trouble finding Reconquista and Sarmiento).
