Wifi hotspot is one option, yes, but you will get better connectivity in USB tether mode. You'll need to download a USB driver for your PC from the website of your phone's manufacturer, but you just plug your phone into a USB port on your computer like you were charging it, and then activate USB Tether Mode under Sharing and Connectivity, the same location as the Hotspot feature.

This is what I use all the time.

It is far from being a cheap solution, but with Claro you can buy a 40 gig data package for 3000 pesos.

This sounds like a good solution. How are your speeds in comparison with using cable/ADSL? Does Claro have good coverage throughout the city? I've used Claro and liked it, however, I've had numerous occasions where I would be in deadzones where there was no service.

Claro are offering very big data packages, but their speeds tend to be lower than the main competition, Telecom Personal:

Test Date: 11 Oct 2021 13:19
Download: 123 Mbps
Upload: 8.66 Mbps
Ping: 16 ms
Connection Type: Cellular
Server: Vicente Lopez

Admittedly from Palermo, but only 3 bars of 4G signal.
