Directly from the horse's mouth:
Today I had an appointment in the Banco Santander Rio and they told that I could open an account in USD, and transfer directly funds fron the USA to my account here.
The cost is 2.5% of the total amount, with a minimun of 200 USD being sent.

Why does this matter? You deposit USD in the US and here you get USD again. Or am I missing something?
Correct. The issue would be, however, what happens when you get to the bank and say, "I want my money from my USD account." Will they pay out in Pesos (at the official rate) or will they literally pay out in USD. The answer, at least for now and at least for one bank with which I am familiar, is the payout can be in USD. I believe it has not always been so and this would be something to discuss when setting up the USD account.

I know of one person who rents a safety deposit box for the transferred USD against the possibility that one day there will be a forced account payout in Pesos.
