When / where should I exchange my currency for Argentine pesos?
We DO NOT recommend changing for Argentine pesos before your trip since you will get an unfavorable rate in your home country. You can change enough currency to get you to the city center at the airport (if this is even necessary). For the best rate at the airport, DO NOT exchange currency at the Global Exchange desk. Their rates are terrible. If you need to change at the airport, change at Banco Nación as you exit customs.
At Poetry, we can exchange USD into local Argentine pesos at the current exchange rate. There are also ATM machines within 2 blocks of the building where you can withdraw local currency. If you choose this option, you should alert your banking institution prior to traveling that you will be in Argentina and will be accessing your cards. There will be a banking fee and currency spread paid in this transaction.
