Money in Argentina

The currency of Argentina is the peso and there are 100 centavos to each peso. Clearly exchange rates are variable but at the time of writing 1 US$ = 3.85 ARG$. There are banks with ATMs in towns and cities throughout Argentina and it's very easy to withdraw money with debit/credit cards (instructions are in English and Spanish usually). Many tourist-oriented services also accept payment in US$ so it's worth bringing some reserve currency. Visa and MasterCard are accepted in many shops and restaurants, particularly in cities. Try to avoid changing money upon arrival at the airport as the rates can be extremely unfavourable.
