Argentina > Exchange - currency in Argentina
A - F G - M N - S T - Z

The local currency is the Peso ($) The exchange rate fluctuates between $300 to $ 310 per U$S 100 -on March 2003-, due to the current economic situation. If you need to exchange foreign currency go to an authorized exchange agency or a bank. Hotels and stores accept US Dollars, and in general are willing to exchange for Pesos. In several provinces they have Provincial Bonus in circulation (Patacones, Lecop, etc). They are no good for exchanging into foreign currency. Avoid accepting it or having more than U$S 10 in that currency.
