The official Argentinean peso rate of exchange is currently 9.5 pesos to the US dollar.

I’m writing post to assist people in getting a higher rate of exchange. Most hustling visitors to Buenos Aires understand that they can carry US dollars around to get a higher exchange rate from those who require the dollars.

To avoid this, you can use the same strategy that I use, which involves having an America bank account. If you have an American account you will be able to use a service, quiet similar to Western Union, although this service is known as Xoom. With Xoom you will be able to transfer directly from your US account and pick it up at over sixty different locations around Argentina.

Checkout their site for more information. I for them as I’ve used them many times.

Xoom’s exchange rate is US to AR pesos is 15 pesos, which is much better than the official rate and more like to “Blue rate” (street rate).
