Argentinian currency

Jump to last reply

We've gotten some Argentinian currency from our local bank in preparation for our upcoming trip to Buenos Aires, hoping to have money available for taxi tips, etc. and able to enjoy our first afternoon without immediately running to a bank. However, our bank could get only 100 pesos bills. Would appreciate info as to whether we can use US $$ for tips and smaller restaurants, and whether a larger restaurant or store might be a place to pay with a 100 peso and get "change"? Or is there a location in the airport for obtaining smaller denominations? Any suggestions regarding money issues would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks to forum members who've provided us other useful info for our trip.
