Cash/Credit cards in Argentina and Chile

Jump to last reply

I'll be travelling in early January (Santiago, Atacama, Torres del Paine, El Calafate and BA), very excited about my first trip. But I heard that especially in BA, it is difficult to use credit cards. I'd like to know what others have experienced and whether I should bring lots of USdollars or rely on ATMs and/or credit cards. Thanks !
