Leftover pesos

Jump to last reply

Our government has intentionally complicated anything related to the purchase of foreign currencies with pesos.

Tourists should find it relatively easy to sell their countries' currencies when they arrive here, but they should be forewarned that they may be unable to buy them back when they leave, with any leftover pesos they may have, UNLESS they have the invoice showing they exchanged their currency for pesos when they landed here.

There is a thread on TA about this: http://tinyurl.com/bucelwo

So, I suggest you keep the invoice showing you SOLD your currency when you came into the country or spend all your pesos before leaving. The tax-free shop would probably be your last chance to do this. They sell some cheap items, such as our wonderful "dulce de leche" or our great "alfajores".

Have a great time in our country.
