Argentina - Money- Exchange - Blue Dollar

My fellow travelers, I realized that my Argentina vacation is not as cheap as I thought, and the only way to contain the cost is to pay hotels and services in cash. That means I need to exchange us $ on the Florida street . ( Thank you all who posted the advise on this forum). The question is how do I do that? Should I go there couple of times $400$ each trip? Or should I do this as one transaction? Please give me your thoughts.

The official rate according to NYT is 7 pesos but on the Blue market -12. This is almost 2 as much. This would help a lot.

Try Xoom.com. You can pop US$ in an account with them, and then pull it out in pesos when you need it at a local bank. You pay a fee for each "conversion", but their exchange rate is close to the street value.

Thank you. I will research that option. I am somewhat scared to trade the money on the street.
