We will be in Argentina for 3 weeks. We are planning to bring USD with us since it seems that we can get a better exchange rates inside the country (we are Canadians so cannot use xoom.com). We rented an apartment in Palermo and our landlord suggested we exchange with the people crying "cambio cambio" on Calle Florida.
After looking into this online, my travel companions are not comfortable with it, especially since we would like to exchange a fairly large sum (2000 USD). Are there safer exchange houses on Florida (or elsewhere) that offer decent exchange rates? We are not aiming for the current blue market rate of 7.5 ARS to USD. Somewhere around 6 would be great.
