I will be in BsAs for 2~ months from May-July. I'm a young (19) solo traveler and I'll be staying in hostels. I'm American and am budgeting about $4k for my time there. The hostel has lockers in the rooms and I have a strong padlock, but I'm nervous about having $4k USD in cash even if it is locked up.
With Xoom, I could make transfers as needed and avoid carrying a bunch of cash at one time. But, I don't know how the rates tend to compare to the blue dollar rate. Can someone help me make a decision as to how I should exchange my money while I'm in Argentina?
