Bills (bank notes) of:
$ 2 (two pesos)
$ 5 (five pesos)
$ 10 (ten pesos)
$ 20 (twenty pesos)
$ 50 (fifty pesos) and $ 100 (one hundred pesos)

Until the month of January of 2002, a peso was equivalent to a American dollar and that value was fixed by the Law of Convertibility. As of that date, this law was countermanded and the peso began to fluctuate in the market, reason why its quotation changes day to day.

This new economic frame, that included a remarkable devaluation of the Argentine currency, makes the country an attractive destiny not only for its natural beauties, but also now, for its truely accessible prices for the foreign tourist.

Means of payment
Doubtlessly the foreign currency easiest to change is the North American dollar (USD), reason why is advisable to bring dollars from your country of origin. The currency change into national currency is made in hotels, banks and houses of authorized change. Being the banks those that offer the more advisable rates of change, nevertheless the proceeding can be longer in these.

Although in many places they accept payment with dollars it is always advisable to carry Argentine pesos, this becomes especially important when travelling in Provinces or far off laces within the country.

Restrictions: The import and export of national or foreign currency are limited. All gold must be declared.

Credit cards
Most of the credit cards are accepted without problems in the Argentine businesses, despite it is possible to undergo some surcharge in the price or not to count on possible a discount that could have obtained if you paid in cash. The most accepted credit cards Visa, American Express, Diners Club and Mastercard.
We recommended to be careful at the time of paying to with a card, and not let it out of your sight for long.
