Currency Exchange at EZE

EZE is the airport code for Ministro Pistarini International Airport, the international airport for Buenos Aires. Our pattern, upon arriving in a new country, is to find an ATM at the airport and obtain some local currency.

After some research on line, the feedback I had was that the ATMs at EZE aren't very dependable. So instead, I used the currency exchange booth that is located right in the luggage carousel area. I wasn't happy with the exchange rate but I thought, in the airport, I had no other good option.

WRONG! Immediately after leaving the baggage area, there is a bank branch on the right. A BIG branch with a whole bunch of windows. Boy, was I annoyed. So if you arrive in Buenos Aires, at EZE, during business hours, exit the luggage area and exchange your money at the bank.
