Changing Money at EZE

The international airport in Buenos Aires, Ministro Pistarini International Airport, uses the airport code EZE. Typically when we arrive in a country, we try to locate an ATM in the airport to get local currency.

Research gave me the information that the ATMs at EZE couldn't be counted on to work properly so I decided to use the exchange booth in the luggage area. The exchange rate wasn't great so I just changed enough to get us into Buenos Aires.

What my research did not tell me was that there was a bank right outside the luggage area. It was a big branch with several windows. So if you arrive at EZE during banking hours, and find the ATMs aren't working, leave the baggage area and do your currency exchange at the bank.
