oh, ok well that makes me feel a lot better. I was thinking they forgot. Thank you for helping! ๐Ÿ˜
Is anyone tracking it though? I am thinking about staying longer than 90 days but want to go to Chile/Brazil etc...
Does the 90 days reset everytime you leave? Say for a 5-7 day trip to a neighbouring country?
i also didn't get a stamp on both occassions I have entered in the last month
They introduced an electronic system last summer I believe. No more stamps.
Does anyone have a favorite cowork in Recoleta or Palermo? I'd prefer someplace with lots of other nomads to somewhere empty and quiet.
I'm being told by expat friends here you can just go somewhere else and come back to get a fresh 90 days. If in BA take a ferry to Uruguay and back for example is the easiest way.
Heads up that Visa has stopped offering the better exchange rate, at least for some transactions. I just received 185 peso/USD from Chase
oxyc 7d
for me it took 5 days to get the reimbursement (weekend)
Oh interesting. It worked for me as part of the initial charge, at the ~330 rate. Maybe it switched to a reimbursement
oxyc 7d
maybe because itโ€™s weekend? ๐Ÿคž

That's not true, I went to Chile from Argentina for one day and they wrote the number of allowed days under the new entry stamp (90 days minus the number of days I had already spent in Argentina).
They also stamped my passport every time I crossed the border (although I never crossed the border at Buenos Aires airport).

I wonder if that depends on the nationality ๐Ÿค” , However, Argentina is also 90 days visa-free for my nationality.
Ok, itโ€™s weirder Schwab is at the 330 rate ๐Ÿคท
Hi everyone. Where are you all staying in the Buenos Aires region? Our plans changed with the status of Peru.

Most of the places we are finding are $60-75 USD a night, which seems expensive to me.
oxyc 7d
i would love to know how this rate implementation works under the hood :D
boris_k 7d
If you're looking for hotel options, choose the one where you pay at check-in. You're likely to pay about two times less if they bill you in pesos (but better check that with the hotel, what they would charge you).
I used to go to La Maquinita but couldn't find many nomads. I heard the La Usina Cowork is filled with us

Recommending something bordering Palermo, i.e., Villa Crespo, Belgrano, and so forth. Much cheaper, yet still close enough to get everywhere quick.

Hey, anyone know good places to exchange USD and GBP? palermo area. Blue rate of course
Hmm yeah it might depend on the nationality +/- perhaps who you get in customs?!
A ferry to Uraguay sounds cool! I will give that a try and see what happens. Do you know how we can check up on the number of days we have been in/are allowed digitally? There is definitely nothing on my passport and the website that the UK gov takes me to www.migraciones.gov.ar/transitos/ does not have the UK/GB as countries in the drop down!
Thanks! I'll check it out. It's a bit of a distance from where I'm staying in Recoleta, but might be worth it. First, I'm going to check out the closest place (Ronda Coworking in Recoleta) to see if there's anyone there.
I arrived Friday night. Saturday morning I exchanged money at this place, which was the closest currency exchange to where I'm staying and it was smooth and easy. The rate seemed a tiny bit lower than the blue dollar rate, but slightly better than Western Union's rate. I want to say they were selling pesos at 368 to the dollar.

I also discovered that if you search for "cambio" on Google Maps you get mostly oil change places, but if you search for "currency exchange" or "money exchange" you'll find places nearby.

Hello, do you enjoy going to coffeshops to work?, I mean those places that can replace going to a coworking space. What is your top 5, why?
When I find a good place I just go there until I hate it ๐Ÿ˜„ , however Im looking for alternatives:
1- Von Berry (Palermo) inside feels like perfect ambience, most people working, I get productive really fast.
2- Santo (Palermo) actually is a restaurant, going there sometimes for the BBB day menu (Bueno Bonito Barato) and the place is quite and relaxing after launch.
3- Jakarta (Palermo) Tried a couple of times, to work outside, it has a nice shade, and the best variety of coffee so far. After drinking a V60 you just don't blink anymore, is like 5 red bulls.
Von berry is great. I like Al Diablo and Hacienda Coffee CO by plaza armenia. Both are chill and have good wifi
I just made a transaction on a Visa card. The merchant's mercdadopago POS device said it didn't go through, but my bank is showing it as processing at the official rate. Hopefully this gets straightened out because it is double-sucky.
I know over a dozen people who did the ferry ride to Uruguay - none of them had any issues getting the 90 days.

I crossed the border in Patagonia (to visit Torres del Paine park in Chile) and returned on the same day. Maybe it does make a difference. But they gave me 55 days on re-entry there.
I exchanged more $$ there today and got 375 to the dollar.
Im going to try them, thanks!
harry1 6d
thank you
harry1 6d
I appreciate it
Same. Had this happen on my chase sapphire card. Other chase freedom works normally though.
Any foodies here? I have a reservation for up to 4 at 22:30 on Feb 1 if anyone interested? Let me know!!
I've been using wework. Linea D from Recoleta gets close to their location at Corrientes 800. Diagonal Norte station. Not a ton of nomads but lots of IT workers and English speakers
Try using Athena crypto OTC. Blue rate.

Athena Bitcoin ATM

I use USDC on Solana. Phantom wallet on my iPhone for when I go i there. He takes ETH stuff also or BTC. He's flexible.
I like paying cash for everything
he can give USD in cash also which is nice
Athena Bitcoin ATM

I've been using this crypto OTC guy. He can do crypto for pesos or USD. Maybe GBP also but I never asked.
La bistecca



I just wanted to recommend this place. Amazing food. I'm not a foodie but I was really impressed with it and the price was cheap imo. It's a buffet place. Nice atmosphere.

Check out for Villa Urquiza aswell.
Confirmation is confirmed actually and I can add up to 3 more people!
Awesome. Thank you everyone!
I'm trying to go to a tango show Thur! 9000 pesos w/o dinner at 9:30.

Hey iqrowigwfgxny โœŒ๏ธ Could you give an update on the hunt for nomad-friendly coworking?
last time before I left BS AS I saw this 1๏ธโƒฃ Estudiote Cafe. go and check it out, it looks stunning for working from there
Selina cowork perhaps, I will go there, as you can pay for the day without reservation. is about 1800 pesos (usd4,75)
Oh where?

Anybody going?
Hey All! Are there places that exchange smaller notes for larger ones? I made the mistake of withdrawing cash at a Western Union that only had $100 notes, so I'm stuck with a brick of cash. It's not really practical to walk around with cash of such small denominations.
I just landed in BA yesterday. What's a Chino?
oh welcome, Chino or Super Chino is the colloquial name for the small supermarkets where the cashier/employees are often Asian.
Dont go with all your box of notes, however smaller amount, they might be able to swap. 20/50K they might do. They need the change.
Actualyl 100 bills have higher value
than smaller denomations
So you really want to keep your $100 bills and exchange them for blue dollar rate pesos
I understood he has lots of 100 bill pesos
Yeah, I have 100 bill pesos I need to exchange for 1000 bill pesos so I can actually carry around a usable amount of cash.
hebuozshon Will banks swap smaller bills for larger ones?
Perhaps, although they are the one who have me 100s for a mornin withdrawal ๐Ÿ˜‚ . Banks open 10 to 15.
eztrpemrss I am similar haha. but my friend who's from Argentina said not to bring laptop into coffee shops bc people might steal it. have you had this issue? or felt unsafe at all in BA?
hey everyone! so I am coming to BA in March and am super excited. will probably stay a few months as I am a digital nomad haha. My friend is from argentina and has said that I need to be careful in the city as a woman traveling.

Any do/don't from you guys who have been there for a bit?

I speak Spanish (but am also moving here for a bit to become fluent as my goal!)

I love working in coffee shops but also want everyone's POV on how they feel working in public spaces??
Hi bydnbcwbnlfx ๐Ÿ™‚ There is always the risk, but it is not that certain. You just got to be aware of the surroundings and be careful not to leave it unattended. So I heard of people getting their phone or laptop stolen, it is usually related to neglecting personal belongings.
1) you are outside/inside and have your phone/wallet over the table. Somebody gets by to ask for coin or selling something and goes away. Then you cannot find your stuff.
2) you are inside and have your bag/backpack hanged on the back of the chair or somewhere not visible. You assume because there is people seated around seemingly regular customers, your prejudice tells there is no risk. However often pick pocketers look like regular people.

I go to coffeeshop/bars/restaurants with my stuff and never been stolen anything. Although I usually prefer the inside part, or internal garden. Working on the sidewalk area depends whether you are exposed or inside a "fence". Anyway just be aware.
ahh got it thank you!
so you bring your laptop into coffee shops and work??
Yes I do
and feel ok? as long as you are watching it
also, I am most likely headed to Palermo and Recoletta!
where are you?
kavmtscpbgoe Did your Argentinian friend got stolen laptop at a cafe? I am also Argentinian ๐Ÿ˜ , just saying.
hahah mucho gusto ๐Ÿ˜‰
and awesome! I am so excited to come !!
Anyone in Mendoza interested in joining for some hiking?
phn 2d
Depends a bit which areas youโ€™re staying/working but wouldnโ€™t say I felt unsafe in BA
Working from cafes is totally fine. Just donโ€™t do it on tables that are on the street. Iโ€™ve seen people doing it but personally Iโ€™m too paranoid to feel comfortable doing it and I could never focus on work in those conditions. And never leave your stuff unattended, specially if youโ€™re sitting by the door.
ok thank you! this is helpful
I will be in Palermo/Recoletta
I will be staying in recoletta/palermo
any recommendations ?
Those are very safe areas ๐Ÿ‘Œ
great!
any coffee shops.cafes u reccomend?
im a woman traveling solo in BA and feel pretty safe during the day (staying in palermo hollywood) but have been taking ubers everywhere at night. and i dont ever have my phone out on crowded streets and turn towards a building or something if i have to pull it out. already know 2 people in this area who have had their phones stolen
so if you have an older one bring that vs a new one and i bought a cross body purse so i can always have the strap around me for security
Can anyone suggest a private Spanish tutor? I'm currently in Palermo. Apparently my high school/ college Spanish isn't as good as I thought. I think I'd prefer something in person.

I didnt get a stamp either when entering via plane and a second time via ferry from Uruguay.

The lady today at migration at Ezeiza was surprised and asked me if I didnโ€™t get any stamp in my passport and after I said โ€œnoโ€, everything was ok ๐Ÿ˜…
