Walk in Florida st and hear people shout โ€œcambio, cambioโ€.. check the blue dollar rate before
Thanks all
airlo worked. I arrived at the airport after setting up the new sim before arriving, was able to call my uber right away using my new virtual sim. Perfect, how it should be done
A great option is villa crespo, is next to Palermo with a similar vibe but a bit more residential
Thank you! Do you have any recs on how to lease other than Airbnb?
Thank you!
Check in mercado libre . com . ar (my previous message was deleted lol) temporary rent = alquiler temporal
Thank you much
Western Union is a great way!
+1 to Area3 - one of the coolest coworking spots I've been to
Hi all - Iโ€™m wondering if anyone else whoโ€™s been to Argentina/Uruguay got as hooked on Yerba Mate as I have?! And wondering how available it is in the rest of the world or if there is a business opportunity here?
I find it so much better than coffee and the whole process of making it + the โ€˜bombillaโ€™ straw etc is super addictive. Iโ€™ve even been using the bombilla for other herbal teas which means avoiding teabags lined with bleach & plastic!
It's readily available in any midsized city in the U.S. The bombilla however is something you might have to order online.
saw it in a specialty store in finland too (argentine kind). probably the only one im the country butโ€ฆ
I've met Polish who drink Mate. Also Siria is a big importer of Yerba Mate. yerbamateargentina (.) org (.) ar
Here in Austria many middle eastern supermarkets have it as well. Normal supermarkets donโ€™t tough.
Not sure, if this is legit anymore but in the past you could order like a whole container from rosamonte ๐Ÿ˜† If you find a market that still has a lack of yerba supply, It might be interesting - or atleast if you can offer lower prices :thinking_face:

But yeh - like the others above said, I didnโ€™t have a problem to buy/find Mate in Spain or Switzerland in the last couple of years.
Trying to send myself cash using WU for the first time. Tried multiple amounts, smaller amounts, multiple cards, always always the same message:
> We're sorry, we couldn't complete your transfer using the payment method provided.
Tried contacting support but may as well have been a robot "Have you tried using another browser and" etc kind of support.
Suspect it's due to it being a new account. Anyone ever go through this before? How to overcome?
Where is your bank/cc/dc? Have you tried using a VPN? (just trying to help)
They are in the US. Will give vpn a try

fywbapqiw did it end up working?
Haven't tried yet...
Just tried on VPN, failed again with same message. I cannot use Western Union
Oh! I canโ€™t this time ๐Ÿ˜ž
Shucks. Let us know if you find a solution, I wouldn't want to take $5k+ or however much in cash for a stay in Argentina.
You can join later? We might move to another bar after lbupgevhuzqzy :)
Related to my above post, seeking any recommendations on a exchange place in Palermo that:
โ€ข Accepts USDC
โ€ข Decent rate
I found one that accepts USDC, the rate is so so, not as good as WU and also has additional fees. Any recommendations?
Yes! I saw it at 9:00 p.m. so maybe I can go there or if you move to another place leave the other one here and Iโ€™ll go..
Same thing happened to me when I first arrived. It took a couple of calls before support was able to help. It was a special team that had to check for fraud, I believe.
I have a friend , rate likely wont best western Union due to fact there is no kyc, but it's close
I don't know what kyc is but anyway, can you put me in touch?
Cool! Yea you can dm me
I've used dolarpalermo (). The rate is usually what you get at WU but they do have extra fees (I don't think it's possible to find without it).
gukeeijqh sent you a dm. He mentioned he can do it without commissions.
If you have Apple Pay I'd try through a debit card on there if calling in doesn't work. Apple Pay seems to have looser fraud prevention detection
Good idea Yihwan, I'm going to look into this
I don't recall seeing Apple Pay option when sending via WU though ๐Ÿค”
Hola! Hope to meet some of you at the meetup tonight! If you can't go anymore, please let me know so I have an accurate headcount. ๐Ÿ˜Š
Hi gjwagfslk are we meeting outside or we have a table?
We have a table on the terrace with heating lamps ๐Ÿ™‚ you can ask for Aldora's table when there.
Hey xalfrtenx I remove my RSVP from the event because I think I will not be there.. hope see you (and the group) next time before you leave ๐Ÿ™‚
ok! dccqejwocnyle Yea hope so as well
๐Ÿ›ฌ vdomdztxg just arrived in ๐Ÿ’ƒ Buenos Aires, #argentina
Once you get to rabia bar go to the terrace and the table is right in front of the stairs
๐Ÿ“ธ Did you take any photos at the Buenos Aires meetup this week? โœ… Upload them here
I was thinking of renting a car for Ushuaia and I was hoping to pay in cash because of the better exchange rate but at least with Avis and the normal booking sites there doesn't seem to be a way to reserve the car without putting in a credit card. Has anyone found a way to reserve a car and pay cash?
๐Ÿ›ฌ wdjcwmjahmj just arrived in ๐Ÿ’ƒ Buenos Aires, #argentina
Hey team! waveskin-tone-3 We are living in Buenos Aires and can't buy anything with a DNI (national identity card). We can't use Mercado Libre but we also canโ€™t even buy cinema tickets.

Has anyone found a way to navigate this?
What do you mean you can't buy cinema tickets?? Do you mean online??
Whenever I'm asked for that like at the grocery store (which is bizarre btw) I've given my passport and even my drivers license and they've accepted both
Muy interesante
Yea you need to ask an argentinian friend, it's pretty annoying! Found that same issue for buying concert tickets zpyvpireaiime
Yes, buying anything online U0367S8RB. And yes, we do this wkasnxoos but itโ€™s super inconvenient. Just thought there might be another way.
Not that I have found smiling_face_with_tear At least it means paying back in cash which is cheaper. ohmczxibgkghu
I have a mercadolibre account, i made up the id number and it worked lol, if anyone needs to buy something dm me i can do the order for you and give you the rapipago code for you to pay
For the events thing unfortunately you either go physically or ask a friend with an argentinian account, very annoying yep
hey all does anyone have the western union promo code to avoid the service fee for the first use?
would love to have this too
Any recommendations for best co working spot in Buenos Aires? Just got here!
La Maquinita Villa Crespo is hands-down the best in the city
The other La Maquinita locations are just okay
WeWork is WeWork
for transfers from the US
How long does it last? Not sure when I will be in ARG pqyuzxjvh
not sure I used it 3 weeks ago so not 100% sure it's still valid
there's a BA digital nomads group on slack with a money exchange channel that's where I found it so if it doesn't work they might be able to help
Area3 in Palermo is great
just used it yesterday and it still worked

Hi guys a few of us plan to get a table at Crobar this friday. There are 10 spots total and it's 8,000 pesos per person (HALF the cost returned in drinks). We will get bottle service all night at the table. If you want to join us let me know via DM! vpartying_face
Area Tres ^ is my favorite
Anyone have a favorite gym in BA? If I could get a sauna that would be amazing ๐Ÿ˜ฌ
Always gym is good, two locations. Not sure about sauna though.
Come bouldering U03JQTUFA7J! :muscle:(@cabarivadavia)
ooooooo where U03BT92H657?? i brought my shoes!
and thanks wnyzudmhd was gonna check them out!
Hey all, I plan to stay five months in BA (arriving in late July). Is it easy to extend the initial 3-month tourist visa? or are there any complications that typically arise? thanks ๐Ÿ™‚
Everyone seems to say itโ€™s easy. You just have to do it within 7 or 10 days of when your visa expires, canโ€™t remember which
Hey vihjysariceapnop I go every week to a boulder in the center of the city (Centro Andino de Buenos Aires - Cede Rivadavia), tell me and we can hang there..
looks awesome U03BT92H657! what days do you usually go? i would go tomorrow
Iโ€™m out of town but Monday 7 30pm Iโ€™ll be there cvsqvvpicopgzkpy
cool i'm down! i'll see you then ddqrxgcqdzfsm
Anyone know a reliable place to reload Movistar phones with cash? Weโ€™ve been to 3 convenience stores and the machines were broken in all 3.
I've tried couple of gyms, AlwaysGym seems to be the nicest in terms of staff, equipment and enough room
I've also made a video about Bariloche if anyone wants to visit! Tho this time will get snowy.. better at the end of year
Has anyone stayed at the Selina from Palermo? I'm going in October and wanted to get some tips and know if the place is good too
Is good. friendly staff, the place is well located.

Palermo is not my favorite neighborhood, too fancy and touristy for me, next time I would stay in Recoleta which is more residential or in San Telmo
๐Ÿ›ฌ jxzmxulmq just arrived in San Carlos de Bariloche, #argentina
I'd say it's good but not great. Also when I stayed there (2019) they didn't have a coworking. They told me they were gonna open one outside the property.
They did. just FYI, the coffee in the cowork sux hard time
I have been staying a few blocks from Selina for a while and I think it's the best part of Palermo (also lived in Palermo Hollywood and Caรฑitas). wouldn't say fancy but hipster, touristy in some parts yeah...but if you like to go out for coffee/breakfast the places you have at walking distance are way better than in Recoleta or Belgrano
Has anyone ever had a laptop or other expensive electronics shipped from outside Argentina? Iโ€™m wondering if anyone has had any issues with an item being caught up in customs or other issues.
depends on the shipping company. I've heard many folks got shipped laptops without issues and I have had smart TVs shipped from the US too (although the price was lower than $600 USD). DHL always works
Not specific to Argentina but DHL would either be wonderful or a total nightmare. ๐Ÿ˜‚
