At the Ezeiza and Aeroparque airport you´ll find the National Bank for currency exchange (the only place for it). The difference between the illegal and the legal market is very small, and the ATM has a fee about 50 usd or more.
I hope this could help you!
Enjoy your trip!!

Hi, Euro or dollars are good. The blue market has the best rate exchange. ATM will give you the official rate, there is not a huge difference between the blue or black market with the ATM as a few years ago. Your welcome. Chau

The best si to use ATM, specially to make sure bills are fake. But, indeed, there are plenty of currency exchange kiosks downtown

Attention the atm´s fees!
Thank you
Since last year the exchange situation is more stable and it's easy to exchange for a good rate anywhere (the exchange black market it's almost done and it has a similar or worse rate than banks). You won't make a difference by bringing cash, except for the atm's fees.
Rates usually fluctuate between 15.60 and 16 to 1 usd.

American dollars or euros, no charge at banks and exchange houses, ATM's without problem but they charge a fee.

At international ezeiza airport change only at Banco de la Nacion Argentina or
Pick money from ATM

I would just use the Official ATM from a local bank in Argentina (for example Santander). Although they might charge u 3.5 or 5 usd fee depending on your bank, it is more convenient than currency exchange stores. Sometimes those places have hidden fees, usually the exchange rate offered is not the best. In my personal opinion, it is safer that way.
If you want to have an idea of the official exchange rate, just take a look at this website:http://www.bna.com.ar ( "cotizacion de billetes/divisa"...scroll down, it should be somewhere there).
Enjoy Argentina!

Thanks Ezequiel !
Never use ATM's the bank's exchange rate is too low. You better bring USD in cash for small shopping and credit cards if you plan to go out for dinner and whatnot.

Hi, the best currency is us dollars. That's accepted almost everywhere, and very easy to change for argentinian pesos.
