As Moderator of this forum, I have removed the comments about the Argentine accent because: 1) bickering about an accent isn't assisting with Chilledout's original requests, 2) this thread is not the correct venue for such banter and 3) to bring this thread back to topic before the digression continued. Please respond with information that will help Chilledout with the questions he has posted above. Thank you.

Isa now returns this thread to it's originally scheduled topics.

Fair enough, Is.

Right. So bringing 700 in American cash is fine. Make sure your bank card works on the Cirrus and Plus systems and you are good to go. I would suggest ( I know this from bitter BITTER experience) that you tell your bank that you are going to be using your card in South America. That way they won't put a hold on it at just the wrong time. Same with a credit card if you are going to be using that.

Try to take out the maximum every time. The banks ding you five dollars every time you use the card. That sucks hairy lollipops.
