I will be traving from Buenos Aires to Montevideo by ferry. I want to take a taxi. Can I get Uruguay peso on the ferry? Is there an exchange or ATM in the ferry Terminal. I will be arriving about 8 PM.
The little bank at the Buenos Aires port is a kind of thief, a tourist trap. It would be better if you take money right from an ATM in Montevideo. Or you can buy some uruguayan money at Casa Piano (San Martin Street between Sarmiento Str. and Corrientes Ave. in Buenos Aires. They sell amounts equivalent to 50 dollars in pesos, in small notes.
