The country’s financial crisis has taken another turn for the worse with the government closing banks April 21 to prevent a run on pesos, and people rushing to ATMs trying to withdraw their savings before it becomes impossible. The situation got so bad that in one case thieves actually stole an entire machine from a shopping mall in Buenos Aires. The bank rush was heaviest in the capital city. Travelers should bring cash dollars, which are readily accepted at many hotels, restaurants, and other businesses. When the banks reopen ATMs should be reliable for obtaining currency.
