The blue rate is the street rate. You will be changing dollars on the street. So, yes, there is a risk involved. That said, it's a fairly small risk. Though technically perhaps not legal, street changers are so common and the exchanges are so public, you're likely not to run into problems. In Buenos Aires, go to the city's main shopping street, Florida. ...

We visited Argentina in April/May 2014 and our Argentine friends helped plan our itinerary, which included BA, Montevideo, Sacramento de la Colonia, and Salta (the province and the city).
