Where to change money in Mendoza over a weekend /Public Hol

Hello, We are arriving in Mendoza late on a Saturday (by bus) and leaving early Tuesday - the Monday is a Public Holiday. Can anyone suggest where we may be able to change money. Xoom opening hours are not really going to work and we are staying in Chacras. Many thanks

Still looking for advice on this, I am concerned that we are not be able to change money before our trip, for obvious reasons I don't want to use cash machines as the rate is so much worse. Anybody have any advice? please :-)

Hello,

Just an idea: you say you are arriving by bus = from Chile, I presume?

In that case, you could try to buy some Ar. Pesos there.

It should be much more convenient than the official rate you will get through ATM's once you are in Argentina.

Was there a happy ending? I am considering using xoom but we similarly get in to Mendoza in the evening on a Saturday.
