I was floored by the prices here during my first few weeks in Argentina. Then I did the conversion to U.S. dollars and realized that most items, especially food, are relatively affordable. Toys and electronics are usually the most expensive. Also, please keep in mind that the pricing conversion is based on the current cost of U.S. dollars as of July 1st, 2013.
