Where To Take A Vacation If You’re Young And Broke
It's not too late to start thinking about a winter get away or maybe planning for one next year. What? Your short on cash and can't afford a vacation? Well, as always, here I am to rescue you. I found a list of 16 affordable places to go if you're young, broke, and want to travel the world.
Now, I've never traveled outside of the United States. I've been to Hawaii. That's still in the United States. I also just turned 41. My travel clock is ticking (stomping my foot). Here are some of the most affordable places to go on the list...
1. Marrakech, Morocco
Trip advisor named Marrakech as the number one travel destination in the 2015. You'll want to go between October and May as the places to stay will drop their rates, and the food is amazing and will fit into any budget.
2. Madrid, Spain
Even though Europe is considered to be an expensive continent, Spain is considered to be relatively cheaper. The best months to travel there are September, October, April and May.
Cuba is one of the most popular tourist destinations and now flights from the U.S. have finally resumed after over half a century. Even if you go for the last minute deals or plan a package trip, Cuba is going to be quite affordable. The best months to travel are September to November and January to March.
4. Arizona, USA
Arizona is hands down the most beautiful state in the U.S. It has it all, from forests to deserts and there's something for everyone. Hike or camp or get a hotel room or timeshare, either way the rates of accommodations have gone down in recent years. Just don't go from June to August unless you like it hot!
5. Bali, Indonesia
Bali is an island province of Indonesia and a popular tourist destination. With accommodations and food being extremely cheap, it's popular with the younger crowds. If you're a coffee lover, then this might be the place for you -- coffee is found in abundance on the nearby island of Java. Check it out in April, May, September and October.
6. Medellin, Colombia
Okay, so the first thing one thinks of when Colombia is mentioned is cocaine and drug trafficking. Infamouse for being a dangerous place thanks tot drug lords like Pablo Escobar, Colombia is improving its reputation and places like Medellin, Bogota and Cali are very affordable for tourists.
