Are you yearning to go on holiday this summer? But you don’t have the budget to go on a holiday? The good news is that holidays and travel plans do not have to be extremely expensive. There are many destinations around the world, which will be quite light on your bank account. This article will guide you through a few of these destinations. 

The first one of these is the city of Merida in Mexico. It is located approximately three and a half hours west of Cancun, which is a popular tourist destination. This vibrant city located in the state of Yucatán is sprawling with rich colonial heritage, including churches and old buildings. The most famous of these is the Casa de Montejo, which is a 16th-century colonial-era mansion.

There are plenty of inexpensive food options across the city. If you are looking to devour some extremely cheap and utmost authentic options, walk to the central plaza where you will find plenty of options! Budget-friendly activities in the area include going to the many museums which are spread across the city. The best part is that most of them are free and even the paid ones have very minimal entry fees. 

Another budget-friendly option is Costa Rica. This country in Central America has been growing in popularity among tourists and for good reason! There are immaculate beaches across the country, where you can sunbathe or immerse yourself in water activities all day long. If the beaches start to bore you, you can also take an overnight hiking trip and appreciate the many waterfalls the country has to offer. If you are looking for more adventure, you can even explore caves in the rainforests.
