Vacation is a time to escape from reality and treat oneself to a taste of the good life, if you can afford to. Unfortunately, many luxury vacations come with extremely high prices that make them unreasonable for most people. Luckily, if you pick the right destinations and look for the best possible deals, you can go on a vacation with unparalleled experiences, without breaking the bank. You’ll certainly experience a taste of the good life without the high price tag usually paid by the wealthy and elite. Here are 11 cheap places where you can vacation like royalty.
If you are looking for an adventurous vacation with a lot of fun outdoors activities and without a huge price tag, Belize is a great option to consider. Such a trip would be well suited for water lovers, as there are aquatic attractions such as snorkeling, kayaking, and diving. The Pelican Beach Resort offers a double-room stay in a cottage for as low as $258 per night, including meals. Some of the cottages overlook a large coral reef and the waters around it. Alternatively, you can stay at the Caribbean Villas Hotel for a little over $100 per night if that better fits your budget. If you are travelling with children, you can book family vacation packages, some of which give you a full week in Belize, including meals and activities, for under $5000. If you are more interested in planning your own independent activities, one of the most highly recommended attractions is touring the Actun Tunichil Muknal caverns. This can be a bit pricy, at about $110-130 per person, but this does include safety equipment instruction, a guide who can offer historical insight, lunch, and transport from and back to your hotel, so it is a great way to fulfill your curiosity for adventure which is well worth the price.
