Under $100: Vila de Gràcia, Barcelona, Spain

In a popular city like Barcelona, it can be easy to get swept up in the fray of the “Old City” (Ciutat Vella), where most tourists concentrate their time. But about a mile northwest of the center is a neighborhood called Vila de Gràcia, where residents are able to find a bit of tranquility away from the crowds, and therefore experience a more authentic environment for visitors.

Under $100: Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Spain

Just off the western coast of North Africa is a chain of islands that, although they belong to Spain, feel worlds away from the mainland. Majestic volcanoes, serene beaches and variety from island to island make the Canary Islands a worthy vacation destination. When opting to visit the island of Tenerife and when not hiking along the rugged coastline or climbing to Spain’s highest point, including the mainland, spend a day in the port city of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, one of the biggest towns on the island, and you can do so on a budget.
