Tips / Travel

With each New Year comes a fresh list of low-cost destinations to visit. These not-as-popular locales draw budget travelers thanks to inexpensive flights and accommodations, enticing food cultures and free activities. Here are the latest spots that won’t drain your 2018 travel budget.


Aside from the obvious affordability of Mexico thanks to its proximity to the States, our neighbor to the south also offers a plethora of reasonable beachside resorts in towns like Cabo San Lucas.


Despite the exotic draw of Mexico, highlighted by its warm, sunny beaches, Canada should not be ruled out as a just-as-exciting option. The Canadian dollar is exercising excellent value against U.S. currency, meaning hotel rates dropped and ski and other adventure excursions are loads cheaper than similar activities in the States.


Flights from the East Coast to this Western European country are shockingly low and, once on land, the cities of Porto and Lisbon offer healthy doses of culture at fair prices.


Travel restrictions for Americans aside, Cuba is an extremely inexpensive vacation destination for what you get out of the country. With increased competition among airlines, flights to the land of mojitos, cigars and colorful street art are modest.

Oymyakon, Siberia – The Coldest Town on Earth

Oymyakon, Siberia, is literally the coldest inhabited town on Earth. The town of only 500 residents is nicknamed “The Pole of Cold” and has witnessed temperatures as low as -98 degrees.
