3 Destinations where the US Dollar goes REALLY far!
If you’ve been envying your friends vacation photos or slightly tempted to stage a beach selfie for social media, you don’t have to! Post your own jaw-dropping vacation photos with budget-friendly trips to destinations such as Bali, Chile, and Morocco!
With the American dollar being at a 14-year high, these exotic destinations are worth cashing in your vacation days. Enjoy more of the scenery and tours, flavorful cuisine and spa services since your American dollar will allow you to do and see more. An added bonus is that international flights are incredibly cheap — prices haven’t been this low since 2009!
Bali’s beaches and pristine waters are enough to warrant your entire stay but don’t miss out on what the island’s interior has to offer. There are temples to see, jungles to explore and yes, underwater worlds to explore. Your trip to Bali will create memories to last a lifetime. You can stay in private villas for as little as $50 per night or decently rated hotels for as low as $10 per night. Want to spend a little more? Choose from one of the many luxurious resorts and you still won’t spend as much as some American resorts.
This South American land mass is so varied you can have any kind of experience imaginable! From snorkeling to mountain climbing, to sunbathing to extreme pampering it’s all available at this magical destination. Visit the country’s capital, Santiago, for a more cosmopolitan experience. Museums, galleries, boutiques, restaurants and cafes will captivate you. Looking to experience the great outdoors? Make sure to visit Torres del Paine, a 700-square-mile national park in Chile’s southern Patagonia region. Enjoy horseback riding, kayaking, hiking, and mountain biking with a chance to see exotic wildlife such as the rheas and guanacos (a relative of the llama).
Morocco has to be the ultimate paradise! There’s something for everyone! Dishes seasoned with cumin, coriander, cinnamon, and turmeric are sure to delight your palate. Hire a guide for one of the many walking tours to see the beauty of Marrakech, a popular medina or “old city.” You can even stay in a home that’s been converted into a hotel for a fantastic view of the mosque-studded skyline. For seafood and water sports, travel just three hours west of Marrakech to the city of Essaouira. The northeast trade winds are almost always blowing making the water great for windsurfing and wave riding.
