9 Where Costa Rica

If you’re still making travel plans for 2017, we may have an article that can help you out with your decision making process. Forbes has posted a list of the 30 cheapest places to go this year, giving readers a wide variety of destinations to chose from that won’t break the bank.

The list is set up in a slideshow format, with each destination given an excellent photo to help sell us on the aesthetic value of the place. The text that accompanies each of the images tells us which travel expert selected that particular location with details on why it earned a place on the Forbes list. Since this is an article about cheap destinations, things like good exchange rates, affordable accommodations, and cheap food are all part of the consideration.

So, which places made the cut? A few of the destinations that are deemed hot spots for budget travelers in 2017 include South Africa, Chile, and Morocco. All of the place of course offer outstanding value, not to mention history and culture too. Some are also fantastic destinations for outdoor adventure as well, although not all fall into that category. The three I mentioned above are prime examples, but other spots that Forbes recommend are aimed more at those interested in relaxation rather than exploration.

Of course, as alway when it comes to travel, any destination is what you make of it, and you’ll find outstanding options in each of these place. The other 27 that I haven’t revealed are up to you to discover, but I assure you you’ll find everything from hidden gems and off-the-beaten-path recommendations, to well-trodden locales that are classic travel spots for a reason.
