There have been a lot of websites who have combined their best vacation spots for this year, yet only a few of them were thinking about people who were on a budget. Aside from that, people would also like to know about the places where they will not have to spend a fortune to stay and to enjoy. Below are a few of the best budget travel destinations for this year 2012 that families can look into.
Around 900 miles from the coast of Lisbon is Azores, a chain of volcanic islands that amounts to about 9 in total. This region from Portugal is autonomous and is far from the economic troubles of the mainland, which means that huge bargains can be found here for travelers. The rates of their hotels have gone down a lot since 2010, now with its five-star hotel rooms averaging to just $112 overnight. Tours around the Azores have gone down in places such as the black sand beaches, baroque churches and crater lakes.
The weather in Azores is just mild throughout the year and those who enjoy the sun will want to visit the place during the month of October as the temperatures can reach 70 degrees and daylight will last up to 11 hours.
Although it was often overshadowed by its bigger travel spot neighbors such as Costa Rica, Mexico and Guatemala, this nation which speaks English has a lot of things to recommend the casual traveler. There are hosts of exotic birds to see, with the second largest barrier reef in the world to experience and the exploration of the Mayan ruins as well. Aside from that, budget travelers will find that Belize is also one of the biggest bargain regions in the area.
The high and dry seasons in Belize span from around February up to April. People who arrive around the later weeks of May will find many sweet spots for beach-ready weather, large season discounts as well as lesser visitors.
Whale watching in the Bay of Fundy, kayak rides around the Prince Edward Island and Torngat Mountains’ wilderness hikes are some of the best activities to be done in the eastern seaboard of Canada. Yet one of the biggest attractions every year is the anniversary of the Titanic, which sank just off the Newfoundland coast.
June up to November is usually the hurricane season in the area, while September and October are the months with the highest risk. The month of June is the safest to travel as the area will be low in humidity during that time and the temperatures will peak up to 77 degrees.
