For many travelers around the world, Central America (excluding Mexico since it is part of North America) goes unnoticed when contemplating a destination for their next trip or only consider those places that the media have made popular, such as Panama City and its luxurious hotels or the resorts of Costa Rica and Belize, which provide a purely artificial and quite expensive experience.

If you like adrenaline, a good option is to visit the WMDR Yungas Road, a scenic road that you can ride a bike or walk. It has incredible high altitude landscapes and beautiful waterfalls.

Cartagena de Indias
If you are thinking of cheap places to vacation in the vast South America, you will not be short of options. Moreover, these destinations offer you something that goes beyond any budget: when you land there you will feel like you are just a few steps away from what we could call paradise.
On the legendary Lake Titicaca, the largest lake in South America by volume, are the equally mythical Uros Islands. They are artificial islands on the waters of the lake, which Bolivian and Peruvian natives built in the pre-Columbian era for the purpose of habitation. The Uros are supported by reeds, so constant maintenance work is necessary to ensure buoyancy. On these islets, residents fish and hunt birds and, of course, welcome tourists with open arms. The low cost of living, coupled with an extremely rich traditional culture, make the Uros Islands one of the cheap destinations in South America that cannot be missing on your travel bucket list.
One of the perfect cheap destinations in South America to rest and relax completely. In the seaside resort of Cabo Polonio, 260 km from Montevideo, the streets are dirt roads and there is no internet or electricity (although many establishments have their own generator). Access is a bit restricted, usually reached on horseback or by 4×4, but the scenery of virtually deserted beaches, huge dunes and sea lions will make any visitor can do without all the superfluous modernities.
