Do you want an amazing vacation but you are on a tight budget? You don’t need to fly to another continent to do it, in South America there are fantastic places to visit. Here are 10 budget destinations to visit.
But the picture is very different in other beaches and in the city center. You can find rooms for two people from 15 dollars a night in hostels, while mid-range hotels start at 30 dollars.
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.
In this place you can also find fairly inexpensive accommodations: a double room in a hostel costs from 10 dollars, while a mid-range hotel can cost 30 dollars per night.
Latin America has an infinite number of places and cultures to discover. In general, it is an area where it is quite economical to travel, although everything will depend on how much you want to spend and the currency of your country of origin.
And if you plan to visit each of these places, but you want it to be cheap, the best thing to do is to look for cheap accommodations, without spending too much on hotels, meals or other extra activities that will increase the price of your trip.
If you decide to have a coffee in any of its restaurants or bars, it will be around 12 BOB (1.40 €), while a half liter of beer will cost you 14 BOB (1.70 €). As you can see, it is almost more expensive to drink than to eat, so don’t miss the opportunity to fill up on local food.

FoodEating in Bolivia is very cheap. For me, the best option is to eat at the market stalls or at the “family lunch” places, where they will serve you a starter + main course + soup + dessert for USD 3 or less. Depending on where you come from, maybe the first few days you will find that they are not the cleanest places, but there is no doubt that the food is very fresh since most of the people eat there and there is a large rotation. ExcursionsThe most important thing that can make your budget skyrocket in Bolivia are the tours you take, since there are some places you will surely want to visit and you cannot go alone, such as the Uyuni Salt Flat, for example, a classic 3 days / 2 nights tour to the Uyuni Salt Flat will cost you between USD 80 – 120, plus the entrance fee to the Eduardo Avaroa Andean Reserve, which costs another USD 22. This can be reduced by bargaining (as I said before, it is essential in Bolivia), getting a price if you travel with someone else and not entering the Reserve, but to give you an idea, the excursions are what can add the most to your budget.Discover 16 things to do in Bolivia, the cheapest country in South America and be sure to read these tips to combat altitude sickness.2- Paraguay
