Going on an overseas adventure is surely one of the best gifts that you can ever give to yourself. However, if you have a shoestring budget, it can be a bit challenging to find the top holiday destinations that your budget will be able to afford. Good thing that Mexico happens to be among the best places where you can enjoy cheap vacations without compromising on your overall experience. Here are some South America travel tips that will help you make the most out of your Mexican adventure.

Two or More is Better Than One

Instead of going solo during your Latin America tour, you might want to invite one or two of your friends to join you. You can easily find a lot of accommodations with special triple rooms that can accommodate group of travelers. For a cheap price, you can already enjoy using some amenities. One more reason why it is better to travel with someone is the fact you can also share the expenses, whether it is a taxi ride or a restaurant bill.

Head Inland

The areas of beach resorts are priced for the foreigners while the rest of the whole country has been priced for the Mexicans. If you want to hang out by the beach and enjoy your day under the sun, you can look for one that is favored by the surfers or the locals. Puerto Escondido and smaller ones found in Oaxaca state are wonderful deals as well as those in the Gulf Coast close to Merida or those that are a couple of hours from Puerto Vallarta.

Look for Alternative Accommodation

There are some backpackers who have done home exchange with someone living in Mexico and found themselves staying in a wonderful house. There are also those who used house sitting services and they ended up taking care of pets and plants for several weeks in exchange for a good place where they can stay during their Latin America travel.

If you don’t find these suggestions great, you might want to stick around for a while in an apartment or house instead of a more expensive hotel. Particularly when you are traveling with your family or group of friends, this is certainly more economical, not to mention that you will also enjoy more space. On top of that, you will also get to experience how it is like to be a local, living in an actual neighborhood and not staying in the heart of the business or tourist zone.

Enjoy a Big Lunch

During your travel adventure, you will discover that the meal of the day is considered as a staple all over Latin America that comes in different forms. However, basically, this is composed of a bowl of soup, main dish with rice and beans and the fresh tortillas. You can save a lot when you order this and still enjoy some fresh drinks and dessert. You will surely fill full after eating and can get by even without a big dinner as this lunch is actually an afternoon thing instead of noon.

Having cheap holidays in Mexico is very possible so long as you know some of these tips that will help you enjoy the wonderful place on a budget.
