We’ll just stick to reasonably priced destinations we’re familiar with. We have listed the top 10 cheapest countries not only because they’re a good bargain but because they’re safe and amazing destinations to explore regardless of the cost. Take a look!

Colombia is a wonderful country to travel to (and no, it is nothing at all like Netflix’s Narcos, a show that was set 50 years ago!).

In Colombia, you can find a bit of everything, i.e., having both a Pacific and Atlantic coast, the Amazon rainforest, and also the start of the Andes Mountain range. You also have Medellín and Bogota, as well as the warmth and vibrancy of Colombian culture. It is, indeed, one of the best budget-friendly travel destinations in the United States.

Albania’s pristine coastline, peculiar capital, youthful Ottoman-era towns, and remarkable Alps offer so many reasons to go.

Mexico is recognized for its beach resorts like Cabo, Cancun, and Tulum. They’re amazing, though these tourist-priced places are only “cheap” if you compare them to Miami or Hawaii. Many people would consider that a good deal, but if you truly want cheap, you must explore other parts of Mexico. You can also save more if you book your Mexico flight tickets through Akbar Travels.

Approx Budget: approximately $65 per day

Highlights: Hopping around the Yucatan, Mexico City, and Oaxaca for foodies

When to go: peak season is from June to September, and January — shoulder season is from October to November, and April to May.

6. Argentina

It is considered one of the cheapest countries to visit in 2023! Its budget has seen more ups and downs than a yo-yo. But for foreign tourists with Western currencies, it still means Argentina is extremely cheap. Much of its demand is enjoying the European-like development (Buenos Aires was once recognized as “the Paris of the south”) but paying far below what one would expect.

Approx Budget: $50 per day

Highlights: Patagonia, Buenos Aires, and Iguazu Falls.

When to go: peak season is from November to February, shoulder season is from September to October, and spring season is from March to May.

7. Nepal

Just like the Dracula it inspired, the remarkable Transylvania region has a lot for you to sink your teeth into.

This is again one of the cheapest countries to visit in 2023! Morocco is a short flight from Europe and relatively inexpensive to visit. That is if you manage to escape the pushy salesmen trying to sell you expensive rugs and trinkets! If you only go on prearranged tours, you may find Morocco to be quite reasonably priced, but expenses drop significantly when traveling independently.

Approx Budget: $40 per day
