Affordable Vacation Spots For Your Next Family Trip

Have you been dying to take a vacation with the family, but just didn't feel like you could afford to travel? Well do I have news for you. I have put together a list of a few of the most affordable places in the world to visit, places that even families on the tightest of budgets can afford to go to.

1.) Mexico- With a currency exchange rate of about 10.5 pesos/dollar, nothing in Mexico should cost you more than a few dollars. Their currency is basically worthless, so if you can manage to sneak a few small farm animals over the border, those should be enough to pay for the entire trip.

2.) Sudan- Now it may be a little farther away than you think you can afford but once you see the exchange rate, you'll realize why you came. Trade in your dollar and get 127 Sudanese Dinars! That should be enough to buy some nice souvenirs for the family back home, or you could just steal an authentic dung brick from the house of one of the natives.

3.) Haiti- The poorest country in the western hemisphere, Haiti is a perfect choice for that low budget vacation. Don't count on being the most liked person there, however, as the US put a stop to most of the aid it was giving Haiti after some suspect elections in 2000. Even so, it is definately a must visit, and if you are lucky you might get to see a real live rebellion.

Well, there you have it, 3 of the most affordable vacation destinations just in time for you to start planning that summer trip. Be sure to send me a postcard.
