Countries Where the Dollar Goes Furthest in 2018

Vacations are not as cheap as they used to be. They represent a significant investment of your hard earned money. So it is important to make sure that you can stretch your dollar as much as possible so your vacation reaches its fullest potential.

This year the yen is expected to depreciate in value, making Japan a great vacation destination, especially before the hoards arrive for the 2020 Olympic Games. Japan is a great choice because the Olympics are spurring the construction of new hotels to accommodate the coming crowds. Be sure to check out the temples and hot springs! Vietnam is another great option in Asia that will be sure to save you money. Whether you’re staying in a 3-star hotel for $44 per night or getting a beer for 16 cents. Hanoi offers incredible cultural food that averages around $3 per meal. TripAdvisor recommends staying at Hanoi’s La Siesta Hotel & Spa.

Now is also the perfect time to visit Latin America, a region that is starting to rival Europe with its rich cultural experiences. Argentina offers affordable hotels that offer premier access to its classic architecture, museums, and cafes. Just outside Buenos Aires, tourists can adventure to Iguazu Falls in the tropical rainforest for an unforgettable experience. Similarly, Mexico and Costa Rica offer great destinations for low prices. A beach escape to Costa Rica is a great investment while its currency is valued at 23% less than the US dollar.
