7. Cartagena, Colombia
“I actually used to live there, but just went back. Roundtrip airfare from the Northeast was $250. You can easily get a hostel for $7–15, although we stayed in an amazing hotel for $70 a night. Food, drinks, and fun are all completely reasonable; it’s an absolutely amazing place to visit!” —Madelina Türner, Facebook
9.Europe by train
10. Czech Republic
“You can stay in hostels for less than 10 euros a night outside the capital. There’s beautiful architecture, nice people, interesting history, and, major bonus: Beer IS cheaper than water.Czech it out ;).” —Marilou D. LeBel, Facebook
