Destinations like Bora Bora and the Bahamas can offer Vitamin D, clear water, and all the amenities you can shake a cocktail stirrer at, but all that relaxation comes at a steep financial price, which means you may be more stressed when you actually come home. Get the most bang for your travel buck by following our lead to these beautiful and entirely affordable countries, where adventures and luxury won't put you in debt.
Serious thrills – from climbing volcanoes like Gunung Agung on Bali or Mount Rinjani on the neighboring island of Lombok to surfing legendary breaks at Bali's Uluwatu or Java's G-Land – come cheap on the world's largest archipelago. Sure, it can cost a pretty penny to get yourself to Indonesia. But once you're here, excellent accommodations can easily be had for about $60 per night. Tours are even cheaper here than in nearby Malaysia and Thailand, roughly ten dollars gets you a very decent massage, and you can rent a motor bike for around $5 per day. You'll eat like a king for the cost of a donut back home.
