When trying to plan a vacation, there are many factors that one might consider. Most people may want to plan an exciting and relaxing vacation but not spend an arm and a leg. Not only must the cost of flights be considered, but also the cost of the accommodation, transportation, food activities and sites. It is important to travel to a destination that allows you to stay a longer time, while enjoying a good standard and saving money. There are several wallet-friendly destinations to choose from. Here are five places that promise you all these when you visit this year.

One can visit the many jungles, ancient Mayan ruins and national parks that Honduras is known for at reasonable prices.
