Why I Love Culture-Combined In Mexico?

Why I Love Culture-Combined In Mexico?

Sep 27, 2014

Mexico is where one can find the traditional Mexican culture combined with the elements of North American and Spanish perfectly. I love this country because it’s one of the most vibrant and colorful countries I have ever visited. The addition of Mexico into my travel itinerary never make me regret my decision. From the seediness of Tijuana, the lively nightclubs in Cancun, Mayan ruins and even the rainforests filled with howler monkeys and parrots, Mexico is not just culture-combined but beyond that. Let’s take a look at the costs of traveling there then. Cost of Accommodation Mexico is pretty popular among tourists. It’s not a surprise to find most of the hostels in the city can be around USD15 per night, but in smaller cities, the rate can be as low as USD10 for each night. If you’re looking for budget hotels in Mexico, expect to pay for about USD60 per night. This is for a double-occupancy room. If you manage to find some homestays or couchsurfing opportunities, that would be better. It means you’ll be saving more on your budget. Although Mexico is relatively cheap in term of budgeting. (image by :University of Nottingham ) Cost of Mexican Food I love Mexican food. It’s the second thing I love after Chinese, I suppose. Besides, eating out in Mexico is very affordable with local markets and street vendors everywhere. I spent only about USD15 per day when I bought food from these food-dealers. Sometimes I would be spending lesser than that. But if you’re heading to some of the tourist areas with nice sit-down restaurants, the cost for food is about USD25 per meal. The best part about Mexico is I could get cheap bad-ass tequila for only USD15! Cost of Transportation and Activities For longer journeys by buses, the fares for tickets vary according to the distance and popularity of the destination and route taken. I paid USD30 for a ride from 5.5 hour journey from Puerto Vallarta to Guadalajara. In most major cities, the taxi will charge starting from USD1 per ride. As for the activities in Mexico, diving is probably the most expensive activity in Mexico. The cost of a day-trip...

The Wild Miami City of Florida

The Wild Miami City of Florida

Sep 24, 2014

If you’re looking for Cubans, beautiful people, South Beach, cruises and a lot of parties, Miami is just for you. It is a wild city and this is where you go to worship the sun. Although it’s not one of the most cheapest cities in the States, Miami is definitely a fun place to visit. I loved relaxing in Miami, watching different kinds of tourists and locals all enjoying the culture and lifestyle of the city. So, how much does the city cost for budget travelers like us? Cost of  Accommodation I paid about USD20 per night for a hostel dorm room per night in Miami, but if you need a private double room, the price is a lot more pricey at USD120. As for cheap hotels, the lowest rate start at USD65 and it can go up to USD100. Shop around for a place to stay before you agree to pay for the rates. I’m pretty sure there are still a lot of other places where you can easily get cheaper rates. Other than that, there are a lot of home owners who are willing to let travelers to house-sit their places. I believe Couchsurfing is pretty easy to find too. (image by : Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group) Cost of Food and Transportation As for the food, paying USD20 per meal in South Beach area or any other restaurants along the coastline is considered the standard rate. I would say if you want to get a fraction of the price you pay, stay away from the main area in the city. There are a lot of fast food options in Miami, just like in the rest of America. You can get this for less than USD7. If you plan to cook your own food, expect to spend USD40-USD50 per week for groceries shopping. For delicious Cuban-style food, go to Little Havana where you can buy the food for less than USD10. As for the transportation, a single journey on bus or metro rail will cost you about USD2.25. Tips On Money Saving If you’re planning to go to Miami, there are tons of packages available for flights and hotels. I would recommend for...
