You'd Better Belize It

Sometimes it's hard to find a vacation that's truly affordable.  According to the Belize Tourism Board, you can do just that.

For $100 a day in the beautiful Central American country of Belize, you'll be rewarded with accommodation, transportation, activities and meals while exploring their jungles, rainforest, ancient Mayan ruins, scuba diving and snorkeling at the world's second largest Great Barrier reef.

Having been there myself, I can attest this is true.  If you're interested in nature and national parks, you might want to consider staying at the Midas Resort in San Ignacio (from $59).  Or if you'd like to stay at a resort, try the Tio Pil's Hotel  in San Pedro on Ambergris Caye (from $50) where the diving is spectacular.
