– So it's 2019 and you guys watching are probably trying to figure out where to travel to this year – So we have compiled a list of five places we recommend where you can get the most bang for your buck

You don't need to spend one billion dollars on travel This is actually from Zimbabwe and probably worth two pennies, but – Without further ado here are five budget friendly places to travel to in 2019 (upbeat music) Sinaloa, Mexico Sinaloa is a state in Mexico on the west coast along the Gulf of California

Now a lot of tourists when they go to Mexico, they go to the east side of Mexico They go to Playa del Carmen, they go to Cancun, they go to visit the Mayan Riviera Now that makes the east side of Mexico a little more expensive because of the influx of tourism But if you go to the west side of Mexico to Sinaloa, you can get incredible local culture and get away from a lot of the tourists We spent 10 days touring around Sinaloa

And it was incredible I mean, the food was just spectacular They have some of the best seafood I think in North America Sinaloa does have a bad history of being known in the news as the hub for the Mexican cartel Now this bad reputation has actually driven down prices in tourism

Good for us as travelers We never felt in danger there It felt like a wonderful region of Mexico to go explore It has nothing to do with tourism These days, Sinaloa is just bursting with color, bursting with life, bursting with amazing restaurants with night life

We were in this region for Day of the Dead, Dia de los Muertos, and Kristen and I were surrounded by a thousand locals dressed up as, like, skeletons and had skulls all over the place People were dancing in the street There were performances It felt like real authentic Mexico If you want to experience authentic Mexico on a budget, I highly recommend Sinaloa

(upbeat music) – Ecuador Ecuador is a small country that is located in the northwestern tip of South America It combines the incredible Amazon rainforest, lively towns and cities that are bursting with wildlife Ecuador is also home to the famous Galapagos Islands, which I have been to It was one of the most incredible trips I have ever taken in my entire life

But if you want to save, you're going to want to stay on mainland If you are into the beach, then Ecuador has one of South America's best beach scenes located just outside of the city of Guayaquil There are a lot of accommodations all over the country that you can find for as little as $2 per night And the currency is USD, making it easier to exchange your money before your trip (upbeat music) – Marrakech, Morocco

Morocco is located in the northern tip of Africa And it's really neat that it is the entrance into the Mediterranean and the Middle East So Morocco has a lot of influence from Europe, from the Mediterranean, from Africa, and the Middle East It's really a beautiful blend of a lot of cultures If you're going to Morocco, I highly recommend Marrakech

It was my favorite city in the country It was full of just like authentic locals living the way locals do I was really immersed in the culture If you want to feel like you're in the movie Aladdin, it was Morocco and specifically Marrakech I felt like Aladdin and Abu were just going to come out from like an alleyway and steal some bread and run away

My favorite part about Marrakech was just the authenticity of it, was that I could go to a local shop and drink tea with someone from Marrakech or I could walk through the bazaars and bargain with people over a hookah or over a shirt It was just like real Morocco And I really loved that They didn't let the tourism that's there really change their landscape, really change their local culture The tourists have to adapt to the local culture there

Marrakech is the fourth largest city in Morocco And I would recommend this city over the other major cities just because it has a huge diversity of things to do, things to eat, things to see, a good night life I always felt safe when I was there And it's very affordable If you're going to Morocco, make sure you brush up on your bartering skills

Make sure you know how to bargain because it's part of their culture If you're going to buy something, do not pay full price Remember, you are on a budget You've got to live like you're on a budget (upbeat music) – Dharamshala, India

India has always been a popular tourist destination One of my favorite countries to travel to But with a population of over one billion people, it's easy to travel around the country and not run into other tourists Dharamshala is located in the northern state of Himachal Pradesh and it is surrounded by the Himalayas and lush forest The Dalai Lama, who I fortunately got a chance to meet and study Buddhism with when I was in Dharamshala

And it is unique in the sense that it is a mixture of Indian and Tibetan culture India's immense population and low family income has made it one of the most affordable destinations in the entire world But low cost does not mean low quality You will find some of the most flavorful delicious cuisine you will ever taste Awesome accommodations and shopping

You're going to get the best bang for your buck (upbeat music) – Slovenia Slovenia is a small country in Central Europe And it's in between Croatia, Hungary, Austria, and Italy Now because it's surrounded by all these more popular destinations, Slovenia doesn't get as much love

In Slovenia, prices are still relatively low because they have a low influx of tourism and a lot less travelers visiting the area Slovenia is one of those places that really should be more popular because of how beautiful the landscape it, because of how delicious the food is I mean even Lake Bled is just an iconic Instagrammable spot to take a photograph of And when we were there, there was barely anyone around Like nobody was visiting

But it should be visited more because it's such an incredible spot While Slovenia has such low tourism, it means you as a traveler can visit this alpine nation and visit historical towns and see beautiful sights on a budget – The whole idea of needing so much money to travel the world is a bunch of B to the S – Yeah, there's tons of destinations that allow you to travel more frugally and you can still see a lot and you can still experience a lot of the culture And that's what we wanted to share with you in this video
