This story is for travelers who yearn to have a private jet lifestyle on a Holiday Inn budget.
For those who want to globetrot like a supermodel or celebrity, skipping blithely from Milan to Monaco, to Paris and Cannes.
O.K., to be fair, all of those places are probably still a tad pricey.
But as TravelPulse's Founder and CEO Mark Murphy reveals there are a handful of regions around the world that are incredible values this year, where a strong U.S. dollar will go shockingly far - allowing you to rent that palatial, celeb-worthy hotel suite for a paltry $100.
Three regions in particular top Murphy's list of 2016's best bang for your buck travel destinations. They are Mexico, Southeast Asia and Africa.
Let's start with Mexico, which admittedly, might not be all that surprising in terms of its appearance on his value-seeker's travel list. The U.S. dollar has long been stronger than the peso. Still, during the past year alone, the peso has lost more than 20% of its value relative to the dollar.
"You get about 18 pesos to a dollar right now," says Murphy. "Go back 10 years and it might have been about 11 pesos to the dollar. And about one year ago, it was 13 pesos to the dollar. You look at that kind of appreciation and realize Mexico has become a massive value."
Add to that the fact that Mexico is easy to access from the U.S. and the relatively inexpensive airfares to the country, which Murphy says can be around $500 to $600, and suddenly your luxurious Mexican vacation is starting to come into full focus.
One important qualifying note here however, crowded touristy locales such as Cancun, do not necessarily offer the same bargain as what some in the travel industry refer to as "real Mexico" - places such as Tulum, Riviera Maya, Chiapas and Merida.
"In places like Cancun and traditionally popular tourist resorts, there is no difference in the prices, because they're priced in U.S. dollars," explains David Capaldi, president of Discover Latin America. "The bargains or values take effect in the lesser visited destinations because they're priced in pesos."
Case in point, Merida. Never heard of it? Perhaps it's time you did some homework.
Located about three hours west of Cancun, the 500-year-old, historic colonial city is oozing culture and charm, says Capaldi. A vibrant destination, Merida offers great entertainment, pretty beaches (that are uncrowded) and plenty of activities including visiting Mayan ruins and hacienda tours.
"More and more Americans are going there," Capaldi continues. "We're seeing more interest from travelers who want to experience something in Mexico besides the run of the mill Cancun beach resorts."
