If you need a break from your hectic work schedule or just from your day-to-day life, then there is no better remedy than flying to another country and exploring a new world.

New York is one of the most fast-paced cities in the world, and life in the streets of Manhattan can be exhausting and draining at times.

Don’t get me wrong; the facilities we have in NYC are matchless! But while there is nothing that the city does not offer you, it is nice to go and explore a quieter place. 

Also, if you are wondering that traveling outside the states is going to cost you a lot of money, then lighten up a little. You can visit a lot of remarkable places directly from NYC, even if you are on a budget.

In this article, I have mentioned a few trip destinations that are pretty affordable and for which you will be able to find cheap flights from NYC as well. Let’s have a look.


nature in Banff, Canada attractions

Well, if you are looking for a quick getaway, then there is no better place than the neighboring country Canada. The flights you can get from NYC for Canada are quite cheap, and the easy access to the northern part of Canada makes things even better.

You can get lost in the beautiful islands of Vancouver and Banff. Or if you want to experience the glamorous city life of Canada, then you can consider going to Montreal or Toronto

I recommend you to catch the elegant view of Niagara Falls and to embrace nature at Banff National Park. Also, if you want to explore a bit of French culture on a budget, Quebec City is the place to go. And if you love skiing, then you should go to Whistler or Mont Tremblant.

Needless to say, It does not matter what kind of traveler you are; you will find all sorts of things in Canada. The accommodation in Canada for the cities mentioned above can range from $50-$80 a night.

The best time to visit Canada is either peak summer or peak winter, depending on which region you are visiting. However, the flights are cheaper just before spring.

If you are looking to go backpacking, then this option is for you. Nicaragua is a dream destination for a lot of travelers. From hiking and surfing to relaxing on the beaches, this place will transport you to another world. I will recommend you to go to the Bluefield and catch a boat to Pearl Lagoon.

Not only will you be able to enjoy the fresh breaths on this gorgeous beach, but you will be able to escape the crowds as well because not a lot of tourists know about this hidden gem.

Also, if you love diving and snorkeling, I will recommend you to go to this small place called Little Corn Island. The flights for Nicaragua are quite cheap, and the accommodation is even cheaper as you can find rooms there for as low as $10.

While you can visit Nicaragua at almost any time of the year, if you want that adventurous experience, you should consider going in the rainy days of October.
