10 Best and Cheapest Countries for Backpackers


2. Nicaragua

While Nicaragua is not very popular tourist destination and it’s not full of travelers, it’s one of the best and affordable countries for every backpacker. It’s a perfect destination for those who want to experience a mix of wildness and peace, wide open spaces, breathtaking natural views and colonial cultures without breaking the bank.

Go to Granada to see the unique colonial buildings. Laguna de Apoyo, a fantastic volcanic lake in Masaya, is within a 20-minute drive from Granada. If you are planning to visit Nicaragua, the best time to do it is from December to February when it’s dry and the temperatures are about 32 degrees.
