What are the cheapest international destinations from the United States?


America's southern neighbour is a popular and cheap place to go from the States. Cancun on the east coast is the party centre, hugely popular among younger travellers, but the rest of the country has a much different vibe. From ancient temples and ruins to Spanish architecture and glorious landscapes, there's plenty to see and do between your quesadillas and mezcal.


Likewise, America's northern neighbour is incredibly cheap to get to (if not so cheap once you land). In terms of size, Canada and America are roughly the same, but Canada has around 10% of the population. Much of this is found in the bustling cities of Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver, however the smaller towns, isolated villages and ski resorts are all worth visiting too.


Cuba is a country that's only just opened up to the world, but flights from Miami to Havana are extremely affordable and an easy way to get a glimpse at a different culture. Find out about the country's revolutionary history, see why the cigars are so popular and wander the cities to admire its unique architecture.
