Last week, the New York Times did a feature on ways to save on your next trip, calling attention to Latin America bargains. A few of our favorite destinations where mentioned: Argentina, Belize, Nicaragua, and Panama. The article noted what we've known for years -- that many times travelers can find top of the line adventures at a fraction of the price that they would pay in the US or Europe. For those looking for a great trip at a great value, here are a handful of my favorites.
