Paradise doesn’t have to cost a fortune; check out these cheap vacations for men so you and your boys can have a fun (and affordable) getaway

We all need to get away at some point, but money and work don’t often allow us to indulge in dream getaways on a regular basis like your buddy from college who just posted another Bali photo album up on Facebook (don’t you just hate that guy?) Paradise doesn’t have to cost a fortune however; we’ve made a list of cheap vacations for men so that you and your crew can get away and relax in style without going completely broke.
When in doubt, Mexico always has your back. And no, we’re not talking one of those crazy fraternity weekends in Tijuana either; we’re referring to a beachside weekend in Cabo San Lucas, every spring breaker’s dream. Split a room with your friends at a classy oceanfront resort and spend your afternoons under the sun and golfing, then take on the night by barhopping downtown or indulging in a classy round of drinks right on the beach. Cabo is actually one of the cheap vacations for men, with numerous hotels and resorts offering special package deals that often include airport pickup and breakfast buffets.
If you’ve got the guts, plan a boy’s week in Thailand. The most costly part of this trip will be the plane ticket, but once you’re there, everything from food and lodging to transportation and activities is extremely affordable, making this one of the cheap vacations for men. The American dollar goes a long way in Thailand, which means that you can partake in hour-long massages that cost less than ten bucks and buy endless rounds of beer at go-go bars and still go home with cash in your back pocket. If you have the time and stamina, be sure to head down south to Koh Phangan and join in on the monthly Full Moon Festival, an all-night beach rager that will bring out your inner party animal.
For an exotic (and affordable) experience unlike any other, plan a trip to Morocco. Food is reasonably priced as are trinkets and other goods, which means that you can head home with a suitcase filled with fantastic art and gifts without paying the hefty Pier 1 Imports price tag that you would be faced with back home. You can even rent an entire guesthouse for as little as a hundred bucks per night for two people, so if you get four friends to join you on this journey, you’ll be able to have even more money to set aside for spending and entertainment.
