Reader’s Digest names Azores “top budget destination in 2018”

The Azores archipelago has been named the “top budget destination in 2018” by American magazine Reader’s Digest.

“Filled with fantastic and cheap food, wine, attractions and accommodations, the Azores islands are our top choice for budget destination in 2018,” says Jessica Bisesto, senior editor at the travel deals finder TravelPirates, who helped the magazine compile the list.

“Off the coast of Africa in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, these islands are great for nature lovers and couples looking for romantic getaways, these gorgeous islands offer visitors impeccable views, unspoiled beaches, and coastal towns,” Bisesto writes.

She also says prices for stays at three-star hotels start from $63 per night (€52) and a “nice meal in a restaurant” costs around $8 (€6.6).

Malaysia, Argentina, Slovenia, Nepal, Colombia, Estonia, Peru, Albania, Guatemala, Mexico, Sri Lanka, Chile and Morocco are the other destinations included in the list.
