A holiday in the Caribbean has a way of sounding expensive; but not if you head to the Dominican Republic. About INR 2,500 a day – if you are a wise spender – will take care of your accommodation, travel and food. Of course, you will have to figure out where the locals eat to get your hands on those dishes and beers under INR 85. Get conversant with bus routes and take a bus into town for INR 40. Hostel options offer proximity to the beaches, complimentary Wi-Fi and even free coffee in some cases. There are other, more elaborate and reasonable deals as well, where hotels offer all-inclusive holidays in resorts with multiple dining areas, swimming pools and water sports packages.
