If you’re in the market for a vacation home, there are some amazing places in the world where you can get incredible value for money. Real estate rules vary from country to country, so it all depends on what you’re looking for in a place. Here are 10 of the best places to buy a vacation home right now.

1. Mexico

Mexico’s beautiful beaches and relaxed attitude make this country one of the most alluring for prospective vacation home buyers. Added to that, US citizens can live in the Tijuana-Ensenada corridor visa-free. This makes purchasing a home along this coast one of the best bets around, and traveling up to the US is as easy as a drive or walk across the border. Further south, in destinations like Puerto Vallarta or Cancun, the area has been built up for tourists and you’ll be able to find just about everything you could want there.

2. Cyprus

This island in the Mediterranean is a sun-soaked, delightful gem. The house rental and purchase prices can’t be beat, and if you’re looking for a taste of Cypriot life this is one of the best bets available in the Mediterranean. Many houses on Cyprus come equipped with a swimming pool and are near the beaches so you’re able to vacation in style.

3. Portugal

From the steep, mosaic-tiled streets of Lisbon to the natural wonders of the Algarve, Portugal is one of the most exciting destinations for visitors. The wine is delicious, the food fresh and cheap, the coffee some of the strongest you’ll ever encounter. Lisbon is poised to become a world startup hub and with its endless beaches, its cheap food and drinks, and its low-priced real estate, the Portuguese capital beckons to people all over the world.

4. South Korea

This may seem like a strange addition amidst all the tropical destinations, but South Korea is still one of the world’s best-kept secrets. The technological mega-city of Seoul is crammed full of things to see and do. It’s impossible to be bored in the city, with its all-you-can-drink wine buffets and innovative movie theaters. For those who love technology and convenience, Seoul is the place.

5. Thailand

Thailand is the age-old destination for those looking to jet off to an exotic beach and experience a low-cost life among the palms. In Thailand, foreigners cannot own their houses, so unless you are looking to invest in a condo it might not be the best option. If you’re just looking to have fun, Thailand offers incredible value for money.

6. Malaysia

Malaysia is not as well-known as Thailand, but this destination includes the Malaysia My Second Home program, where foreigners can truly move and settle into the country. Combine tropical beaches with English as the primary language and you’ve got yourself a ticket to paradise.

7. Cyprus

This island in the Mediterranean is a sun-soaked, delightful gem. The house rental and purchase prices can’t be beat, and if you’re looking for a taste of Cypriot life this is one of the best bets available in the Mediterranean. Many houses on Cyprus come equipped with a swimming pool and are near the beaches so you’re able to vacation in style.

7. Costa Rica

Costa Rica’s motto, Pura Vida, tells you everything you need to know about life in this beautiful country. The low cost of living makes purchasing real estate in Costa Rica a breeze. These experiences, paired with extremely good infrastructure including world-class healthcare makes this tropical nation an appealing option.

8. Florida Keys

The Keys are the tried-and-true part of the US that will always have people coming back year after year to experience the fun and hedonism of the island lifestyle. A house here will set you back a pretty penny, but you’ll be the sole owner and you won’t have to leave the country.

9. Cape Breton

This area of the world is much colder than the others, but it makes up for that in history and style. Houses on Cape Breton aren’t all that expensive, and the breathtaking scenery when the leaves change is not to be missed.

10. Hawaii

The islands of Hawai’i are some of the most varied on the planet. Houses are a variety of costs, too; you can spend millions, but you can also find spectacular deals on the Big Island for next to nothing. This also means that you won’t need to leave the country to escape, even though the islands are far away.
