My first major trip abroad was to Puerto Escondido, Mexico, in 2004. Coming from a frugal back-to-the-land family, I had no idea how easy and cheaply I could travel to Mexico. The flight cost around $500, and I spent three weeks traveling through Mexico for a grand total of $1000. Prices really haven't changed. We found hostel beds for $9/night, surf hotels for $30/night, and upscale hotels for as cheap as $50/night, proving you can choose the level of luxury to your taste. Let me know if you have any questions.
