Go Abroad For Less

An ecotour is a great way to see birds in their native habitat. Plan your trip as far in advance as possible, and calculate for all possible expenses

By Susan Chamberlain

Whether packing for a trek through the rain forest or a stay at a tropical resort, a little creative planning will lead you to the best value for your money.

To attend a large trip, such as one of the Project Bird Watch annual two-week excursions, you’ll need to save around $4,000 per person plus airfare ($1,000-plus). It might take you several years to save up this amount of money, so start planning early. Set aside a weekly or monthly amount, and calculate how long you’ll need to reach your goal. Consider a short-term CD as a way to build your vacation fund — and reduce your ability to dip into it.
