3. La Paz, Bolivia

Because the city is over 4000 m above sea level, La Paz is pretty high. But despite the high altitude of this Bolivian city, you can experience it with a low budget. Meals can be bought at “almuerzo” (or lunch) kitchens for less than $5. (Note that lunches are the biggest meals and more similar to our dinners.) Even meals at budget-level restaurants will cost you no more than $10. In central La Paz, there are plenty of choices of hostels and budget hotels, ranging from $20-$50.
