  • -  Cheap (but comfy) beach bungalows for US$4-$8 per night
  • -  The cheapest beer: Two pints for a dollar 
  • -  Great restaurant dinners for a buck or two 
  • -  Museums that cost 25 cents
  • -  A PADI 5-day open water diving certification course for under $300

The Archaeological Institute of America invites seniors to explore magnificent ancient sites with AIA scholars. AIA Tours programs enable you to explore spectacular archaeological sites and architectural wonders in-depth with leading archaeologists.  Visits to leading museum collections further enhance your experience. With AIA Tours seniors experience more than is possible on your own, and you share your discoveries with a small group of fellow participants who share your interests. AIA Tours offer in-depth land trips that range from comfortable to ultra-luxurious, cruises aboard outstanding small ships that can dock and anchor at historic ports and towns that larger ships simply cannot visit, and for those accustomed to flying first class we offer extraordinary adventures aboard private planes
