The fall in exchange rate of the rupee has affected travel plans of many who dreamed of visiting destinations abroad. However, there are some scenic nations with several tourist attractions where the Indian rupee is valued higher than the local currency. A visit to these places ensures that the Indian traveller does not end up with a hole in their pocket.

Costa Rica

Flanked by the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean, Costa Rica is a country flaunting several mountains, hills, and rain forests. The capital, San Jose, houses several cultural centres. Among the major attractions is the pre-Colombian Gold Museum.
