From budget getaways in Spain to the trip of a lifetime to the Galapagos and Machu Picchu

Here comes our selection again with the best travel deals of the week. And it should be noted that, as summer approaches, prices become more aggressive, but, at the same time, availability decreases. Summer is starting to heat up and if you don't hurry, you may not find what you are looking for.

This week's finds, as you'll see, are all very tempting. They are not only for the summer holidays, there are also very powerful opportunities to take advantage of the scarce month that remains of spring. Beach, mountain, urban getaways, cheap trains, exclusive cruises... it's up to you.

This week we wanted to find a city break that was good, cute and cheap. With this offer to Salamanca that we propose, all three requirements are met. It is good because it is about apartments with very good reviews on the net; It is beautiful because the situation is unbeatable: in the historic center of the city, a short distance from the cathedral, and lastly, it is cheap because it has a series of discounts that lead to a final price per apartment starting at €69. during the week and from €119 on the weekend.

The price includes the night in an apartment of 30 square meters very well equipped, with bedroom, living room and kitchen.

In Caleta de Fuste, on the beachfront, to the east of the island of Fuerteventura, we find the Ereza Mar hotel (adults only). There they offer us to spend a few days of authentic relaxation and rest, since this is an all-inclusive offer. You won't have to worry about anything, except enjoying its natural parks, its more than 70 beaches -some with white sand and others with volcanic sand- and its impressive lunar landscapes capable of relaxing even the most restless traveler. And if you want to stay at the hotel, remember that it has two swimming pools -one of them infinity-, a pool bar, a sun terrace facing the sea, a gym and a chill-out area with jacuzzis.

Includes 3 nights in a room for 2 people with a balcony or terrace on an all-inclusive basis (breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks).
