Here's a nice surprise: The dollar isn't quite the disaster it has been for the last few vacation seasons. Even Europe might be on sale for those holding greenbacks, as economic troubles in Greece and Spain have pushed down the value of the euro.
In May 2011, a dollar bought only 0.68 euros; today, it's at 0.78 and rising. So pack your money into a suitcase, and take it abroad this summer.
Here are five countries where the dollar is stretching especially well this year. Some are bargains, and there should be something to suit just about any vacation style.
