Stretching the Dollar

By Linda Tancs

Between rising fuel costs, exchange rate woes and failing airlines, you know your travel dollars will be stretched to the limit.  So where can you get the most bang for your buck?  The Portimão area of Portugal looks pretty good.  You’ve got 5 beaches, 4 golf facilities, and the tourist mecca of Alvor, together with room rates as low as 83 euros through May.  Hire a boat from Alvor to Ria de Alvor, an estuary giving sanctuary to a number of migrating birds and flowering plants amidst the sand dunes, mud flats, and freshwater and saltwater marshes.   Top off your adventure with the local specialty of grilled sardine.  Did you know that the Portguese eat more fish than any other Europeans?  Now grab and bag and start packing. Desejo-lhe umas boas férias!
