This chart shows The Vox Vacation Index by Country.
A vacation is a leave of absence from a regular occupation, or a specific trip or journey, usually for the purpose of recreation or tourism. People often take a vacation during specific holiday observances, or for specific festivals or celebrations. Vacations are often spent with friends or family.
The concept of taking a vacation is a recent invention, and has developed through the last two centuries. Historically, the idea of travel for recreation was a luxury that only wealthy people could afford. In the Puritan culture of early America, taking a break from work for reasons other than weekly observance of the Sabbath was frowned upon.
Currency depreciation often leads to inflation — higher prices — in which case your dollars might buy more pesos without actually buying you more steak. That's why we created the Vox Vacation Index, which combines exchange rate and inflation information.
