It is now possible to travel the Maldives on a budget and stay in a local guesthouse


In 2010, when I was working as a scuba dive instructor in a resort on the Maldives I was wondering why it´s not possible to travel the Maldives in a cheaper way. There are many divers out there who don´t need the luxury of a 5-star resort. Not being able to book a bed in a basic accommodation like a homestay, hostel or guesthouse, prevents them from going on a scuba dive holiday to this amazing dive destiny. 

Recently, I figured out that there are some local islands on the Maldives where guesthouses and homestays have been opened. This makes it possible to travel the Maldives on a budget and experience the local culture! I decided to check it out for my fellow ´splashpackers´ and share my experience about it.
