For U.S. travelers going on vacation this summer, two spots in the Top 10 are on the Yucatán Peninsula.

A TripAdvisor survey also found that 88 percent of U.S. citizens plan to take a vacation this summer, up 6 percent over 2015.

TripAdvisor found that late August is the most budget-friendly time to visit the destinations these year, with six of the 10 least expensive summer weeks starting Aug. 22.

Looking at search and booking data, TripAdvisor came up with a list of these 10 places — split between domestic and overseas destinations. They also calculated the cost of a week’s vacation, using average costs for round-trip airfare, hotel, meals and tours.

1. Las Vegas ($2,224)

2. Cancun, Mexico ($2,480 — slightly less on its cheapest week, Aug. 22-28)

3. Orlando, Fla. ($1,932)

4. Punta Cana, Dominican Republic ($3,098)

5. Myrtle Beach, S.C. ($2,304)
