Have you had a mechanic confirm that your engine is indeed blown? Just because it will not start after overheating doesn't mean it is shot. It could just be a single component.
However, if it is gone then that is completely up to you. Changing an engine in a foreign car is always going to be more expensive so it is your money and choice.
All other components should be fine except maybe the radiator could be cracked.
