    This is a simple way I've found on youtube (see video at the end of the solution).
    It worked for me, and I've done it using only one bucket to carry lava and water.

    EDIT: After the Title Update 12 in the tutorial level you can find a bucket in the castle, and a lava pool near the sea after the castle.

    In the Brewing Room there is a chest with a bucket:

    On the other side of the castle you can see the sea, a lake, and a lava pool:

    Empty DI never saw the lake or lava pool from the castle. Do you mean another castle, or has a new update changed all this?

    MusquitoThe update has a new tutorial world. The lava pool is not there anymore. You will have to dig and eventually you will find lava. There is a lot of lava underground.

    Method 1:

    Items needed:
    14 Obsidian
    Flint & Steel

    Gaining Obsidian

    In order to gain Obsidian you need to find a place underground where lava mixes with water, and then mine said spot. Said block looks like this

    Although in order to mine Obsidian you need to mine it with a Diamond pickaxe. To gain a diamond pickaxe you need to mine 3 diamond rocks with an iron pickaxe or higher and then craft them using the crafting machine. Diamond rocks looks like this

    Gaining Flint & Steel

    Flint & Steel is created by using flint and an iron ingot (Derived from Iron ore) in a crafting machine.

    Building the Portal

    With your Obsidian blocks build the basic portal shape, 4 blocks wide and 5 blocks tall. Then use your flint & Steel on top of one of the Obsidian blocks on the bottom of the portal. The empty space inside the portal will turn purple and voila, achievement unlocked.

    Method 2:
    Friend who has a nether portal already constructed

    Join your friends world and meet him at the portal, if the portal is alight (Purple glow in the empty space) mine away an obsidian block and when the block is replaced the portal will be unlit.

    Grab your flint & steel and simply re-light the portal. This will net you the achievement.

    Update #1 - Credit to Eskimoletdinov

    Instead of finding a unique mine in which both water and lava co-exist it is possible to bring along buckets of water, and use them on the lava to make Obsidian. Be careful though as you may slip into the lava and die!

    To create buckets you need to have iron ore, then smelt it into an iron ingot, and then create a bucket with it in the crafting table.

    SmedsYou can make the portal with 10 Obsidian blocks and a flint and steel. Your frame is 4 blocks wide by 5 blocks tall. The corners can each be any block you want, and the rest of the frame is 10 blocks of Obsidian.

    This is a guide on how to get this achievement WITHOUT DIAMOND. It's very hard to explain in words so I've included a video of the steps down below. Any questions feel free to leave a comment and I will answer.
