Traveling by yourself can seem scary if you’ve never done it before. It might even make you nervous on your second or third or tenth time. Traveling solo as woman is a unique opportunity to find out exactly who you are in completely new surroundings and without anyone around from your past to influence you. That can be a scary prospect, but the good news is there are plenty of places out there that can make you feel safe and welcome. And when in the right place, a solo trip — regardless of how long it is — has the power to benefit you for years or even a lifetime thereafter.
Here are the best destinations for female solo travel according to amazing solo female travellers who tell us why they loved travelling to these countries and their top tips.
The people in Cuba are so friendly and accommodating. Even though a lot of Cubans may not speak English, the people are always willing to help you out with directions, travel tips or food recommendations. Despite travelling alone, I felt very welcomed and entertained.
The favourite part of Cuba was Trinidad. This beautiful town illustrates the beauty and authenticity of the island perfectly. Stunning nature, colourful houses and a vibrant nightlife is what you can expect.
Another must do is taking salsa classes. Music and dance is an important part of Cuba’s culture and runs through everybody’s DNA and the best way to experience the passion and enthusiasm that characterizes the Cuban people is by partaking in the fiery dance yourself.
Cuba is a great solo travel destination for women because it is safe. Contrary to what you might have heard, the people in Cuba are very respectful to tourists. They appreciate our business and enjoy sharing their love for their island with you.
* Cuba is generally very safe and keeping your valuables out of sight and being aware of your surroundings as you would travelling anywhere are the only precautions you should need to take.
