Sometimes time away alone is necessary. Whether you are newly single, seeking out other singles, or just need some quiet time alone, you want to find the right place to go to meet your needs.
Here are some great vacation destinations if you are traveling solo:
1. Cancun (Spring Break)
If you want some fun in the sun to drown out your sorrows, take a trip to Cancun in Mexico. This popular vacation destination is basically synonymous with spring break.
The crystal clear waters offer just about every water activity imaginable, from windsurfing and kayaking to scuba diving. If history is interesting to you, do a little exploring with a tour of the local Mayan culture.
Meeting other singles is easy in Cancun as well. You can even book a special club tour. Everything is included; your driver will pick you up from your hotel, drive you to various clubs where entrance fees and drinks are covered, and makes sure you make it safely back that night.
2. Club Med (Turks & Caicos)
Similar to Cancun, Turks & Caicos is an excellent tropical getaway for single adults, especially when you stay at Club Med.
The goal of the resort is to welcome adults (most popular ages are 20’s and 30’s) who wish to meet other people and simply want to have fun. It’s basically like summer camp for adults.
There are various water activities available as well as beautiful sleeping accommodations. There are also a few bars, shops, clubs, and a theater. You can always find something to do if you wish, or you can just relax and do nothing at all.
3. Las Vegas
A trip to Vegas can be a great way to spend time with friends but it can also be just what you need if you are traveling alone. There’s no need to plan a schedule around differing opinions; you can take as much time as you want doing exactly what you want to do.
If you time your trip right, you can spend some time by the pool in the sun before hitting up The Strip and Cirque du Soleil at night.
However, if you’re not feeling particularly social or adventurous, you could just blow all your money on a night of drinking and gambling.
Sometimes when you have your heart broken you don’t want to be cheered up; sometimes what you need is a bit of time to wallow in your sorrow before you’re ready to get back up again.
Scotland may be just the place to get what you need. With the abundance of rain and plenty of whiskey distilleries, you are sure to be feeling better in no time.
Now Scotland isn’t all depressing; in fact, it is quite beautiful and inviting. There is so much greenery and rich history to be explored if culture is your cup of tea.
It can also be a great place for singles to meet each other. There are several tours you can join to meet other people. The country is also full of young internationals thanks to their thriving hostel culture. Not only can you find a cheap place to stay but you can also have a way to interact.
5. Go on a Cruise
A cruise is by far one of the best ways to meet other singles on vacation. Not only do you get to see exotic locations in both cold and warm destinations (depending on what you like), but you also have a variety of activities to enjoy as well as good food and drink.
Many cruises also offer activities that are specifically geared toward solo travelers of all ages. You can also hit up the on-deck and on-shore clubs to get in some drinking and dancing.
