So, you’ve found the secret: the best way to connect to the world is to visit it alone. Whether you’re thinking about trying your first solo trip or you’ve been bopping around the globe by yourself for years, it never hurts to learn a few new tips to make your next getaway better than your last.
Tip number one: don’t be fooled – the Caribbean isn’t just for couples and family holidays. Solo travellers can experience Jamaica, Mexico, Barbados, Dominican Republic and beyond with all the independence and connection they want.

Flying Solo? These are Our Favourite Caribbean Stays for Single Travellers
Specializing in the vacation experience that lasts long after you’ve returned home and unpacked, the award-winning bodyholiday Saint Lucia is the ultimate wellness retreat in the Caribbean. It boasts one of the few resort guestrooms designed specifically for solo travellers in mind! Enjoy a daily spa treatment included in your stay and meet like-minded travellers while you take part in sports, sailing, tai chi, group fitness classes, wine tastings, and colourful healthy meals.
2. Breathless Resort & Spas
Punta Cana, Montego Bay, or Cancun? Why not try them all! We love Breathless Resort & Spas for solo travellers because of their unique social atmosphere. Unlike many family and couples’ oriented all-inclusive resorts, Breathless guests tend not to just stick to themselves. Far from it! With loads of fun spaces and events to enjoy, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to mingle, while still being able to enjoy some precious me-time whenever you feel like it.
3. Dover Beach, Barbados
Barbados is well-known and loved for its boutique hotel accommodations. Among them, BIPOC-owned and woman-led Dover Beach stands apart as a must-stay for solo travellers. With rooms and rates perfectly designed for one, the 59-room hotel is just a stone’s throw from St. Lawrence Gap. So, whenever you’re in the mood to make some new friends, take a short walk to the popular restaurants and nightlife hotspots around the corner.
4. Oh! Cancun the Urban Oasis
Escape the travel routine with a stay in this trendy downtown hotel. Oh! Cancun the Urban Oasis is ideally located for travellers who enjoy adventuring further than the well-beaten path to experience local cultures and attractions beyond the beach.
