← Back to ‘Best Places to Travel Solo`

Solo travel can be intimidating, especially if you’ve never done it before. But at the end of the day, solo travel is an experience like no other (and one that we highly recommend)! It allows you to visit a destination on your own terms, which helps you discover more about yourself (and often, the place that you’re visiting). It also pushes you out of your comfort zone, and you might surprise yourself by accomplishing some things you didn’t know you were capable of. So… For the newcomers to solo travel, we’ve curated a list of our favorite places to visit on your own.

Costa Rica

Known for its vast rainforests and vibrant ecosystem, Costa Rica is a beautiful place to explore on your own. Immerse yourself in a Pura Vida lifestyle, and adventure by foot, kayak or horseback. No matter how many times you visit, you’ll always find that there’s more places to explore.

Iceland

The beauty of the country is impossible to ignore, and you’ll find yourself never wanting to leave the sweeping and dramatic landscapes. Explore the “land of fire and ice” by visiting incredible sites like Reykjavik, Jökulsárlón, the Blue Lagoon and more.

New Zealand

We can’t get enough of this gorgeous country, and it’s hard to not get swept away immediately by the incredible landscapes. The islands are sparsely populated yet easily accessible, which makes them the perfect spot to lose yourself on your solo adventure.
