These Are the Top 6 Perfect Destinations for Solo Travelers

As scary as it may sound, traveling solo is actually so underrated.

Listen, you don’t necessarily have to be feeling like this to get some alone time:

(Although, if you are, you may definitely need a beach vacation.)

My point is, taking time to separate oneself from the stressful aspects of every day life is very important when it comes to being a healthy person. These stressors may even be other people. That’s where the solo vacation comes in!

If you’re considering doing this, which you should, take a look at our list of the top six resorts to visit by yourself.


Barcelo Bavaro Beach:

Located in Punta Cana on one of National Geographic’s 10 Best Beaches in the World, Barcelo Bavaro Beach resort is an excellent option for anyone — especially solo travelers! The adults-only property is ideal for people seeking adventure and endless activities, specifically snorkeling-enthusiasts and beach lovers.

Most of Barcelo’s 388 rooms are located right along the beach, making it perfect for some solo relaxation time with a view. Guests staying here will also receive full access to the neighboring Barcelo hotel and complimentary transportation services throughout the resort complex. This means you can change things up a bit throughout your stay and check out the other property!

Between the enormous swimming pool, multiple bars and restaurants, casino and golf course (pictured below), there’s no way you’ll get bored at Barcelo Bavaro.


Breathless Cabo San Lucas 

If we’re being honest, really ANY Breathless property is a good option for someone in search of an exciting getaway! Widely-known for their social and energetic environments, Breathless properties are amazing adults-only options.

Breathless Cabo, in particular, is located on Mexico’s Pacific coast and just moments away from downtown Cabo San Lucas — making authentic restaurants and shopping easily available to guests! Because Cabo is already known for its nightlife, this chic and vibrant resort offers incredible entertainment to guests of all kinds — singles, couples, groups of friends, etc. During your stay, you’re guaranteed to make friends if you’re up to it!

It’s also worth mentioning that El Medano Beach is known as one of the safest swimming beaches in the area, featuring stunning blue waters and powdery sands. There’s always something going on by the resort’s beach or any of the pools. (Note: both the beach and pool areas are topless optional here!) Regardless to say, entertainment is around-the-clock at this lively property. Daytime options include but are not limited to: beach volleyball, snorkeling, windsurfing, kayaking, Spanish classes, aerobics and spa treatments.

When the sun goes down, the Breathless Cabo party is just getting started. Examples of nighttime events are big screen movies by the beach, weekly theme nights, live music, gala parties, theater shows, etc.


Riu Palace Peninsula

This gorgeous resort is located at the heart of Cancun, sitting on a stretch of white sand beach and framed with crystal clear turquoise water. Already convinced? Us, too!

The lively Riu Palace is also only five minutes away from the local shopping markets of Cancun and Coco Bongo — a top nightlife venue that features live performances, drinks, confetti and themed parties.

Meanwhile at the resort itself, you could start your day off by taking care of your body at the Renova Spa. The variety of treatments to choose from include relaxation of the mind, body and soul. Looking for something more active? Get your heart pumping with activities such as volleyball, windsurfing, kayaking and snorkeling.


Body Holiday Le Sport

The Body Holiday Le Sport is an adults-only, beachfront resort that’s nestled into the northwest corner of the St. Lucia island. Seeking a break from the everyday?  This may be the destination for you.

Located on the secluded Cariblue Beach, the resort is surrounded by a quiet, soothing environment that allows for an idyllic island getaway. Guests are guaranteed to leave this luxurious resort feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and recharged.

Did you know? The Wellness Centre at the Body Holiday has been voted one of the best spas in St. Lucia. This makes the property truly perfect for those in serious need of relaxation! The resort is also a standout for single travelers, as it’s the only Caribbean resort with dedicated singles rooms with no single supplement.

The perfect solo day at Body Holiday consists of lounging on the beach, indulging in a massage, taking a meditation class and sipping drinks at the seaside bar!


Occidental Grand Papagayo Resort

This resort was at the top of the list when I consulted a few of our BeachMasters about their opinions of best resorts for solo travelers! I figured this was a good sign.

The Occidental Grand is another adults-only resort, located in Guanacaste, Costa Rica. Pictured above, you’ll see that the property is surrounded by a hillside offering spectacular views of the sea. Spend some quality time with yourself in unmatched seclusion, surrounded by the wild and natural beauty of Costa Rica’s northern Pacific coast.

There are four restaurants at the resort that offer up some of the best cuisine from Costa Rica and around the world. We can all agree that food is one of the best parts of a vacation (and life in general, honestly). You won’t hesitate to treat yourself and your taste buds with the delicious food provided here.



Secrets Silversands 

Lively. Modern. Chic.

Three words commonly used to describe Secrets Silversands Resort & Spa! This AAA 4-Diamond adults-only resort brings a very contemporary atmosphere to Cancun’s renowned Riviera Maya. Surrounded by warm crystal waters, the resort features 433 suites all holding a private furnished balcony or terrace with either an ocean, pool or garden view.

The property is filled with manicured gardens, eight gourmet restaurants, eight bars (ranging from elegant to swim-up), a world-class spa, a fitness center and two Jacuzzis — making the opportunities for pampering absolutely endless. Whether you’re staying alone or with a group, there will always be enough entertainment to fulfill your mood.

Grab a book, a drink and some shades and just lay for hours!
