Sometimes you have to get away. There’s no time to find a buddy to join you on your trip, or you just want some alone time. But solo travel has become much more commonplace, whether you’re in need of a respite or you’re a business traveler looking to extend your visit. And what better place for a solo trip than the warm, inviting Caribbean, where there are countless adventures awaiting you?
Where to get on the water
Cabarete, Dominican Republic
The coolest corner of the Dominican Republic is a surfing Mecca, and it’s arguably more about kitesurfing than anything else nowadays (with operators like GoKite). And when you’re not on the water, there’s a rich nightlife in town, always buzzing with activity. Where to Stay: Millennium Resort and Spa.
One could argue that this is the Caribbean capital of watersports, thanks to its warm, flat, inviting water, and none more popular than windsurfing, the perfect activity for a solo adventure traveler. This is also a friendly island where you’ll feel welcome the minute you arrive. Where to Stay: Boardwalk Small Hotel Aruba.
