Cuba is the #1 Place for Female Solo Travelers
A few years ago, the idea of holidaying solo seemed a lonely prospect, and for female travellers it was also potentially dangerous. But improved infrastructure and growing confidence have helped the solo travel market explode, with more men and women choosing to embark on adventures alone.
Hostelworld has revealed a 42% increase in solo travel bookings over the past two years, and according to their data, female solo bookings grew 45% between 2015 and 2017.
Solo travel doesnt mean travelling alone, and it shouldnt be a barrier to those wanting to explore the world. Its a great way to branch out and meet like-minded people from all cultures and walks of life.
The increasing number of solo travellers could be due to a combination of better technology, with apps allowing us to easily discover our next location, that fact that more of us are staying single for longer and arent worried about waiting for a suitable travelling companion to come along, or the fact that flexi working can make it possible to combine a job with travel, operating remotely.
Our very own agents Linda and Karen traveled to Cuba and cruised on the Viking Sun Ocean Cruise in 2017. Read about it here.

Apparently Cuba is the number one destinationwith solo bookings rising from 371% between 2016 and 2017. With salsa dancing and live music on almost every street corner, Havana is a magical and seductive city. While many people arrive alone, they inevitably return home with multiple friends.
