One destination I'd highly recommend for solo travel is Manuel Antonio in Costa Rica. It's a stunningly beautiful place with plenty to see and do, from hiking through the rainforest to relaxing on the beach.

Also companies like Explore and Exodus operate small group tours that you can join as a solo traveller.

Do you have any other recommendations? Costa Rica seems far for me.

Regrettably I have deep suspicions that Javier is not here to talk about living with dyspraxia. I suspect he just wants to post links to commercial sites some of which may be operated by scammers.

The topic about finding cheap flights is always a hot one, especially for those of us who love to travel but don't want to break the bank. From organizing your stuff to dealing with unexpected changes in plans, there's a lot to consider. Plus, sharing tips and experiences can be super helpful for everyone.

Please put that solo traveller on pre moderation - it looks a scam to me.

Poster (Greatorco) has been preemptively banned

Some will ask a question then edit their post to slip in a commercial and or dodgy link.

If they do that at the very least one warning but probably a permanent ban is the right course

Personally, I'm all about scoring those sweet deals and flying [URL removed by Admin and poster reported and banned] without burning a hole in my wallet. It's like getting the VIP treatment without the crazy price tag, you know? Anyway, thanks for sharing this gem! Gonna bookmark it for my next adventure.

Solo travel can seem daunting at first, but it can be super rewarding. I've been doing it for a while now, and I love the freedom it gives me. One thing I recommend is starting small – maybe try a solo trip within the UK first to build up your confidence.

I love staying at places like hotels surfers paradise. They're great for meeting new people, so you never really feel alone. As for the planning part, use apps like Google Maps and TripIt to help organize everything. And don't worry too much about unfamiliar places – just take it one step at a time and have some key phrases ready if you go abroad. Good luck and happy travels.

From my own time traveling alone in Argentina, I learned that beginning with shorter trips not far from home helped me feel more confident. Planning carefully was very important—looking up places to visit, using translation apps, and picking times when there were fewer people around to travel. Keeping in touch with family and friends back home made me feel secure. For myself, I chose to travel with a guide when visiting new places. I had positive experience using https://gowithguide.com/argentina for this purpose. Even with difficulties, traveling alone can be very enjoyable if you prepare well and have support. :)
