Of course! If you like travelling alone, or couldn’t find anybody to come with you, then don’t worry. Our advice is to take advantage of the opportunity you have to break your routine and get to know yourself and experience new things!
Bear in mind that you’ll meet many other travellers, solo or not, during the course of your holiday.
In any case, your top priority should be to have a good time and live different experiences. Money can be recovered, time not.

A big variety, but generally open-minded, experienced travellers with a few stamps in their passports and an easy-going nature.
- The age range is generally between 25 and 45, with most our customers being 35-45. However, as age is just a number, we are having more and more under 25s and people in their 50s and 60s on our holidays. As each holiday and activity is different, the organiser can tell you more about the kind of traveller they normally cater for.
- We offer activities in Spanish and English, so most of our travellers are from Latin America and Spain, and on the latter from Europe. Travellers who book our stays come from all over the world, depending on the accommodation.
