I don't think going to carnival in Trinidad alone is a good idea , I've been to the Toronto caribana and to the Brooklyn west indian parade but I never been and never will go alone.

Jamaica, Barbados, Turks and caicos, Hawaii, St Vincent and the grenadines, Grenada, and Cuba are good places to travel solo.

Don't go to Trinidad for carnival alone.  I've had Trini's tell me this.

I've been to Vegas, South Beach, Tampa, Orlando, Houston and when I lived in TN I went to Atlanta alone all the time.

My mom would get so angry and against my good sense, I stopped telling her when I traveled alone.

I will be travelling solo next February to Turk and Caicos.

I lived in Chi solo and will be living in NYC solo.. I think spending a few days in a different city alone wont be much worse.

Honestly, I'm more cognizant of my surroundings when im alone because I'm not operating in a comfort zone.

HOWEVER, I wouldn't advise most people to do such a thing lol. Me, I'm a 6'1 black girl with a generally stand-offish disposition. People don't usually mess with me. 

im supposed to go to barcelona for a few days and ill basically be myself.. 
i just planned on exploring but i guess it would be smart to have some things set up. 

can you share where you stayed, what you did, how the nightclubs were, and basically any info/tips you can give

I went to Jamaica two years ago by myself planning to meet up with my deadbeat father. but a deadbeat is a deadbeat so you already know as soon as I touched down I couldn't get in contact with him even tho we had been talking about me making this trip for 7 months prior. I don't know any of his fam in Jamaica so I was assssssssssed out. I took a cab to the address he gave me and some woman said she hadn't seen his ass in a week then told me to get off her property
 
I got a cheap hotel and stayed in my room damn near the entire trip. I dunno what was happening when I went but even the hotel staff was like keep yo ass inside
 
my sperm donor dad called a week later talking bout some "Oh yuh shoulda told me when you were coming" ol bullshyt ass nicca
 
that's my only solo vacation experience

I went to South Beach alone twice, I NEVER felt scared, always pretty safe. But I will say there are local men, mainly black, who go there to seek out women alone. I had several to want to "get up with me later"..NO my man is at the hotel and I keep it moving. No chit chat, no smile, no stopping to talk to them etc. I walk the strip, I do the beach in the morning, and like someone else stated, I often drive to different areas. I like to get drinks only at the hotel I'm staying at, sit at the bar or outside and small chit chat with other females or men that don't seem threatening. I always research things I want to do before going somewhere solo..It helps when you have a plan.

I did NYC alone too. Now I was younger and met two Africans who showed me around. But then it ended with them wanting me to go back to their place..NO. I met two girls and club hop with them. But I wouldn't dare be so welcoming like that anymore lol.
