Do it. Life is too short to wait around for people to travel with and the world is a big place. I went to a Club Med in Mexico alone in my 20's and over 20 years and many trips later, I consider it to be one of the best trips of my life. I met other single women at the gate at the airport that we going to the same Club Med. One of them was my room mate (double occupancy is encouraged). I made a friend with another girl from a different city and within the year, we visited each other. Since that trip, we've both gotten married years ago but we still email. Some of the guests at the resort were there to "get lucky" but most were fun spirited people. We went on excursions and hung out at the beach all day and met up for dinner and drinks at night. It was awesome and I encourage you to try something like it.

If you are an ultra-outgoing, gregarious person, sure. If not, then no. Don't get me wrong. Travelling solo has its advantages. But going to a resort without a copilot makes me shudder. Pick a cool city somewhere and go exploring.

Travelling alone sure wouldn't be for me and I'm very sociable and outgoing. Being divorced, I wait until friends or a relative can go with me....I like to talk to others during meals and share what I'm seeing and experiencing with others. That's just me...a "people person". If you're normally a loner, then I guess travelling alone would be fine and fun.

I would go alone to a resort if it were in a city I knew well. Say Puerto Vallarta, I'd have no problems hopping a plane and landing in Paradise Village!

I've been deep sea fishing down in Los Cabos and The Keys, toured the Mayan ruins around Cancun, and been skiing in the Alps on my own. It's kind of like seeing the Grand Canyon, the view is the same whether you're by yourself or on a bus with fifty people. Enjoy the solitude.
I agree, go for it! Myself, I prefer vacationing by myself. No one to have to wait for, or one might want to go see one attraction while you would rather see another, you can get up or go to sleep as early or late as you want without bugging someone else (or being bugged, arrrgh!).
