Eco-adventure in the heart of the Amazon
For eco-warriors and adventure enthusiasts, few vacations can compare to a trip to the Brazilian Amazon. Amazon Nature Tours is the only line to offer four- and six-day sailings in the Brazilian Amazon basin, exploring the least inhabited major river in the Amazon, the Rio Negro. And it’s a great solo vacation for adventurers; not only is there no single’s supplement onboard, but there are rooms designed especially for single travelers, so you’ll find lots of camaraderie with other like-minded solo guests as you sail into the rainforest. Expedition cruises are led by trained naturalists and include kayak and launch excursions into the “flooded forests,” rainforest hikes, visits to native villages, fishing for piranhas, and when you’re ready to relax, outings to the beach. Looking for a vacation closer to home? These U.S. islands won’t hurt your wallet.

Adults-only getaway to paradise
Sometimes a spot seems a little too good to be true; take Club Med Turkoise for instance; it sits on the number one beach in the world, pristine Grace Bay Beach, on a stretch of water considered to be one of the top diving and snorkeling spots in the world, and it also has one of the most gorgeous sunset views in Turks & Caicos, Sharkies Bar. What could be better? The whole resort is a singles’ paradise; an adults-only, all-inclusive, beach resort with all-day entertainment, yoga, golf, trapeze lessons, and water activities like scuba diving, snorkeling, and sailing; there’s even a waterside wine cellar where you can toast your beach vacation with a glass of champagne.

Find your happiness at Art of Living
At the Art of Living Retreat Center in Boone, North Carolina, you can watch the sunrise over endless mountaintops, rejuvenate with an Ayurvedic treatment at The Spa, or meditate through a quiet of a walk in the forest as part of its transformative all-inclusive programs. For single vacations, we love the Happiness Retreat which is supposed to boost energy, calm and clear your mind, and make you happy. The package includes comfy rooms for solo travelers, three farm-to-table vegetarian meals every day, yoga and meditation classes, lectures, guided nature walks, and even pottery classes.
