Female solo travel in Central America
Solo female travel has always been slightly taboo.
And Latin America has always stuck out to me as one of those place you just don’t go alone as a woman. I remember being 18 and I was thinking about travelling to Latin America so I asked a friend who had recently come back from South America. He said to me, explicitly, Latin America is not a place for a woman alone. That well and truly threw a big old bucket of water over the fire that was a dream trip to Peru for a while.
Fast forward a couple of years and there I was living in Nicaragua alone working with a charity after well and truly saying fuck it, I’m not going to wait for someone to do this with me, I’m doing it, even if it means I’m going at it alone!
