If you’re traveling alone in Spain, you’ll probably want to learn some Spanish and make sure it’s safe to travel alone there. You might also find yourself wondering where exactly you should stay and what kinds of things to do while you’re there. These are just a few tips for anyone who wants to get the most out of their trip!

#1: Learn Some Spanish!

If you can’t speak the language, it’s hard to have a conversation with anyone. And if you don’t know anything about the culture, it’s even harder to make friends. If you want to be able to communicate and make friends while traveling in Spain, then I highly recommend learning some basic Spanish phrases before arriving. A phrasebook is a great tool for this purpose; there are many available online or at your local bookstore (and they’re usually much cheaper than booking an expensive class).

It may also help if you learn some Spanish slang before coming here: for example, what do Spaniards call each other? In other words: “¿Cuáles son los apodos españoles?”

#2: Don’t Be Too Concerned About Safety.

Traveling alone in Spain

In recent years, Spain has become one of the most popular destinations for foreign tourists. With its mild climate, beautiful scenery and welcoming people, it’s easy to see why so many people want to visit this country. However, with tourism booming in Spain it is important to ensure that you are traveling safely and avoiding any potential dangers whilst you are on your trip.

The good news is that Spain is one of the safest countries in Europe! In fact, it has one of the lowest crime rates in Europe – according to Eurostat statistics released in 2015. According to these figures:

  • There were 5 crimes per 1000 inhabitants reported by police in 2014 (EU average was 28). This means that there are only 6% more than half as many violent crimes in Spain compared with other European countries;
  • The homicide rate was 0.43 deaths per 100 000 inhabitants from 2012-2014 (EU average was 1);

#3: Unless You’re Really On A Budget, Book Your Accommodation Before You Go.

If you don’t have the money to travel, you should definitely consider traveling alone in Spain. But if you do have some budget allocated for your trip and want to make the most of it, booking accommodation in advance can help you save some serious cash.

Booking accommodation in advance will allow you to find the best deals on hostels and hotels that meet your needs. This means that even if they’re not always as cheap as they would be if booked at the last minute (and let’s be honest: they probably won’t be), they’ll still be cheaper than what would normally cost if booked right before leaving home!

#4: Get Off The Beaten Path — But Don’t Do Anything Stupid.

The most important thing to note here is that you shouldn’t do anything that you feel uncomfortable with. This includes doing things that aren’t legal or that might put you in harm’s way (e.g., don’t smoke weed in public). It also means not doing anything that would make someone think less of you—it’s fine if your friends want to stay back and drink at the hostel while everyone else goes out, but they shouldn’t pressure you into going out with them if it doesn’t seem like a good idea.

#5: Eat What The Locals Eat. Have Fun!

Traveling alone in Spain

Eat what the locals eat. It’s always fun to try some local cuisine and wine, but it can also be a great way to get an idea of what life is like for people in your destination country. You might find that you don’t like something that’s popular at home, or discover something new and delicious!

Spain is a beautiful country and a great place to visit alone

  • Spain is a beautiful country and a great place to visit alone if you want to make new friends, learn about different cultures, and experience a real European vacation.
  • If traveling alone isn’t your thing, don’t worry! There are plenty of other ways to explore Spain without having to go it alone: try booking a package deal with friends or family (you’ll save money on flights) or consider joining an organized tour group through your local travel agency.
  • Spain has some of the most spectacular architecture in Europe—from Moorish palaces like Granada’s Alhambra to Gothic cathedrals such as Toledo’s cathedral—and there’s no better way than by renting out an apartment for yourself or even just booking yourself into one of their many hotels!


So, if you’re thinking about traveling to Spain alone, don’t hesitate! The country is beautiful and fascinating, and it will give you plenty of opportunities to make new friends. Just be careful not to over-plan your trip—and remember: when in doubt, ask the locals!
