Safety Tips for Solo Women Travelers

  • Always trust your instincts. If something feels off, take heed.
  • Don’t be too trusting. Just because a stranger seems likable doesn’t mean that he or she has good intentions.
  • Know what you’re drinking and when you’ve had enough. Alcohol lowers one’s inhibitions and can put you in a vulnerable position. Stick to one drink, and always monitor it.
  • Blend in as much as you can. Don’t dress or carry yourself in a way that screams ‘tourist’.
  • Hide cash in ingenious places, such as an empty, unused tampon applicator. No potential thief will think of looking there.
  • Be aware of your surroundings. That means not being constantly on your phone or listening to music with earbuds in while you’re out and about.
  • Carry a personal safety alarm.
  • Make sure that you have travel insurance.
  • Give a family member or close friend a copy of your itinerary and passport. Also, take photos of important documents, such as IDs, tickets, etc. and save them in Google Drive or Dropbox.
  • Make a local friend. It’s super helpful to know someone from the area. If you find yourself in a sticky situation, they might be able to help you out.
  • Carry only the cash you’ll need for each day while you’re out. If you need to withdraw cash, you can do so at any ATM or bank in Cabarete, as long as you have your passport with you.
