Vacation Destinations For People Who Hate People

If crowds aren’t your thing and you love your alone time, then check out these perfect vacation destinations for introverts!

OK, that title is a little harsh. But I’m just talking about introverts here! I know that doesn’t mean you hate people, but it does mean you’re not crazy about big crowds and you love your alone time. So if you consider yourself an introvert and are looking for a perfectly peaceful and quiet vacation, these are the spots for you.

DAINTREE RAINFOREST, AUSTRALIA

Not all introverts love the outdoors… but many do. And if you’re one that does, then the Daintree Rainforest in Australia may be the most perfect place in the world for you. The plant and animal life is bountiful and incredible. You’ll feel like you’ve traveled into the land time forgot. But there are still plenty of paved and well-maintained pathways for quite travelers like yourself.

There are also some amazing trails off the paved paths, but you’ll have to join a group for those. It’s not the worst though, as the groups are usually small and it’s likely no one will be bothering you too much as they’ll all be mesmerized by the nature around them.

NEW YORK CITY

Hear me out! I know, I know. New York seems like the last place most introverts want to be. But many introverts do still enjoy and crave the hustle and bustle of a big city. And, once the crowds are that big, there is a certain comfort to the way you can kind of disappear in the middle of it all. And that’s the charm of New York for many introverts. Not to mention, if you want to get away from it all, you can always get lost for an entire day in the beauty of Central Park.

There’s also other great introvert-friendly options like multiple art museums, plenty of great food, and the bright lights of Broadway, which can surprisingly be very enjoyable by yourself!

SEDONA, ARIZONA

Sedona is ideal for introverts as it’s practically entirely surrounded by a desert! But it’s not your classic sand-as-far-as-the-eye-can-see kind of desert. There’s still plenty of beautifully pink mountains that provide a lovely 360 view. Sedona is also a sneaky-good spot for introverts as it’s a town that’s huge on wellness. So there are all kinds of great massage and alternative healing operations, not to mention plenty of yoga studios and juice shops.

If you’re feeling especially adventurous, there are regular hot air balloon rides available! You can only fit 3 or 4 people in those things anyway so it’s not like you’ll be surrounded by tourists. And the views are simply breathtaking.

BANFF NATIONAL PARK, CANADA

Canada is quietly one of the most beautiful countries in the world and what’s better than a national park! Banff National Park is arguably the best Canada has to offer. With gorgeous views in every direction and plenty of great vacation rentals disconnected from the modern world, this is the perfect place to get away and do some proper reflecting. It’s also a great place to go in on a house with a small group. Just stock up on all the food and drink you’ll need for the week and check out from reality!

HOLBOX ISLAND, MEXICO

Mexico, in general, can be a beautiful place to get away from it all. But, as an introvert, the classic destinations like Cancun or Tulum are not for you. Thankfully, the small fishing village of Holbox Island is perfect for you. It’s remote enough that it will never be crowded or busy, and the beaches are practically custom made for reading a good book in a hammock all day long.

And if you ever get to the point where you could use a little socializing, just head to the nearest bar and strike up a conversation. The locals are famously very friendly!

JAPAN

Japan has mastered the art of privacy and peacefulness in small spaces while surrounded by massive crowds. So it can be a perfect place for introverts. Similar to New York City, it can provide the hustle and bustle of a major city, but still allows plenty of opportunities to shut it all out and just be with yourself. And the history in Japan is truly incredible. From museums to temples to gardens that have been there for thousands of years, Japan has it all. And don’t you dare leave without checking out Mt. Fuji! You’ll thank me later.

BRECKENRIDGE, COLORADO

OK… now I know I’ve talked a lot about the most beautiful states in the country… but I really feel like Colorado has got to be in the top two. Every time I’m in Colorado I can just barely contain myself while looking in literally any direction. It’s just so, so beautiful. As for skiing in Colorado, it doesn’t really get better than Breckenridge.

It can get a little pricey though, so be sure to book your trip in advance. Believe me, it’ll be worth it!
