Solo Female Traveler - Learn SpanishHello,
I'm looking for suggestions on the best places to learn Spanish as a solo female traveler (in my late twenties). Flexible on my departure date - anywhere between July and October. I have already studied in Costa Rica so would like to try somewhere new.
Thank you for any advice you can provide!

1Sucre, Bolivia - great time of year to visit, beautiful city, friendly people, easy access to other places like Potosí and/or Tupiza, relatively "neutral"-sounding Spanish. One of South America's most pleasant cities. Look it up or see here.

I'm currently in Sucre, Bolivia, just started taking Spanish classes and will commence volunteering helping out in an English class at a school this week or next. Before I chose to come here, I had read and heard many great things about what a lovely place Sucre is and how it's a great place to learn Spanish. Now that I'm here, I'd have to agree - the city is really nice, small enough to not be too crazy and get around on foot but big enough to have a reasonable nightlife and sense of things happening.
There are many Spanish schools here and I visited a few of them before I chose Sucre Spanish School. I had already had a recommendation for this school but I also liked the vibe when I visited and thought they dealt with me professionally. There are a few other people in my hostel (Wasi Masi - very nice and cheap!) who are also studying Spanish, most of them at the same school. The school is organising the volunteering for me too and I think most the other schools offer the same service, not just for teaching English.
Hope this might be helpful to you or someone else!

9I would recommend Granada in Spain. I travelled there alone (19 y/o female) and felt very safe throughout my stay :)
There is a spanish language school situated right in the very centre called Escuela Delengua www.delengua.es which offers courses of all levels as well as daily cultural activities which allow you to get to know all of the students, the teachers and the city itself. The city is perfect for exploring as there is so much to see and so much to do, whether you´re into history, art, sports, music etc. I would definitely recommend it. Also, try and fit in a visit to other cities such as Sevilla and Córdoba during your stay!
