NEW YORK, NY - Ever thought you'd meet your someone special while exploring the Andean foothills on horseback with gauchos; or while learning to surf in Costa Rica; wine tasting in Chile; cooking over a fire on Francis Mallmann’s private island or learning to salsa in Havana? Plan South America, the award-winning tour operator, thinks like-minded single travelers with dating app fatigue just might.
Match’s 11th Annual Singles in America Study shared that 83% of singles want someone open-minded and accepting of differences, while 80% desire someone who has a life of their own. These two qualities ranked higher than physical attractiveness which only 78% cared about. As singles care less about looks and more about emotional connections, travel has an opportunity to bring the best out of everyone, especially when they’ve been landlocked over the pandemic.
“Single travelers have always been open-minded to new experiences and destinations, with the journey leaving them more open to the differences in people and culture. Single travelers don’t standby waiting for the invitation to experience life. They have a life of their own and seize the opportunity to travel the way they want to. Our curated experiences are aimed at bringing those like-minded travelers together, putting them in situations to experience destinations, while meeting new people,” shares Harry Hastings, founder of Plan South America.
Highly tailored small group trips are curated by Plan South America to bring together kindred spirits of a similar age and lifestyle, weaving elements of wellness, skill-building, gastronomy, and adventure. Here are just some of the experiences curated for single travelers seeking a team player, a sous chef, an adrenaline junkie, or wine lover to name a few.
