Mexico is generally safe at night, however it is important to take precautions. It is best to avoid walking alone at night, especially in unfamiliar areas. It is also important to be aware of your surroundings and to avoid carrying large amounts of cash or wearing expensive jewelry. It is also recommended to take taxis or other forms of transportation when traveling at night.

I was two weeks in Mexico in May. Visited Playa Del Carmen, Cancun, Tulum, Bacalar, Mahahual, and Cozumel. I had a blast and definitely recommend it. I mainly stayed in resorts and boutique hotels and wasn’t out at night (unless I was partying). Overall everything was amazing. Bacalar & Cozumel, are tourist hot spots that are “small” so I was out at night and it was full of people. Cancun I didn’t even bother going at night it’s too big and didn’t feel as safe for me. I was out partying only in small towns or in Playa de Carmen where it’s super full of tourists 24/7 and it’s only 2 streets of clubs. I speak Spanish so that’s also another plus.Posted: August 12, 2023
I spent three months traveling solo throughout Mexico, visited many places across the country including the Yucatan (Cancun, Tulum, etc), Oaxaca, and Mexico City and I didn’t have a single issue the whole time and generally felt quite safe. It’s a beautiful country with so much to offer. Safety-wise I didn't walk alone at night and took Ubers rather than local taxis. I always kept spare cash/cards and a spare phone at my hostel just in case. Loved Mexico.Posted: August 10, 2023
Been to Mexico twice as a solo traveler and it’s absolutely safe to travel. I went for walks at night on my own and never got bothered and nothing unexpected happened.Posted: August 8, 2023
