How safe is Mexico?

You have to be very cautious of where you are going and who you're hanging out with. Tourist areas are generally safer but you should always take extra precautions, especially as a solo traveler. I would definitely recommend googling beforehand the neighborhood you'd be staying at.

Solo travel experience

Mexico was amazing. It was my first solo trip and I was in an all-inclusive resort, so I felt extremely safe and everyone was so nice. I took two excursion to Chichen Itza and Isla mujeres. I really enjoyed my experience. I can't wait to come back to Mexico to visit more.

I have been on a 2-week trip in Mexico, mostly Chiapas and Mexico City. Loved it and felt very safe as a solo female traveler, with so many nice and wonderful people.

Is Mexico worth visiting?

Overall rating

4.8 /5

based on 33 experiences

Solo travel experience

I backpacked solo through Mexico for 2 months in fall 2022. I absolutely enjoyed my trip. I stayed in hostels and made great friends. I mostly ate street food and cheap eats to keep costs low. I celebrated Dia de Muertos in Oaxaca and it couldn’t have been a better choice.

Solo travel experience

I spent 2 weeks traveling alone in Mexico. Mexico City - Campeche - Merida - Playa Del Carmen. I flew from Mexico City, then took the ADO bus between Campeche, Merida, and Playa Del Carmen and had only positive experiences. I love Mexico and can't wait to go back.
