I like sharing life and travel experiences. Dancing is the best, so I can go dancing or also talk and enjoy the view. I love the idea of women helping other women during traveling so I hope we can share some time or other experiences.

Solo travel experience

I don't speak Spanish and didn't do much research prior to going but absolutely adored Mexico. It was super safe everywhere from the Yucatan all the way up to Mexico City and slightly north. Everyone was so lovely, helpful, easygoing, and the food was delicious. The Yucatan was a bit too colonial and Americans everywhere, still enjoyed it. I really loved CDMX and Oaxaca, as well as the Queretaro wine region. I travelled about half the country maybe more and felt so safe and welcome everywhere.

Solo travel experience

I had an amazing time in Mexico. I was careful but I felt really safe. I was nervous with the stories I heard but nothing bad happened at all. I went to Cancun, Oaxaca, San Cristobal, and Mexico City. The main tip I can give is to avoid tap water at all costs.

Solo travel experience

I solo traveled to Mexico in March and I can 100% say that I felt completely safe. Hostels are very safe and locals are very friendly. I did Tulum, Bacalar, Playa Del Carmen, and Holbox and I didnโ€™t feel on edge at all.
