Is solo female travel in Mexico safe?

  1. I can totally relate to this experience. I visited last year (just outside of Mexico City) and felt completely safe. Most of the time I was with my BF who is Mexican, but most places I felt like I could have gone to alone and would have been fine. As long as you have common sense, stay alert, do what the locals tell you, everything will be fine, Mexico is as safe as you want it to be.

  2. Great article, Janine. Me and my 19 year old daughter have just returned from Mexico City and Oaxaca City (2 females) and didn’t feel unsafe at anytime. Of course, I had read extensively about safety and which areas to avoid. I think the key is to be aware and be vigilant, but I would do that for any new place I am travelling to!

  3. Love this! Honestly I am blonde, solo, can barely speak Spanish and don’t dress especially conservatively and I have never felt remotely unsafe in six months living in Mexico!
