I went this year in mid-April and the weather was beautiful. Highs in the mid-70s, sunny, no rain, and nights were still a little cool. I was traveling alone, I felt very safe.

I was in SCLC for several days alone in 2005 and felt very safe. A few minor cat-calls here and there (I'm female), but easily dealt with: ignore. Found people in the city to be very friendly and very accustomed to tourists being around. Never felt unsafe. I'm going back for another solo-visit in two weeks. July weather in 2005 was somewhat hot and somewhat rainy, but not extreme in either way.

SC is very safe. Much smaller than Merida and of course cooler. A big difference is that SC is a hub for many small Indian villages in the area. They come to SC for market. The Indians tend to be a more reserved people. Especially since for many, Spanish is a second language and may not be spoken too well. I've been to a village in Chiapas where only a handful spoke Spanish.

We stayed eight nights in February. It was gorgeous during the day--warm to hot, sunny. But it sure cooled off quickly as soon as the sun went down! Very cool in the evenings and overnight, we were told that one night went down to freezing point. From sundresses at 4 pm, the boots, jackets and scarves were on people by 8 pm. Still, everyone sits in the outdoor cafes having drinks.
