Safety for solo female travellers

I keep hearing about safety issues in Mexico in the news especially regarding Canadian travellers. Is it safe for a solo female traveller to go to an all inclusive?

For Canadian travelers there is no more risk in Mexico than in other holiday destinations (as any statistics will tell you). And Canadians aren't considered special targets by criminals either. Millions of people go to Mexico each year and 99.99% enjoy themselves safely - use common sense and you can become one of that number!

I'd feel safer in Cancun then in Toronto if that makes you feel any better.

All inclusive, condos, traveling up and down the Riveria coast to see the beaches and local towns, using taxis and public transportation

Yea Canadians and US Citizens look totally different, and are easy to pick out of a crowd therefore, they are targeted more....The bad guys do not waste their time with the travelling public, Why would they?...Your the customer...You will be fine at your All Inclusive....And please, get out and enjoy the scenery...

Hi artsekh,

I would not travel to all spots in Mexico alone, but in this area, you are all good:)

I went last May alone for 4 nights, and have been to this area many times. I feel very safe, and people are very friendly and helpful.

Have a wonderful trip:)
