Any tips or advice for solo female traveller?

I am going to be in San Jose Costa Rica, Panama City and then Cacnun (hopefully joining up with some friends there).

Other than the obvious don;t go down dark alley ways, flashing cash, keeping passports safe has anyone got any safety tips for me as a solo female traveller?

Also is there anything that is a must see in these cities?

Any help would be much appreciated! But, I have booked it so don't tell me I'm going to die thanks :) too late now.

2 months travelling in Panama, 3 in Costa Rica - no issues for me but beach-thefts (sometimes aggressive) occur relatively frequently. My advice is to stay in places with safes or strongboxes (bring your own lock), carry only the cash you need and don't take electronics to the beach. Otherwise, the locals are friendly and 99% honest - you're going to have a lovely trip. Don't miss the Carib coast of Costa Rica!
