Travel Mexico Safely and Enjoy Your Trip

Mexico is a different country with different geography and culture. Most people are friendly, but like everywhere there are some bad people too. Here are a few tips for women how to stay safe in Mexico.

What Do You Wear in Mexico?

Wear clothes that are modest and be polite to avoid unwanted attention, verbally or physically in cities or making the locals upset in conservative places.

Street Smarts

Try not to use your phone in the central plaza, as in the city you want to avoid unwanted attention. Try to keep your phone and cash out of anyone’s sight. Carry one photocopy of your ID with you always, but keep the real documents locked safe somewhere, better where you are staying. Closely track your credit card.

While many criminal activities towards females in Mexico are either drug/gang relevant or is due to domestic violence, so use your common sense, and you are going to find Mexico is as safe as your home.
