I am a 26 year old single female traveling alone to AC in late March. I am very excited aobut this vacation but feeling a bit nervous as friends and family say, "Alone? Are you crazy!" I am still convinced that the island is a relatively safe place to go and all of the friendly and helpful messages I am reading really reaffirm that. Can anyone suggest what activities (night and day) that someone in my situation might enjoy? I'd definitely like to meet new people, to eat or take day trips with-- but I do not have any expectations.
Also, I have reserved a room at Lilly's for half my stay and Hotel Del Rio for the other half- price, close proximity to town and general appearance were the factors in this decision. Did I make the right choice?
Any words of advice would be really helpful.

I am going March 12-16 and am also going single. I have heard from a lot of people that it is pretty safe. Where are you staying??? DO you scuba??? Let me know if you need a roommate. I was nervous at first travelling alone, especially since I am making a trip to Tikal, but I think it will be fine, it is the busy season so there will be a lot of people around.

I will be down solo for the 4th time on 3/22--you will love it! As long as you keep a smile on your face and remember that it is not the U.S., you will have a great time. I always meet people on scuba/snorkeling trips, and end up partying with these people later when I see them at Fido's/BC's/Coconuts/Palapa, etc. As long you use some common sense (you know, big girls out walking after dark stuff), you will be fine!
