Hi everyone!

I have been traveling to Belize once or twice a year for the past 15 years - most recent trip was for 11 days just a few weeks ago. I usually stay in smaller resorts within walking distance to town and love The Reef, Waragumas and the secret deli to name a few.

I have always traveled with family, most often my mom. I am thinking about coming back late April but would be traveling on my own. I'm not a partier and would not be out at night, most time would be spent just lounging. Any thoughts from people on safety (female, 26) and whether traveling alone is an ok idea?

Thank you!

Use normal precautions; don't flash money; no drugs; stay reasonably sober; don't walk alone after dark (take a cab if out later, they are cheap); I would advise to stay away from the clubs; and be very careful of "new found friends".

The same precautions you would use anywhere in the States. I've met several girls who visit or live down here alone and they have no troubles that I've heard of. I've only heard of one case that ended badly for a single girl. That was 5 or 6 years ago I believe and she was last observed with some guy she met and went off alone with, if I remember the story correctly. Something that could happen anywhere I suppose.

I'm a solo traveler and love it. You meet more people when you are not already with someone. Everything Ragman says is true. I survived New York City coming out of the theatre late on night. I made the mistake of stopping for dinner at the place next door. When I finished all the foot traffic was gone and no buses in sight. I kept my head, walked with confidence through one of the worst parts of the city. It has been proven that victims often behave like victims.
