As a travel blogger that lives in Playa del Carmen, here are my top Riviera Maya safety tips!
Planning a Trip to Riviera Maya Mexico?
Be sure to keep any valuables, including your passport, credit cards, jewelry, and electronics locked in your hotel safe.
When out and about in crowded touristy areas, wear a crossbody purse or belt bag with zipper closures.
Only carry the amount of money you’ll need for the day’s activities as flashing large amounts of cash around can make you a target.
Avoid the drug scene in Mexico and you will avoid trouble. If you are offered drugs while walking in the main tourist areas, simply ignore it and keep walking.
Use the buddy system if you can and avoid staying out late alone, even if it’s just at the hotel bar.
Be careful with your alcohol consumption and make sure you are with people you trust and drinking in a safe environment.
Avoid wearing expensive clothing, flashy jewelry, and accessories which can make you stand out as a target for theft, exploitation, and getting overcharged.
