Is Belize Safe For Women Traveling Alone?

Women often travel alone in Belize, though it is recommended to stay away from Belize City. The cayes are considered safe for lone female travelers, provided they follow our safety precautions, stay alert, and refrain from becoming inebriated. Walking alone through cities or on the beach after dark is highly cautioned against.

Hustlers or con artists may target female travelers. Some men in Belize are prone to catcalling, and some women find it helps to say a quick, formal “good day” or “good morning” without making too much eye contact as they pass.
