GBP-travelling with 18 yr. old daughter...?

Hey. We are leaving next week for 10 days at the Tulum section, which I gather is a more sedate portion of the resort. In terms of day/night activities, what would you reccomend for an 18 year old girl? In addition, I doubt the disco is the best place for her unless she has an (older) adult with her?

Is the disco safe for an 18 year old? Also, read that tulum sectionis mainly older people, and she may enjoy coba more during the day?

in my experience, the Tulum is actually the more "party" section. Their pool offers lots of fun activities all day long at that pool vs the akumal pool. I haven't venutred much up to the Coba pool. Encourage her to make some friends :]

Mini disco ( before the main show ) is aimed at the 3 - 8 crowd. Doubt she would enjoy it.

I wouldn't want my teen going to the Disco unless an adult was there with her. If it was a group of 2 or 3 known friends or relatives than it''probably OK , but not alone. All kinds of people come to the resort , some young , some not , some drink way too much. disco at the hacienda doesn't even open until 11 or 12

Thanks for the advice. Likely she would be with at least one parent or Aunt-Uncle, wasn't really planning on her going alone. Just wanted to know the best place (s) for her to enjoy her vacation away from us "fossils".
