Young woman alone in Mecixo City

My bf is working in Mexico city in a hospital, and he would like me to come and visit him (we´re normally living in Europe). We were planning on me coming over there in august for 4 weeks, but I´m feeling really insecure about it.... he would do really long hours, and I don´t speak any spanish, and I´m also really pale, so it would be quite obvious that I´m a tourist.... He thinks I would be ok, but I´m just really worried about my safety. Could anyone more experienced please tell me if I´m over-reacting here, or if I should skip the trip? He is the only person I know there, and he has an own apartment, so we wouldn´t stay at a hotel/hostel, and probably not where other tourists are spending their time. I am really grateful for any answer!

Vancouver, Canada

Just wondering if your boyfriend spoke fluent spanish when he got the job at the hospital. I will be going in May, and I'll be stopping by the hospital personally.
