I decided to travel solo to ambergris Caye because it seems like an adventurous spot . However,how safe is the area? And are there a lot of tourists?

Ambergis has a lot of tourist and a lot of Americans who have relocated and made Belize there home. As with anywhere, I would exercise the general common sense when it comes to safety but other than that I would not deem the island as unsafe at all.

I've traveled to Ambergris solo several times. Had a wonderful time. Easy to meet people and hang out. Just use common sense.

Jean is right very easy to meet people and use common sense.

One of the good things about Ambergris Caye is it is very easy to get your socializing and fun time done in daylight hours and be back at your hotel at a reasonable hour.

Yes, lots and lots of tourists. We felt very safe there. I wouldn't stay out really late at night by yourself or wear flashy jewelry, same common sense like you would use anywhere. People are very friendly.
