What's the best Latin American country for solo travel? I speak Spanish, although I'm a bit rusty, and the last time I went to Mexico was over a decade ago. I really want to travel to Latin America mainly because I live in the US so flights are cheap down there and the exchange rate benefits me greatly.
The problem is I have no gf to travel with, and my one friend who wants to do some international travel just wants to go to Europe and has no desire to go to Latin America. As a result I'm thinking of booking a solo trip at some point this year.
Here's the thing, I'm looking more for a chill relaxing party time moreso than seeing tourist sites. As much as I'd like to see Macchu Picchu and some of the megalithic sites in Peru or some cool old Cathedrals and stuff, that's not my main goal.
Really I just want to be able to drink some fruity drinks, eat some delicious food that's cheap, and perhaps indulge in some cocaine or maybe even cannabis on occasion. Also would like to be able to chill out at a beach if all possible.
My concern is that I don't want to get robbed or scammed if I appear like a solo traveler. I'm also not opposed to prostitution but again, I don't wanna get scammed or drugged.
So, what are my options? I know Mexico is always there, but I really want to go to South America, been thinking either Colombia or Argentina, but both seem to have pros and cons. Does anyone here have any good recommendations? Should I just be lazy and stay at an all inclusive resort in Mexico?
