Too often lumped in with North America, Mexico is a country that stands out on its own.

Considering a jaunt to Mexico for the NYE holiday (having to book soon obviously since a lot of accommodation is already booked up!)

Thinking of hitting up Playa, Tulum, Merida, Chichen Itza.

Anyone been recently? Have any tips? Places to go, places to avoid, safety concerns, etc?

I'm a 26 year old gal, maybe traveling alone, minimal Spanish knowledge. Would likely bus around.

Thanks!

These are fun places, although Chichen Itza gets insanely crowded with daytrippers from Cancun. Consider visiting Uxmal out of Merida for a ruins fix - the site is superior to Chichen Itza, and nowhere near as crowded. Playa has a busier nightlife and restaurant scene than Tulum. Traveling alone, you'll probably want to stay in Tulum town, rather than the beach. Buses are comfortable and take you everywhere. This is one of the safer areas in Mexico, so you should be fine with regular safety precautions.
