Is it dangerous to walk on the beach at night, if they are not private?
What about Cozumel..we are looking to be able to walk along the beach and find cool nightlife. Is this a bad idea?

Basically I would have to say that you should never walk alone on the beach at night, no more than you should walk alone on any dark street in a city. Between Blue Parrot and Capitan Tutix in Playa (two popular nighttime hangouts) there's some beach traffic at night, but stay in a group.

Cozumel is extremely safe. It's an island so it's tough for perps to get away. There's a LOT of petty thievery but no harm to people. You could walk on the beaches at the southern beach clubs as they stay open late--especially for full moon parties. East side of the island isn't a good idea at night because the army is sometimes cruising for drug smugglers and people disturbing the turtle nesting areas, etc.
With Coz, you'd want to check out the coastline during the day before making a long moonlight stroll. Some beaches here are long and sandy like in Playa--although few nearly as long as on the coast--but many are rocky ironshore. Perfect for snorkeling but a leetle hard on your tootsies.

It's always difficult to advice on safety. I don't want to scare anyone, because Playa is not a very criminal place, but bad things could happen here as well as anywhere else. I walk on the beach sometimes at night (but always with others) and I feel safe in this town. But I live here, I know where I'm going and I speak the language. Just be street smart, don't act like you're lost etc. And keep your distance to people. You don't have to be polite to someone approaching you at night. And of course - as always - different rules for guys and girls, but if you're a girl you already know that, hopefully.
