A colleague of mine is from the Kerala province in India, so I asked
her about your question.
She tells me that Kerala is very safe, and that it is also a very
beautiful part of India.

As long as you keep your head about you and practice safe behavior
(just as you would here in the U.S. in any big city), you should enjoy
yourself and your visit to Kerala.
