Travelling has become one of the most exciting activities in people’s life. We save money in hope of seeing a new country. All countries are interesting and each of them is unique and individual in its own way.
Before leaving your homeland, spend some time and find out more about the place you intend to visit. Keep in mind that there are quite a few destinations that should be avoided due to some certain dangers and risks. An organization responsible for public safety and criminal justice has recently published a list of the 10 most dangerous cities in the world and the list below mentioned 6 of such cities. The report also informs about the reasons why these cities are considered to be the most hazardous. The list does not include Middle Eastern cities.
1. Maceio, Brazil
Even 14 most cruel cities in the world are located in Brazil. Rio di Janeiro is incredibly dangerous. However, there is Maceio, the capital of Alagoas. This is the city to be avoided by all means. Out of 100 thousand 135 residents get killed and the rate of crimes is only increasing. The Amazon rainforest with its poisonous snakes and spiders is far safer than most of the Brazilian cities where you risk your life every second.
2. Acapulco, Mexico
Acapulco used to be visited by tourists. Nowadays travel agencies do not recommend people to go there. In spite of the fact that the city is known for its fantastic beaches, there is a problem that makes travelling there too risky. Drug dealers and issues related to this illegal business such as murders turned the place into hell.
3. Caracas, Venezuela
In Caracas you can find all kinds of crime: street fights, robberies, drug dealing and murders. The number of victims is one of the highest in the world. Citizens avoid leaving their homes and visitors are not advised to go sightseeing on their own. Statistics report that there are more than 120 homicides per 100 thousand residents which makes the capital of Venezuela too dangerous for both locals and tourists.
4. San Pedro Sula, Honduras
San Pedro Sula is located in Honduras. It is the second time the city has been included in the list of the most dangerous cities on the planet. There number of murders committed in the city is always extremely high – 3 murders daily. Put off your trip to Honduras if you do not want to be involved in one of the homicides.
5. Cali, Colombia
Drugs seem to have completely invaded Latin America, Colombia included. Violence has been raging here for ages turning cities such as Cali into hell. There is little hope to safely travel around the country in the nearest future. So put off your visit till better times. Disappointing news since otherwise there would be plenty of things to see and do apart from the crime.
6. Barquisimeto, Venezuela
The more populated city is, the more dangerous it becomes. Barquisimeto with its 1 million citizens entered the list of the most hazardous places on earth. It is surprising, since the city is famous for its universities and colleges. Yet the main problem here is murders and the situation does not seem to be improving. Refrain from visiting this place for a while and pick a different destination instead.
