“Stuff your eyes with wonder, he said, live as if you’d drop dead in ten seconds. See the world. It’s more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories.”  — Ray Bradbury

The following places are some of the dangerous travel destinations that should be avoided.

Caracas, Venezuela

The capital city of Venezuela is not a place which you would prefer visiting unless you want to view the ongoing crisis between drug gangs. Crime on the streets is high and theft is common. This is not a desirable destination for a vacation and in fact, a number of other cities in Venezuela are also dealing with high crime rates.

Ciudad Juarez, Mexico

This is not a city from the old wild West but the problem Mexico faces with drug cartels is well known and Ciudad Juarez is one of the most violent cities in Mexico. The police work hand-in-hand with drug cartels and most crimes which are committed are overlooked by the authorities.

Cape Town, South Africa

The incidence of crime is high in Cape Town because of poverty and social unrest. A number of tourists are flocking to South Africa because it is naturally beautiful, is close to natural preserves and has a number of other attractions.

Cape Town is, however, a dangerous place and you may have an opportunity to have a good time during a visit to this city if you avoid some of the dangerous sections and choose to remain in your hotel during the nights.

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

High crime rates are popular in Brazil with some cities being more dangerous than Rio de Janeiro. However, Rio de Janeiro is the most popular destination and therefore tourists find it beneficial to focus on this destination. Street crimes are quite common in the city especially in the evenings despite the city presently being called safer than it was a decade ago. You would be able to enjoy the beaches and resorts of the city but you are advised to take the common precautions that can safeguard you.

Guatemala City, Guatemala

 despite being a Central American nation by the Caribbean which has many tourist attractions faces a problem of drug violence.

The homicide rates of the city are high along with other street crimes such as robberies, bus holdups, and carjackings. You are advised to remain in the safer areas of Guatemala and avoid visiting Guatemala City.

Acapulco, Mexico

It is rather sad that Acapulco which was considered as a safe and luxurious resort area is presently going through a difficult phase. The popularity of the city hasn’t diminished but drug violence and the highest homicide rates in the world have made the city a dangerous destination. If you have this city in your plans you are advised to remain on the property where you are staying because crime rates are highest in the surrounding areas.

Karachi, Pakistan

Political unrest, crime, and terrorism are common to Pakistan just as having lunch or dinner are to the average individual. This city is plagued by assassinations, suicide bombings, and gang warfare. The availability of drugs at dirt cheap prices has only increased the problems this city is encountering. Karachi has all of this and more and tourists are advised to stay away from the city.

“The tragedy in the lives of most of us is that we go through life walking down a high-walled lane with people of our own kind, the same economic situation, the same national background and education and religious outlook. And beyond those walls, all humanity lies, unknown and unseen, and untouched by our restricted and impoverished lives.”  — Florence Luscomb

These are some dangerous travel destinations that should be avoided if you intend to have a good time on your vacation.
