10 Most DANGEROUS cities on the planet
It is a fact: crime as such is nothing new or novel (although it is because it is spoken of even in the oldest and most diverse sources of all) and virtually everywhere in the world, there are places where it is best not to live. However, sometimes a whole city can be considered as a dangerous area... Discover which are the places with the highest index of insecurity: just in case, it is worth knowing them all...
Is your city on the list?
10/9. Ciudad Guayana / Valencia (Venezuela)
Although at first glance, Ciudad Guayana seems to be a typical American city (and, until relatively recently, it was), in the second half of the twentieth century more and more murders, assaults and drug trafficking cases began to occur. The situation in this part of Venezuela is twice as bad as even in the notorious Detroit. What happens in Valencia is, even more, scarier: nobody knows anything about the statistics related to the murders since the government has not published them for 6 years... The truth is that there are 4 times more murders than 20 years ago.

8. Cali (Columbia)
Although this beautiful Colombian city could attract thousands and thousands of tourists from all over the world, people prefer not to travel there knowing that they may never return. All the bad things are related to the fights between cartels for the control of the drug market. Although a few years ago a mayor managed to lower the crime rate, in 2015 a war broke out between the cartels and everything returned to pseudo-normality.
7. Cape Town (South Africa)
Assassinations, assaults, armed robberies, vehicle thefts, fights, etc... All this is daily bread in the City of Cape Town. There, criminals opt to break into other people's houses (and the owners of such houses usually try to defend themselves as much as they can). Although most of these cases take place in the so-called red areas and disreputable neighbourhoods (which tourists do not want to enter), it is quite risky even to take a night stroll through the city.

6. Palmira (Colombia)
Although many of our readers may be annoyed, we still are not leaving Colombia... In Palmira also narcos and criminals are apparently ruled by their own laws. For every 1,00,000 inhabitants, 70 people die there in a tragic way: by walking the streets of this beautiful city, one can be injured "by accident". Robberies and abductions also happen very often...
5. Central District (Honduras)
Lately, from time to time in the media, the news about sudden deaths of beauty queens is normal is Honduras. In 2014, Miss Honduras and her sister were found dead in this city in Honduras. The members of the cartels do not care about their victims and are able to shoot anyone without any warning. Another danger is the pirates, so tourists are advised not to go cruising and show their yachts there…

4. Acapulco (Mexico)
A few decades ago the only relatively bad thing that could happen to you in Acapulco was getting drunk until you lost consciousness and having to endure the hangover resting on a beach. Unfortunately, nowadays everything has changed: the city now has a very bad reputation and is considered to be the most dangerous place in Mexico. Although it has nothing to do with the typical shootings of posters, every day an average of 12 people lose their lives in the streets of this place.
3. San Salvador (El Salvador)
Inhabited by almost two million inhabitants, in this city, each year 1918 people are killed. It is noteworthy that a few decades ago, during the civil war many people fled to New York where they created groups such as MS13. All criminals are eager to set up a lucrative business related to drug trafficking, although gangs end up with anyone who gets in between them and their income. In addition, the Salvadoran police are corrupted and the inhabitants themselves have to find a good way to defend themselves...

2. San Pedro Sula (Honduras)
Putting the name of this city in the search section always carries unpleasant surprises (and headlines). How are 885 murders possible in a city whose population is less than a million? The answer is simple: weapons. Everyone is armed and the police (which, according to some, practically does not exist as an institution) does nothing to change that state. Sometimes even people who do not have connections to criminals have to shoot so they do not get shot.
1. Caracas (Venezuela)
Only last year in Venezuela twenty thousand people were murdered, of whom four thousand died in the capital of the country. Worst of all is that no one really knows why this index is so high, although many point to the government and the crisis. The number of homicides increased considerably when Hugo Chávez was in command and continues to grow now, with Maduro. It is estimated that only 8% of the detainees are convicted, while others are released.
