According to Escape Here, crimes like theft and mugging are pretty common which makes the city unsafe for walking tourists. The city is also number one in murder cases which are mostly caused by notorious gangs.

San Pedro Sula, Honduras

Just like Caracas, the city of San Pedro Sula also experiences the same conditions. According to World Atlas, the place is full of notorious gangs and drug dealers which make the city unsafe for wandering tourists. Poverty is also one reason that causes crimes like theft.

Ciudad Juarez, Mexico
