7. Laventille, Trinidad & Tobago
Murder rates have risen significantly along the years in the tiny islands of Trinidad & Tobago with most of the infractions incurring outside of the capital city of Port of Spain in Laventille.
The majority of crimes are linked to illegal drug trades and gang-related issues. Murder also appears to be on the rise, with the latter being closely linked to gang violence. Though Tobago appears to be much safer than Trinidad, there is an increased risk of theft and armed assaults on both islands during holiday periods such as Christmas and Carnival.
