6. Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic
The Dominican Republic has been in the news a lot recently with reports of tourists mysteriously wounding up dead during their resort stay on the island. As these strange occurrences continue to accumulate, several travel warnings have been issued with regard to the increasing crime rates.
The profile underlying the vibrant city of Santo Domingo reflects low safety and high chances of assault, vandalism, theft and more. Reports of police corruption and bribery have also made it harder to control criminal activity. Though the latter does not usually affect the resorts, it is best to be cautious when traveling to the city. Flashy jewelry and high-risk behaviors are not recommended.
