5. San Pedro Sula, Honduras
In recent years, Honduras has experienced incredibly high levels of both violence and criminality. The city of San Pedro Sula is considered to be rampant with drug-trafficking, gang affiliation and violence. Indeed, the city is considered to be ground-zero for violent homicides in Honduras and is soon looking to become one of the murder capitals of the world.
Reports indicate an outstanding record of 20 homicides occurring daily. Young people happen to be the target of murder and assault due to the prominence of urban gangs like Mara Salvatrucha and Barrio 18. Traveling to Honduras is thus to be strongly reconsidered.
