Some resorts can be dangerous

When choosing a resort, travelers always assess its security level. Tourism in regions with high crime rates often suffers, and local authorities may not always be able to influence criminals or provide security guarantees to foreigners. In some cases, travelers are advised not to venture outside hotel complexes.

Typically, tourists face threats from fraudsters, gangs, drug traffickers, and more. The editors of the Daily Star have highlighted three well-known destinations where it's better to avoid independent walks outside the resort area, especially at night.

Acapulco, Mexico

One of the oldest and most popular seaside resorts in Mexico has become a challenging destination for inattentive tourists in recent years. Due to regular clashes between drug traffickers and the police, shootings, and a high crime rate, visitors to the city may be at risk.

Foreigners are strongly advised not to venture deep into the resort and to avoid walking in streets far from tourist areas. In Acapulco, car arsons, thefts, and assaults are unfortunately common.

Kingston, Jamaica

The main port and capital of Jamaica, washed by the Caribbean Sea, remains a popular tourist destination, but it is not considered a safe place to stay. Due to the high level of poverty in the country, attacks on wealthy foreigners for profit are common.

The primary risks for tourists include carjackings, home invasions, drug trafficking, vandalism, theft, assaults, and armed robberies. These risks can be mitigated by choosing to stay in a secure hotel during your vacation.

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

No matter how attractive a vacation in Rio may seem, travelers should not overlook warnings about scams and violent crime. According to the Numbeo service, which assesses potential risks for tourists, Rio de Janeiro has been assigned a crime rating of 90.39, which is higher than the ratings for the aforementioned resorts - Acapulco has 76.97 points, and Kingston was assigned 78.82.
