Visiting The Most Dangerous City In the World

If you ask around, there probably aren’t a lot of travelers who would jump at the chance to visit Caracas, Venezuela. For one, the destination has risen to the No. 1 spot on the world’s most dangerous cities list with 119.87 murders per 100,000 people. According to the DailyMail, there were “just under 1 million arrivals [in 2014], four times fewer than neighboring Colombia which is successfully marketing itself, despite decades of drug wars and a Marxist insurgency.” Even its neighboring countries, which are also not super safe, are getting more visitors.

Second, its current USD exchange rate is incredibly low. The country’s biggest currency note is 100 bolivars which is equal to around 0.16 US cents. That means, if you’re exchanging money, you better have a group of security guards around because your pockets will be filled with hundreds of bills.
