Practical information and tips on countries around the world

Tips for traveling in the world’s most dangerous countries for tourists

As soon as I was about to go to Colombia, my friends vied with each other to warn me, “Be careful, it’s a dangerous country!”

Is it much more dangerous than other countries I have traveled and lived in?

Our perception of how dangerous a place is depends on many factors – an overzealous media interested only in heartwarming stories and attracting public attention, corrupt political and economic institutions, rumors that are bred out of thin air. All this is a dubious source of information about the country for the traveler who intends to go there.

But prudence has never stopped anyone, so I’m writing 10 tips for travelers going to “the most dangerous countries in the world for tourists. And at the bottom of the article I will provide a list of these most dangerous countries.

Before you travel to a dangerous country

Separate real facts from fears

Take a quick inventory of what you’ve heard about the country you’re going to visit? What do you know for sure? How do you know it? How accurate and trustworthy is your source of information? Are there any facts and figures proving the high level of danger and risk?

For example, Puerto Rico is considered quite a dangerous place to travel, it ranks a respectable 5th on the list of most violent countries because of the high number of deaths due to gunshot wounds. I lived there for 2.5 years and I can tell you that most of the murders are due to conflicts between people I know, innocent foreigners are only wounded…really, very often. The whole point is that the Puerto Rico police have an annual campaign against unintentional injuries that occur when people shoot in the air, thus welcoming the new year. This is the type of danger you need to be aware of and just avoid these situations.

Read tips and reviews about traveling in dangerous countries

Just visit the websites for the dangerous country you are about to go to and read the travel warnings. Then learn more about the country, its history and real events not covered in the news. Read blogs, travel forums, local magazines and newspapers, and books written in that country. More often than not, locals have much more adequate information about the state of affairs than foreigners. Before my trip to Colombia, I read a lot of blogs covering everything from current music preferences to political movements of young people.

On my way.

Take a closer look at the local population

As they say, you don’t walk in a strange monastery, and if the locals don’t wear expensive jewelry, you shouldn’t either.

Keep the people closest to you informed of your plans.

This may sound a bit fatalistic, but letting trustworthy people know your plans and whereabouts will help find you if something terrible should happen. For example, when I travel alone, I email my husband similar messages: “Hi, I’m going to take the subway downtown for a walk, then I’ll watch a bullfight at Plaza Mexico at 4pm, I’ll be back at the hostel around 8pm, I’ll call you.”

Always carry a card with your contact information

Your passport or driver’s license is not informative enough if something happens to you. I advise you to get a special card with the following information: full name, year of birth, blood group, allergies and chronic diseases, contact number of your loved one with the country code. And a couple of tips: make the card in English and in the language of the country you are going to, update the data as needed. I can’t overemphasize the importance of this advice. A friend of mine had an accident in Mexico City, this card helped him a lot to get timely medical care.

Use only official cab services

I ignore this advice myself from time to time, because cabs need to be called in advance and expected. Still, this option is much safer than just catching a “bambila” on the road, just in case.

Be reasonable.

But this advice I always follow. Even if you have a high tolerance for alcohol – do not ignore this advice. All over the world, people in a drunken state are at particular risk. After all, your ability to think straight and make adequate decisions is markedly diminished. Take care of yourself and be careful with alcohol. Especially this advice concerns women. Any place will be the most dangerous country in the world for women if you are drunk.

Migration dangerous countries

After the trip.

Talk about your vacation in a dangerous country.

Here you are back from a dangerous country for vacation, alive and well, head and feet in place – talk about it. And when asked, “Was it dangerous?” – answer sincerely, based on your own experience. Perhaps because of various prejudices people refuse to travel to many beautiful countries, dispel these stereotypes, give them a chance.
