5 Worst Vacation Spots You Thought Were A Good Idea

30 Mar 2010, written by Revelation 9 Comments

Everyone loves a good vacation, and when booking a trip you always are showered with good reviews and websites explaining why their destination is the best bet. A lot of times you fall for those wonderful reviews and don’t look into it at all, because if it’s on the internet it must be fact of course. If you don’t want to get murdered, eaten by sharks, or catch a STD try to avoid these 5 commonly traveled destinations.

Bangkok, Thailand
Speaking of diseases, “just say no” if your buddy starts talking up spring break at this sex tourism capital. The HIV-infection rate for working women could be as high as 10 percent in certain parts of the city. And the strain of HIV most prevalent in Thailand is actually easier for heterosexual men to catch than the strains we have in the West. Scary stuff, indeed. And that’s assuming the woman whose company you enjoy is actually a woman.

Daytona Beach, Fla.
For many visitors, the worst aftermath of a spring break here in Florida will be a treatable STD. For others, a shark attack could be in order. The coastal region of Volusia, which contains Daytona Beach, has the highest number of reported attacks. (Then again, none of them were fatal. And who needs all their limbs?)

Jamaica
If you believe the commercials, Jamaica is a place where everyone spends the day swimming, drinking Red Stripe and smiling a lot. The reason Jamaica has to advertise so heavily in the first place is that the economically depressed island is one dangerous place. We’ve read about local drug dealers who’ll sell you their nation’s finest crop, and then get paid a second time — by reporting you to the cops. Negril seems especially dicey.

Australia
The land down under may have clean water and happy residents, but it is also home to some of the deadliest animals in the world. When you visit Australia, you may find yourself facing one of the ten most poisonous snakes in the world, one of many different types of deadly spiders or even deadly sea creatures. In fact, most consider Australia to be the place where you are most likely to get attacked by wildlife in one way or another.

Anywhere and everywhere in Latin America
Where: Colombia
Why: Rebel paramilitary groups are known to kidnap tourists to nab handsome ransoms, or just coldly kill people who cross their paths. National parks are misleading tourist draws — they’re operational bases for left-wing guerrillas. Colombia appears in all four major risk categories: crime, kidnapping, political violence and insurgencies.

Where: Brazil
Why: The gap between rich and poor here is so wide, Brazil’s underbelly has no choice but to commit crimes to make ends meet. The most dangerous urban areas are hillside slums (favelas), full of drug gang shootouts.

Where: Mexico
Why: In Mexico City, more than 15,000 people are murdered each year. The country’s cops are so corrupt they’re routinely involved in extortion and kidnapping rings.

Where: Dominican Republic
Why: While petty crime is common throughout the island, reports of violent crime against foreigners is growing. Taxis and buses allow thieves to rob tourists in enclosed, controlled spaces.

Where: Venezuela
Why: With a murder rate ranked third in Latin America, violence is linked to drug trafficking, since Venezuela acts as a middleman between Colombia and the U.S.

sorry you guys felt that the last destination was racist. The point of the article was to spot out popular vacation destinations and explore very serious problems in each spot. I think the high level of murders, kidnappings, and crime in those regions should be an issue for tourists. As for saying Mexico was in south america, I don’t see where I ever wrote that. I understand Mexico is a part of North America but since it was conquered by Spain it is still considered to be a part of Latin America as well, which I stated. If any other place had a murder rate even close to the places I stated, that people actually go on vacation, then I would have included it, but I can’t think of any of the top of my head, sorry.

You really have to be a complete idiot to believe that a certain strain of virus is more infectious to certain cells, depending on the sexual orientation of the cells.

This article was extremely awesome, thanks for the heads up. I’m not going to step foot in any of these garbage holes hahaha. No but for real I get the point the article makes obviously they are still great places to visit, they just have a higher risk of certain things opposed to other vacation spots, I dont know why everyone is taking it so literal, chill out losers.

Latin America???? What an irresponsible comment. Just because people get murdered in New York and Washington DC all the time you just don’t say the United States is not safe. OR just because there are sharks attacks at Daytona Beach all Florida is a feeding frenzy for sharks. State the facts and keep yourself out of trouble. When you generalize, as you did by listing “Latin America” you Offend rather than inform.

“Stupid is as Stupid does”… right Forest Gump.
