#8 Ciudad Juarez: Mexico
Ciudad Juarez was once the most violent city in the world. That one fact itself should be enough to give you the creeps! The reason or this? The rampant drug trade and the violent face-offs by warring drug cartels.
The deep corruption in the local police forces, as well as the military, has only made things worse, and that much harder to convict and punish the drug crimes. In fact, the situation is so bad that once, a single drug cartel hitman ended up killing a staggering 2,000 people in an area.
A slight ray of hope is that the city has witnessed its crime rates falling down in recent years. However, it will be a challenge for the city to truly shed its violent reputation and past in the yes of tourists.
