#15 – Guatemala
And once again we feature a whole country instead of a dangerous lake, river, city, or anything else like that. And we have several reasons for featuring this Central American country on our top list of most dangerous places on Earth.
The whole country of Guatemala is plagued with the extremely high crime rate. Murders, kidnappings, raping incidents, and many other hideous crimes happen on a daily basis in this country. People who travel to Guatemala travel there at their own risk. Guatemala is also dangerous because numerous natural disasters such as earthquakes, hurricanes, and other scourges happen there frequently.
