A beach in the Caribbean

Reconsider Visiting These Dangerous Caribbean Destinations

By Shandley McMurray


While Haiti has beautiful beaches, it is very dangerous due to gang violence. The U.S. Department of State recommends that tourists "do not travel" to Haiti.
According to the Department of State, kidnapping is a significant problem there. Other serious issues include civil unrest, violent crime, and poor health care.
Trinidad & Tobago
There's a lot to like about Trinidad and Tobago, but the U.S. Department of State has issued a Level 3 advisory advising tourists to "reconsider travel."
The advisory warns of violent crimes like kidnapping and terrorism and suggests travelers steer clear of beaches, Fort George, Queen's Park Savannah, and Port of Spain.
Kingston is a natural wonderland featuring beaches and the majestic Blue Mountains, but certain areas of Kingston, like its downtown, should be avoided due to crime rates.
The U.S. Department of State suggests that tourists "reconsider travel" to this region. Serious crimes like armed robberies, murders, and sexual assaults happen frequently.
Montego Bay
Montego Bay is a dreamy place to spend a day by the shore, but as with many Jamaican cities, this coastal gem has a dark side that you should be wary about visiting.
The area is deemed a "do not travel" zone for U.S. government employees due to concerns about violent crime and limited health and emergency care facilities.
While Guyana's capital, Georgetown, has many historic buildings, the city suffers from widespread crime, including murders, carjackings, and armed robberies.
Drug trafficking is another major problem, and Georgetown's criminal activities extend into tourist sites. The U.S. Department of State warns visitors to "reconsider travel."
