Places in the World prefer not to go Caracas, Venezuela

Caracas, Venezuela

The Foreign Policy magazine dubbed Caracas as the “murder capital of the world” at the end of 2008. In December of that year alone there were 510 people murdered. Like Ciudad Juárez the majority of the violence comes from gangs and drug wars. There has also been an increase in poverty in Venezuela’s capital; between the 1970s and 1990s the poverty rate increased by 300% to 65%. It’s also been reported that the murder rate has increased by 67% since President Chavez took over.
