Top Ten Most Dangerous Countries in Central America

This list shows the most dangerous, most crime-filled countries in Central America.

The Top Ten

1 Honduras Honduras Honduras became an independent nation in September 15, 1821. Bordering Countries: Guatemala, El Salvador, and Nicaragua. Capital: Tegucigalpa, FM Population: 8 Million Language: Spanish Major Exports: Coffee, Bananas, Apparel, and Palm Oil. Currency: Lempira

Yeah, of course this would be number one on this list! Why not! This country has the highest homicide rate in the whole world along with El Salvador, Coast Ivore and Venezuela! Avoid Tegucigalpa as much as possible! I reccomend you to NOT visit this country! - darthvadern

So much violence in just one country is really sad.

Country with most murders. - Slovenija

Have you actually been to Honduras though? Despite what online reports say and many shares (mainly from people who have ‘heard its dangerous but actually never been’), I’m living proof to say it was actually one of the safest feeling and most pleasant countries I visited in Central America. I preferred it and felt more safe there than Costa Rica, which everyone still thinks is still safe and nice for some reason! Yes some parts are but it’s very expensive and pretty over rated compared to neighbouring countries.

2 El Salvador El Salvador El Salvador, officially the Republic of El Salvador, is the smallest and the most densely populated country in Central America.

This has the second highest homicide rate in the world, it's not as dangerous as Honduras, but still very dangerous, I've heard than San Salvador, the capital city is really dangerous. - darthvadern

VERY DANGEROUS! In southern San Salvador they kidnap boys age 12+ please when you go there try to protect your children

It was literally named the deadliest place on Earth and over 4,000 people dies last year.

Because I said so

3 Belize Belize Belize is a country on the eastern coast of Central America. It is the only country in Central America whose official language is English, though Belizean Creole and Spanish are also commonly spoken.

Most of the crime in Belize is concentrated in a small section of Belize City. The very small population gives the impression Belize experiences many homicides, but such statistics misrepresent the overall experience. There are truly beautiful locations in the country that are well worth visiting, and offer a truly virgin experience of an unmolested land.

Very dangerous, do not visit cities like Belize City, go to the tourist towns instead. - darthvadern

4 Guatemala Guatemala Guatemala, officially the Republic of Guatemala, is a country in Central America bordered by Mexico to the north and west, the Pacific Ocean to the southwest, Belize to the northeast, the Caribbean to the east, Honduras to the east and El Salvador to the southeast.

It has a high homicide rate, it you can tourist here, just be VERY careful! - darthvadern

This place is beautiful and gorgeous, I think it is fine

5 Nicaragua Nicaragua Nicaragua, officially the Republic of Nicaragua, is the largest country in the Central American isthmus.

It's one ofd the safer countries is South America, but it's still more dangerous than most European countries! - darthvadern

Its dangerous loop

6 Panama Panama Panama, officially called the Republic of Panama, is a country in Central America situated between North and South America.

This is actully kinda safe, it's just at the border to Colombia it''s kinda dangerous. - darthvadern

7 Costa Rica Costa Rica Costa Rica, officially the Republic of Costa Rica, is a country in Central America, bordered by Nicaragua to the north, Panama to the southeast, the Pacific Ocean to the west, the Caribbean Sea to the east, and Ecuador to the south of Cocos Island.

I have a friends from Costa Rica, and to be honest, this country is safe! With beautiful jungles too, this is a safe country to visit! Sure, avoid San Jose and be careful, but count on that it's the safest in Central America! - darthvadern
