Top Ten Most Dangerous South American Countries

I'll admit, I love South America, but I also have to admit it's very dangerous. Here are the most dangerous countries in South America.

The Top Ten Most Dangerous South American Countries

1 Venezuela Venezuela, officially the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, is a federal republic located on the northern coast of South America.

Venezuela is definitely the most dangerous South American country, in fact, it is maybe the most dangerous country on the american continent! Now sure, the mountains are so beautiful you would feel like you lived in a movie, but the country ITSELF is super dangerous, Caracas is one of the most dangerous cities in the world and has the highest homicide rate along with the country Honduras. Bad goverment does it have too! So if you want to visit a South American country, DO NOT GO HERE UNLESS YOU WANT TO BE ROBBED OR ANYTHING WORSE! - darthvadern

It is very boring and don't waste your time.

2 Brazil Brazil, officially the Federative Republic of Brazil, is the largest country in both South America and the Latin American region.

I'm Brazilian so I can say this. Even though our country over the years has become more and more dangerous, it doesn't take that Brazil is a very beautiful country with lots of beautiful places to visit ad enjoy. Our country is going through a horrible time but that doesn't mean people can be saying horrible comments about it.

Wow this is really ridiculous. Brazil is dangerous, however, as far as I know all the laying America is. What happened to Tegucigalpa?

This place is a dump. Rude people, women not even cute, just oversexualized. Kids from the Favelas robbing good folk left and right... front and back. I'm beginning to assume they don't even have beds at home the way the people be.Never returning to this junkyard every again in my life. Oh and the beaches are unsanitary.

The fact that this country is number #2 on the best south american countries list proves how much people are unintelligent! People get robbed all the time and the only reason people care about this country is because is because of the oversexualized women! I think it deserves to be lower on that list! Sure it has beautiful beaches and a beautiful jungle (Amazonas), but people get robbed al the time, and the samba music is HORRIBLE! No offense to anyone who is brazilian. - darthvadern

3 Colombia Colombia, officially the Republic of Colombia, is a country situated in the northwest of South America, bordered to the northwest by Panama; to the east by Venezuela and Brazil; to the south by Ecuador and Peru; and it shares maritime limits with Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, Jamaica, Dominican Republic more.

You'll be fine. Just learn a bit of Spanish, don't wear lots of Gucci or other expensive, branded clothes in large areas with lots of people, don't wear lots of jewellery, and you will be safe. Colombia is an amazing country, and it is definitely improving. It may not be completely safe just yet, but if you fully immerse yourself in the local culture, even if it means learning the language, buying Colombian clothing and eating like everyone else, you will love Colombia. Don't let the media stop you from visit such a great country.

Colombia is starting to improve but most of the country is REALLY BAD! Many people here have been kidnapped, a decade ago this had one of the highest homicide rates along with Venezuela, Honduras and El Salvador, now thankfully this country is impoving but there are still very BAD things about this country! AND if that wasn't enough then you shall hear me, Colombia is usally counted as one of the countries in the world AT the highest risk of terrorist acts. Colombia is definitely not safe yet! - darthvadern

4 Paraguay Paraguay, officially the Republic of Paraguay, is a landlocked country in central South America, bordered by Argentina to the south and southwest, Brazil to the east and northeast, and Bolivia to the northwest.

What? I'm Paraguayan and it's perfectly fine here

Peru and Uruguay above Paraguay? Brazil at number 2? El Salvador and Honduras don't even place? Why is this a featured list again? - 445956

El Salvador and Honduras aren't South American countries, they're Central American countries, trust me, I'm an expert of Geography and countries. - darthvadern

El salvador and honduras aren't south american

Very dangerous country, procced with caution, it has beacome the Ecuador Version 2, only a b it less dangerous but still, a VERY dangerous but yet beautiful coutry. - darthvadern

5 Bolivia

Worst country

Bolivia is the poorest country in South America, just look at the capital city Sucre! It looks so bland and boring and poor! - darthvadern

6 Ecuador Ecuador, officially the Republic of Ecuador, is a representative democratic republic in northwestern South America, bordered by Colombia on the north, Peru on the east and south, and the Pacific Ocean to the west.

Uruguay, Paraguay, French Guyana, Guyana, Surinam, Bolivia all have higher murder rates than Ecuador, Colombia has a murder rate THREE TIMES higher than Ecuador but Ecuador gets the bronze? haha, no, you're drunk, go home.

Also LOL at "it's very warm down there" the country is smack dab in the andes mountains, the highest mountain chain in the world outside of Asia, the average temperature in the capital Quito is 14c, during the day it can get to 24c at most, and during the night it can go as low as 5c, even in the coastal regions it only gets as warm as, say, a mild summer in Europe. - SantAnder


My gramma once went to Ecuador, she had bought so much things that were super expensive and on the way back to Sweden, she was robbed, she was only going to get the tickets and she placed the things next to her and a couple of seconds later it was stolen! Everything that she bought was stolen! Not to mention this country lies in the equator so I warn you that it wil be VERY warm down there! - darthvadern

It is, however, often considered part of the Caribbean region because of its strong cultural, historical, and political ties with other Anglo-Caribbean countries and the Caribbean Community. more.

Most of the country consists of cocaine plains and so, but it dosen't have a messed up goverment lucky enough! - darthvadern

10 Chile Chile, officially the Republic of Chile, is a South American country occupying a long, narrow strip of land between the Andes to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the west.

Murder rate of just 3.59 per 100.00 inhabitants, it is not only the safest country in South America, not only the safest country in Latin America, but also the second safest country in ALL of the Americas, after Canada, that's right, Chile is safer than the United States! (murder rate of 4.88) - SantAnder

You can walk in the streets with no peril at all. All statistics confirm that this is a safe place to be, low murder rates, no kidnappings and nice people
