Mexico’s Top 4 Most Dangerous Cities For 2024: Data Repor

Dec 29, 2023

News

For good reason, Mexico is one of the most sought-after travel destinations worldwide.

However, not every area of Mexico is secure for tourists. Here are the most hazardous cities in Mexico in 2024 that data reports suggest.

Due to worries about crime and kidnapping, the U.S. Department of State’s travel advisory for Mexico as of 2023 emphasizes varying degrees of caution across different states. Mexico’s regions are categorized by the advisory into four levels:

  • Exercise Normal Precautions
  • Exercise Increased Caution
  • Reconsider Travel
  • Do Not Travel

Tijuana

Tijuana’s high murder rate and drug-related violence make it the most dangerous city in Mexico. There are 138 homicides for every 100,000 people. Tijuana is the main gateway for drugs originating in South America, making it a hub for cartel activity.

Due to its proximity to the US border, it is also a significant hub for organized crime and human trafficking. Based on data on homicide rates, Tijuana is regarded as the world’s most dangerous city.

Acapulco

Despite being one of the most dangerous cities in Mexico, Acapulco continues to draw large numbers of tourists due to its beaches.

The rate of homicide in the city is 111 per 100,000 residents. Drug-related violence in Acapulco has increased dramatically as different cartels compete for control of the lucrative drug trade in the city. This city is also located in Guerrero, the notorious state well-known for its high rates of violence, chaos brought on by gang turf wars, and heroin production.

Ciudad Victoria

Ciudad Victoria, one of the most violent cities in Mexico, is situated in the state of Tamaulipas. This area is another hotbed of drug-related violence, with a homicide rate of 86 per 100,000 residents. Being situated just beyond the U.S. border, Tamaulipas makes it an entryway city as well. In Ciudad Victoria, members of the Northeast Cartel actively manage their businesses.

Ciudad Juarez

Ciudad Juarez is visible to residents of El Paso, another border city, across the Rio Grande. The city is among the most violent in Mexico, with an average of 86 homicides for every 100,000 residents. The city has witnessed a sharp increase in violence as a result of turf wars between the Juarez and Sinaloa cartels, making it another hub for drug trafficking. Ciudad Juarez is firmly under the control of these two formidable cartels.

Tourism Minister Tetsuo Saito and U.S. Ambassador to Japan Rahm Emanuel signed a memorandum on Wednesday designating 2024 as a year to promoting tourism between the two countries. During this year the two parties will work together to boost tourism exchange using joint efforts from the public and private sectors in a bid to heighten the recovery of the demand for travel since the COVID-19 pandemic. Citing that 464 cities share sister relationships between the two countries, Saito called for taking advantage of the tourism year to resume and boost the exchanges at the local levels. After the two countries agreed to the plan to apply on Japanese tourists, which will help expedite immigration procedures in the U.S. held at the residence in Tokyo of the ambassador, it was also attended by Japanese Digital Transformation Minister Taro Kono and Justice Minister Ryuji Koizumi. Under the supervision of the Tourism Year initiative, both the countries will hold travel campaigns for the general public and it will host events for travel agencies from the two countries. The number of visitors from the U.S. to Japan has been steadily going up with the help of the fall of the value of the yen against the dollar. The monthly number amounted to some 210,000 in October, with an increase of 40% from the same month in 2019, prior to the pandemic. Meanwhile, the number of Japanese visitors to the United States in October came up at about 140,000, less than half of the pre-pandemic numbers.
