Chihuahua

Chihuahua is the capital city of the Mexican state of Chihuahua. The buildings are in a beautiful unique architectural style and a visit here offers the chance to taste the amazing local cuisine. Although it’s safer than some large Mexican cities, Chihuahua is a risky area to visit. The city has high rates of drug-rated and gang crime. There’s a rivalry in Chihuahua between the powerful and dangerous Sinaloa Cartel and the Juarez Cartel. People caught up in the rivalry often get murdered. In 2017, Chihuahua had a population of 929,884 people and saw 460 homicides, making it one of the most dangerous cities in Mexico and worldwide.

Natural Disaster Risk: HIGH
