Tijuana Ranked Most Dangerous City

A new report ranks San Diego's sister border city Tijuana is the most dangerous city in the world.

Several other cities in Mexico are also on the most dangerous list. The rankings were included in a report by the Citizens’ Council for Public Security and Criminal Justice. The Los Angeles Times reports that five cities in Mexico are among the most dangerous in the world. The list includes Acapulco, Victoria, Juarez, Irapuato and Tijuana.

n 2018, Tijuana saw 138 homicides per 100,000 people. The report was published shortly after the U.S. Embassy & Consulates in Mexico issued a warning to people traveling for spring break. The report warns of dangers including unregulated alcohol, sexual assault, medical emergencies and breaking the law in Mexico.

According to Journey Mexico, more than 10 million people visited Mexico during the first quarter of 2018. Cancun is one of the top destinations in Mexico for spring breakers. Journey Mexico reports that nearly three million people visited the city in March last year.
