Pablo Escobar may be long dead, but even though there was recent recognition of Medellin as the best tourist destination in South America, the country still poses a high risk for tourists. Armed gangs, drug trafficking, criminal groups and enterprises such as BACRIM, and robberies still occur throughout the country, while the capital sometimes suffers from acts of terrorism.

The country’s capital, Sanaa, is the base of many rebel groups that target and detain mostly American citizens. The country also has a high prevalence of active extremist groups such as Al-Qa’ida.
