When traveling it is important to know in advance the chosen destination, not only to prepare the route, choose flights and accommodation, know something about their culture and customs, it is also necessary to know what kind of dangers we can find and how to solve it, so the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation reports, on its website, which countries are more dangerous and which ones should not be visited.

El Salvador because it has one of the highest homicide rates in the world and there are criminal groups called “maras” (gangs) operating throughout the country; in Honduras the insecurity situation is serious, especially in the large urban centers of Tegucigalpa, Ceiba and San Pedro Sula; in Nicaragua where there are strong disturbances in several parts of the country; Venezuela has a very high level of insecurity, and homicide and kidnapping rates are a cause for concern.

In St. Lucia, with the start of the high tourist season, the number of violent street robberies, rapes and especially armed robberies in homes has increased again; in Guatemala, in February, the Fuego volcano erupted; and finally, in Suriname there may be cases of infection by the dengue, chikungunya and zika viruses.

Although the decision to travel is the sole responsibility of the traveler, the Foreign Ministry “strongly urges” that citizens refrain from visiting certain countries, those which, either because of epidemics or terrorist threats, are considered “unsafe” by the authorities.

In addition, the authorities recommend traveling with extreme caution and avoiding travel to contiguous areas where unrest and terrorist attacks have been reported, such as in Mali, Kenya and Ethiopia.

Following the recent mass political demonstrations that paralyzed Hong Kong’s airport, Foreign Affairs recommends “avoiding the districts where protests are taking place” which “may cause the closure of different areas of the city” and even affect air traffic.

The political, economic and social crisis that Venezuela is going through has increased insecurity, mainly in Caracas, with one of the highest crime rates in the world, so Foreign Affairs advises to maximize precautions in case of traveling to the South American country.

All Europe is entering the spring heat so it is a good time to visit almost any country. If you prefer you can also visit Jordan as it has warm weather and no rainfall. The Caribbean is already ending its high season although you can go before the rainy season starts. This month is not the best month to travel to Asia, it is its low season, with the exception of Japan or parts of China. India starts its monsoon season and so does Sri Lanka.

Where do I book my hotels? When I travel I usually compare several sites but I always choose Booking for several reasons… They have the widest range of hotels, I usually find the best prices and I also have other advantages such as free cancellation or the 10% “Genius” discount. As if this were not enough, they match the price if you see it cheaper on another website.

When I think of where to travel in Africa? There are two destinations that automatically come to mind: the island of Zanzibar and Kenya. Below I tell you more about each of them and explain why they are a wise choice.

On the other hand, Kenya is one of the best places to go on safari in Africa, it has many Natural Parks where with organized tours you can visit the animals that live in them. Another of my recommendations for your trip to Kenya, is to meet the Maasai people, which has about 880,000 people approximately, there is always something you can learn, especially with such different cultures.

Now that you know the two best destinations to travel to in Africa, let me also give you some good advice on where to book your tour.
