Our Americas page covers South and Central America as well as the USA and Canada. As a result,there is a huge range of issues facing travellers. In South and Central America we would highlight the risk of crime, a number of the scams below relate to this. Too often people are being mugged at night when carrying a debit card - next trip will be to the ATM under duress so don't go out with one in high crime areas. Dengue Fever and now Chikungunya Fever is a persistent risk. Big thanks to Sam Lebus for all his recent contributions.
