(Newser) – The most dangerous thing you should do on your honeymoon is order a fourth daiquiri. AolNews helps ensure that's the case by sharing the 5 most dangerous honeymoon spots. Avoid, or tread wisely:

  1. Mexico: John and Jackie Kennedy hit up Acapulco as newlyweds, but you may not want to—a drug-related April 2010 shootout there killed three bystanders, earning the city a spot on a State Department travel warning the following month. Border towns Ciudad Juárez, Nuevo Laredo, and Reynosa are even more dangerous.

  1. Jamaica: If you want to be like the tens of thousands of other blissful Americans who help make this country the Caribbean's No. 1 honeymoon destination, opt to stay in a Montego Bay resort—fights and gun battles have scarred Kingston's streets lately.
  2. Australia: Going Down Under can be downright frightening, thanks to Sydney's recent invasion of deadly funnel web spiders, which can jump up to 18 inches and bite through fingernails and soft shoes.
