In brief: STD spares no area

Anywhere in the world is a potential place for STD with unsafe sex .
The appearance or hygienic habit of a partner does not provide prediction. Obviously sex workers would be the most likely transmitter . Usually the poorer the area, the less selective are the sex workers, the more likely you are going to contract STD (Africa, SE Asia etc)

In brief: Several areas

Africa is endemic, but South Florida (Palm Beach and south) has the United States highest concentration of HIV infected individuals.

In brief: Anywhere

The most common would be in countries in which sexual promiscuity is rampant and where HIV often goes untreated so that viral loads are quite high.
