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)

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.
