How do you send and receive your letters and package mail? Are local postal facilities adequate?

Diplomatic Post Office (DPO). - May 20, 2016

The embassy is trying to get a diplomatic post office. Until then you cannot send packages through the embassy. - Sep 6, 2009
We use the pouch at the embassy. Not sure how others do it. - May 20, 2009
DHL functions well here, but it is prohibitably expensive. The Guinean mail system is not reliable, so if there were no pouch I'd have to use DHL. - Mar 26, 2008
