Abidjan - Post Report Question and Answers

What have been the highlights of your time in this country? Best trips or experiences?

Assinie and Grand Basam are great close to home getaways. You can go for a day trip or stay over, and there are several resorts in both places. Definitely check out the Banco while you are here as well. - Mar 2021

Making good friends and enjoying family. - Mar 2017

Côte d'Ivoire is, with a few exceptions, a safe country to travel around in.
