Located along the Atlantic Coast region of Central Africa, the Equatorial Guinea changed its name from Spanish Guinea when it achieved independence.

It has one of the largest oil reserves in Africa, which makes the nation one of the richest, per-capita, on the continent today.

Despite that wealth, opportunities can be few and far between in Equatorial Guinea. The nation ranks in the bottom 20% for human development, human trafficking can be a significant problem, and certain freedoms can be restricted at any time. One must pay close attention to the political climate of the nation when planning a trip to this coastal destination.

Two regions are identified in Equatorial Guinea: its islands and the mainland. In both areas, you will find the people to be generally warm and hospitable. You will also find that the political structures are expected to be followed at all times. Photographs of any government-owned property are strictly forbidden. Even carrying a camera can create a conflict with some local police. Any talk of politics that is deemed to be critical of the nation’s leadership can be treated as a criminal offense.

Organized tours with vetted guides is the best way to experience Equatorial Guinea. Once there, explore Montel Alen National Park, the Freedom Tower at Bata, the beaches and nature reserve at Bioko, and the Santa Isabel Cathedral in Malabo.

With tropical weather patterns, Equatorial Guinea is warm all year long. Its beaches are beautiful all year as well. By taking the correct precautions while planning an itineray, a visit here can be an intriguing experience.
