Abidjan is also known as the “Paris” of West Africa. This part of West Africa, with an estimated population of over 17,000 people, today known as Abidjan, was previously called the Ivory Coast or in French: “La Cote d’Ivoire.”
The climate of Abijan along the coast is tropical and semi-arid in the north. The overall weather is warm and dry from November to March, hot and dry from March to May and hot and wet from June to October.
Enjoy the beaches and forests of Abidjan and be sure to visit “Lobster Village”. While you drink wine and crack your red lobster shells, you can watch the fishing boats going back and forth in search of fresh fish and seafood.
Most of the inhabitants of Abidjan live in the coastal region where there are 60 ethnic groups, each with its own dialect. The commerce of this area is coffee and cocoa, timber, palm oil, petroleum, cotton, fishing and such fruits as bananas and pineapples.
Many of these local businesses are open for public tours. Then, for a change of pace, don’t forget to visit Mount Nimba at 1.752 meters; the highest point in Abidjan.
If you get a chance to visit Yamoussoukro, the capital of the Ivory Coast, you’ll want to check out the grandiose replica of the Basilica of St. Paul’s Cathedral in Rome with its marble columns and 36 stained-glass windows.
