Accra, Ghana’s capital city, is full of a mix of old and new as it comes into its own as a developing nation. It is commonplace to see individuals wearing traditional clothing while speaking to someone on a cell phone. The country’s coastal location offers a hot, tropical climate and beautiful beaches. While there are many beaches to visit, it is important to know that the waters can be rough with strong undercurrents, so be cautious when entering the water. If the waters don’t excite you, Kakum National Park is a protected area for diverse wildlife and vegetation including 300 species of birds. The park also offers a canopy walkway to take your visit to new heights.
