Liberia is a country situated the west coast of Africa and shares borders with Guinea to the north, Côte d'Ivoire to the east, the Atlantic Ocean to the south and Sierra Leone to the West.
One of the oldest republics in Africa, Liberia has a rich history. After almost 14 years of civil war, tourism in Liberia has registered a stagnation period. The country is not stable politically and economically, while street battles and demonstrations can easily get violent, and these are the reasons why Liberia is not recommended as a good travel destination for tourists. But if the country succeeds in ensuring a stable and safe environment for tourists, travelers will discover a beautiful land with splendid beaches, a bustling capital and diverse wildlife.
If you decide to venture yourself and visit the country, the major tourist destinations in Liberia are: the capital city of Monrovia; Sapo National Park with a wide variety of animals; Silver Beach -one of the most popular beaches in Liberia, Robertsport spa. The best time to visit Liberia is during the dry season, from November until April.
