Guinea Bissau is a small sovereign state in West Africa located at the bulge on the north of the Republic of Guinea. This tiny nation contains multitudes of landscapes, peoples, cultures and plant and animal life. Its capital city Bissau with its faded colonial-era houses and stooping balconies sag, from tropical decay, and the weight of history prides itself in the ancient historical remnants and architecture reserved since Portuguese colonial times.
The jewel in the country's crown is the labyrinth of tropical islands that make up the Arquipélago dos Bijagós. Here you will discover long white-sand beaches lapped by waters brimming with fish. Hippos, monkeys, chimps and buffaloes thrive in protected reserves, and hundreds of bird species call its vast mangroves and wetlands home.
The people here are friendly and social, and a trip through the villages will leave you with an overwhelming feeling of ecstasy.
The food offered is mouth-watering; imagine a meal of grilled oysters served with spicy lime sauce. The dishes are indigenous and prepared traditionally.
