Equatorial Guinea is a country of luscious vegetation and beautiful scenery, including tropical forests and snowcapped volcanoes. The capital, Malabo, is a rather rundown but attractive town, with pleasant Spanish colonial architecture, a striking volcanic setting and a lively market. The white-sand beaches around the islands are stunning. No wonder the country was first of all named 'Formosa', meaning 'beautiful', by the Portuguese.

The area was first colonized by the Portuguese in the late 15th century and handed over to the Spanish in 1788. Self-government was granted in 1959, followed by full independence in 1968.Its economy has expanded rapidly following the discovery of oil and gas deposits in the Gulf of Guinea, though little of this wealth has trickled down to the general population.

The Mesmerizing Malabo
Malabo is the capital city of Equatorial Guinea. Found on the edge of this city is a deep-set volcano. This site has endorsed Malabo to have an exceptional terrain and wildlife, combined with the buzz of being an African capital city.

The Santa Isabel Cathedral is a must-see for all visitors to the African city, positioned in the Plaza de España. The cathedral is built in a Gothic-Spanish style, and makes available a contrast to the architecture around it. The Presidential palace is situated in the same square, and is worth a visit as well. Positioned on a volcano, Malabo offers sights such as craters and lakes that cannot be seen elsewhere.
The beaches are a widespread leisure or weekend spot for locals and tourists alike, and a day must be certainly be spent on the beach.

It’s Finger Licking Good!!
Equatorial Guinea has many yummy and delicious foods. Distinctive to most West African countries in the continent, they use peanuts, tomatoes, cassava, yams and a few treats, like monkey meat, that isn't readily a v a i l a b l e in the US - even from an o u t l a n d i s h meat vendor. C u s t o m a r y b r e a k f a s t foods include: boiled yams or cassava, bean cakes and ground millet porridge, which is very similar to grits. French food is common in Malabo, and some of the hotels can make available very genuine French cuisine. Local food is simply available by the roadside. A safer play would certainly be the hotel cafeteria or restaurant, where a dish of smoked beef and pepper is the prevalent national dish.

What to Do in Equatorial Guinea
