I am going to be living in Ghana (near Takoradi) for a month in November and was just looking for any general tips those who have been there before me may have to offer. A couple things I can't seem to find answers to: how cool is it at night? Is it still quite hot or does it cool down a lot from the day? I want to pack the appropriate sleeping bag.
Also I am wondering if it is easy to get around on my weekends off? I would like to do some traveling around on my days off but I know West Africa in general takes its time getting from place to place so I may not be able to venture very far. Any favourite places you've been to in Ghana that you would suggest for me? Also, as a single female traveler is this a good idea? I get the impression Ghana is quite safe but firsthand experience goes a long way!
I have done a lot of research and it seems there is a lot to see and do but if you have a favourite spot/activity/experience in Ghana I would love to hear about it. Or perhaps the opposite, a visit you felt was a waste of time?
Anything tips or suggestions you have to offer would be much appreciated!
