Cote d'Ivoire is well known for its coastal scenery, beautiful national parks and abundant wildlife.

Favorite sites to visit include the Comoe National Park which is the largest reserve in this area of Africa; the huge Basilica of Our Lady of Peace in Yamoussoukro, along with the beautiful beaches along the Gulf of Guinea.

Following a period of unrest and political instability, Cote d'Ivoire's situation has become safer and more secure. However, many of the world's governments are warning their citizens to reconsider the need for travel here.

Tourism facilities in and near the administrative center of Abidjan, are good while accommodations in many other locations are limited in quality and availability.
