Arriving in Destination

Aéroport International de Cotonou Cadjéhoun Upon arrival, porters wearing blue uniforms will surround you. It's best to pay one for safe transfer of your luggage and a seamless transfer (past the aggressive touts and rampant thieves) to the taxi stand (tip them about CFA1500 to CFA2000). Taxis are the best way to get to the the city and cost around CFA3000 to CFA6000 to the centre (depending on your negotiating skills).
