What to wear

Côte d'Ivoire is a hot, humid country and the air can sometimes get breezy in the evenings, so a mix of light, breathable clothing and something to throw on top is a good combination. If you plan to go out in the evenings to any of the more upmarket places in Abidjan, bring something smart – the Ivoirians like to dress up. For any hiking trips, invest in lightweight hiking clothes that soak up sweat easily – the humidity means tons of perspiration – and good hiking boots.
