Before You Go

Health Insurance

Make sure you have a comprehensive health insurance before you travel, which will cover evacuation and/or repatriation in case of emergency. Also ensure that you have sufficient funds available to cover initial costs of emergency healthcare.

Availability & Cost of Healthcare

Outside of the cities, particularly Abidjan, health services are minimal. In Abidjan, you can find well-equipped clinics: PISAM and Polyclinique des Deux Plateaux are the best.

Tap Water

It's best not to drink tap water anywhere in Côte d'Ivoire. Bottled water is available in shops throughout the country; Awa and Celeste are trusted brands.
