Liberia in detail

When to go and weather

  • The December to July dry season is the most popular time to visit. During the rains, which usually begin in May or June and peter out in October, there are spectacular storms and good waves for surfers.
  • Liberia is humid most of the year with annual rainfall heavy in Monrovia and along the coast. Temperatures range from 23°C to 32°C in Monrovia, and are slightly higher inland. Forested areas tend to feel slightly cooler.
  • Peak tourist season is October through January: prices are at their highest and prime lodging books up. Shoulder season, September or February, is a solid time to visit with reasonable prices.
