Located in Central Africa, Equatorial Guinea is the only nation in Africa whose national language is Spanish. It has the top per capita income in all of Africa due to its vast oil reserves and exportation. Despite its name, Equatorial Guinea is not situated near the equator; it actually is well within the northern hemisphere, with the exception of Annobón Province, which lies in the southern hemisphere.
Equatorial Guinea has a tropical climate with the dry season running from December to February in Bioko and from June to August in Río Muni. The city of Annobón has daily rains and a totally cloudless day has never occurred in the city's history. Guests at hotels in Equatorial Guinea should book reservations on Expedia for a stay during the dry season for the most enjoyable visit.
The culture of Equatorial Guinea is a mix of African and Hispanic traditions. The nation celebrates Christian holidays as well as national observances such as Independence Day on October 12 and President's Day on June 5.
