No two places are the same; each is blessed with its own personality. So, take to the wide open road and stop by a few of the other areas around Varela.
History buffs will adore Guinea-Bissau's fascinating old towns, historic palaces and fortresses.
Bird watching and wildlife watching are just some of the great low stress activities in this area.
There is no better approach to get to the heart of an area than sampling the food from the region. Some ingredients you'll find in many Guinea-Bissau menus are peppers and millet. Jollof (rice) and yucca fries are common dishes enjoyed by tourists and local foodies. But your meal is not really complete until you have tried fried banana, a common dessert in these parts. At the end of your meal, kick back by ordering a refreshing local black tea.
When it's time to leave this special place, say a fond Adeus (farewell) to the interesting characters you've met and the places you've seen.
