Yes actually I was going to give similar advise. We both did give some advise to VT member Ramong who was considering a move to Cotonou. He is now living there and would likely be happy to hear from you and give you some pointers. I hve only driven through Cotonou, but had a guide from elsewhere. Here is Ramon's page.

Tell'im Lynne and Erik sent ya......good luck!

Travel Tips for Cotonou

Boulevard Steinmetz

by georeiser

Boulevard Steinmetz is one of the most famous streets in Cotonou. The large 4 lanes street goes all the way from the Vossa area at Lake Nokoue, crossing Avenida van Vollenhoven and down to the Cathedral Librairie Notre-Dame.

Boulevard de la Marina (Beach road)

by georeiser

The Beach road, Boulevard de la Marina, goes all the way from the airport on the western side of Cotonou to the Plakodji area on the eastern side of the city. The western part of the road is nice with official buildings, hotels, private residences and gardens. The eastern side and the harbour area is more poor and look like other African streets in the harbour areas.

Mosquitoes and the Sun

by kbsunnyside

I would recommend using suntan lotion if you're fair skinned. I used Autan bug spray on myself in the evening and didn't have any problems.

I note that even with a nightly spraying (provided by hotel) in our room and closed windows the little devils would get in.

I took malaria pills (Larium) once a week on the first trip (2 weeks) and didn't have any problems. Didn't take anything on the second week long trip and was OK. However, my brother has informed me that malaria is like herpes, only between you and the mosquito. It never really goes away.


by Moesasji

There are possibilities for sporting at the Stade de l'amitie, and you can also join a soccermatch almost everywhere in the city. You will be very welcome. People invited me for joining a match very often, but I am a very bad soccer-player and also very lazy, so I only watched some games. They like that too.

Smoking grass with the Rasta-people

by Moesasji

In some area's in Africa, inclusive Benin, it can be quite hard to find some trustable friends, with exception of the rastapeople who are in most cases quite trustable. They're peacefull and have a lot of musical talent. Try to make contact with them, for just making some music and smoking a lot of grass. It's so f*cking relaxing, and they're so nice.
