Talk about one of the coolest West African countries and Ghana pops in our minds. Ghana’s climate is mostly tropical. However, you’ll find the eastern coastal belt somewhat warm and rather dry, compared with the hot and humid South-western front. This warm climate is occasioned by Ghana’s coordinates – just a few degrees north of the Equator. Not a bad idea to have summer last all year round if you ask us.
