Cotonou — 6 nights

Benin's largest city and its seat of government, bustling Cotonou also has one of the largest ports in West Africa.
Shop till you drop at Artisanal Center and Marche Dantokpa. You'll explore and learn at Ouidah Museum of History and Villa Karo. Explore Cotonou's surroundings by going to Ouidah (Temple des Pythons, La Porte Du Non Retour, &more), Lac Nokoue (in Ganvie) and Porto-Novo (Jardin des Plantes et de la Nature, Ethnographique Museum of Porto Novo, &more). There's much more to do: get outside with Fidjrosse Beach, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Saint Michel church, enjoy the sand and surf at Obama Beach, and admire the striking features of Palais des Congres.
