If you ever need help finding Equatorial Guinea
on a map, first, get your reading glasses, it's possible that this tiny country has simply evaded your eyes due to its pint-sized area. Then remember that the equator really does pass right through Equatorial Guinea and scan along the middle of the globe.
Travelers are lured to Equatorial Guinea by the dense, rugged jungles and inland rainforest or by the beautiful beaches on the coast. Unfortunately, Equatorial Guinea has little else to offer travelers who come inside its tiny borders.
What to do
Your options are really limited to the beach or the jungle here. Luckily, both of these options are world class, unspoiled and undeveloped attractions that have not been converted to tourist friendly shams of the jungle or beach like you'll find elsewhere in the world.
