We’re going to talk about different countries, different islands of places that most of our readers have been to, and we’re pretty sure that there’s a lot more to add on the list.

To start off with what we consider to be the motherland.

Cities like Cape Town, where get a chance to explore different parishes and villages, you will feel very much welcomed there in Cape Town. It’s beautiful and we highly recommend people going,  other cities like Johannesburg are also beautiful and the people are very welcoming to African AMericans

2. Morocco.

This section gives you simple and practical information to understand the customs and daily life of Moroccans, have an idea of the cost of living and the currency used, know the essential addresses, transport infrastructure and useful numbers.

 

3. Burkina faso

Burkina Faso is one of the friendliest and, until recently, one of the safest, countries in all of Africa. Although it receives only a small number of tourists per year, it is an excellent destination for anyone interested in seeing a beautiful West African country and exploring African culture and music.

Visa
Passport and a visa are required to enter the country. It may be best to obtain your visa in advance, and make sure that it is allowed for the period you’re travelling as, for several reasons including epidemics, tourism is not allowed in the country in some periods.


The BF embassy in Washington offers six-month, multiple-entry visas for US$100. US citizens only are eligible for a five-year, multiple-entry visa for US$100.


4. Ghana

Is absolutely our favorite country in Africa ,Ghana is a very friendly country, ideal for first time travellers to Africa. The people are generally very helpful and welcoming , they are not aggresive. While their laid back attitude and lack of organized tourist sights/trips can be a little annoying to begin with, before you have been there for very long you realize that it is one of the delights of this country.

Tourism in Ghana is growing very quickly, and more tour operators are seeing increased requests for Ghana as a travel destination. Ghana is also rich in gold. This is a stable country with great potential for growth though much more needs to be done in terms of its infrastructure.

Visa requirements
Foreign nationals of the following countries can enter Ghana visa-free:

ECOWAS countries, plus Botswana, Egypt, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Singapore, Swaziland, Tanzania, Trinidad and Tobago, Uganda and Zimbabwe

Otherwise, unless in direct airside transit through a Ghanaian airport, all other foreign nationals require a visa to enter Ghana. For information about obtaining visas for Ghana, visit the official website of the Ghana Immigration Service.

There is no such thing as a visa on arrival for Western countries. It’s thus best to play it safe and get a visa in advance.

 

5. Columbia.

In Colombian cities, the climate merges with the warmth of its people . Colombia is synonymous with joy and hospitality, as well as cultural diversity. It is a country where people are as warm as the weather, sometimes even warmer, and you can feel it from the moment they greet you and as they accompany you throughout your stay. For example, it happens in the Colombian Caribbean, where not only the rays of the sun embrace you, but also the warmth of tourist hospitality that is found at every corner.

 

In destinations such as Cartagena, Barranquilla, Santa Marta, and San Andrés and Providencia, the ‘coastal people’ welcome you with a joyful, outgoing personality and great kindness. This makes it easy to enjoy emblematic places such as the Historic Center of Cartagena, wondrous places like Bocas de Ceniza in Barranquilla, the contrast of the beach with the whitecaps of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta and the sea of seven colors in the San Andrés Archipelago, declared a World Biosphere Reserve.

 

6. Caribbean Islands.

The Caribbean is a region of the Americas that comprises the Caribbean Sea, its surrounding coasts, and its islands. The region lies southeast of the Gulf of Mexico and of the North American mainland, east of Central America, and north of South America.

Any country with a coast on the Caribbean Sea can be considered a Caribbean country, but not all of them are islands, including Mexico, Belize, and Colombia. Some island nations that are commonly believed to be a part of the Caribbean, like the Bahamas and Bermuda, are technically in the Atlantic Ocean, and Guyana, which is neither an island nor located on the Caribbean Sea, is considered a part of the Caribbean because it still has a deep cultural connection to the region.

 

7. Puerto Rico.  
It’s one of those places that you do not need a passport.

Puerto Rico, officially Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, Spanish Estado Libre Asociado de Puerto Rico, self-governing island commonwealth of the West Indies, associated with the United States. The easternmost island of the Greater Antilles chain, it lies approximately 50 miles (80 km) east of the Dominican Republic, 40 miles (65 km) west of the Virgin Islands, and 1,000 miles (1,600 km) southeast of the U.S. state of Florida. It is situated in the northeastern Caribbean Sea, its northern shore facing the Atlantic Ocean. Two small islands off the east coast, Vieques and Culebra, are administratively parts of Puerto Rico, as is Mona Island to the west. Compared with its Greater Antillean neighbours, Puerto Rico is one-fifth as large as the Dominican Republic, one-third the size of Haiti, and slightly smaller than Jamaica. It is roughly rectangular in shape, extending up to 111 miles (179 km) from east to west and 39 miles (63 km) from north to south. The capital is San Juan.
