It is a port town, full of dusty dirt roads, and very tough people standing around, not looking happy to see you. When I was there in 2010 there was a cholera camp in town, the private security firm Guard Dog had just had a firefight with the Military, and the town (with the help of the military) had lynched a gang of rascals (hardcore gangsters) who had be holding the town in terror with a long run violent crime spree. You are on your own here.
Lived there for 18 months, the culture, weather and humidity maybe too much for some but i loved it. Despise the bout of Malaria.
