Accra has two rainy seasons: first one between April and mid-July and second one in October. March is generally the hottest month and colder weather is prevalent in August but overall there is very little variation on the temperature which sits around mid-20s all year.
Getting around Accra
Accra’s attractions are quite spread out, so hiring a car and driver for the day can work out to be a money saver. Bigger car hire companies have offices at larger hotels and at Labadi Beach. Taxis can be flagged down and prices should be negotiated beforehand. Tro-tros are public minibuses and cheap, but they are frequently overcrowded and often slow.
Getting to the Airport
Accra’s airport, and the major airport in Ghana, is Kotoka International Airport. Kotoka International Airport is located just over 3 miles from the city centre. Metered taxis and shared taxis (with fixed fares for each passenger) are available for journeys into the city and either of these are a good option, though you may need to haggle on a price with metered taxis. Chauffeur-driven car hire is also available.
