Because Equatorial Guinea has undergone many years of international isolation, its tourism industry is very undeveloped, with limited hotel space available in Malabo and Bata. Yellow-fever, smallpox, and cholera inoculations are generally required. A visa is not needed.
In 2002, the US government estimated the cost of staying in Malabo at $127 per day. Elsewhere in the country, expenses can be as low as $40 daily.
