What is the best time to visit Liberia?
Liberia remains open throughout the year. Its proximity to the equator keeps temperature somewhat consistent – hot and humid. The Atlantic Ocean plays an important role in Liberia’s climate. On the coast, especially in the city of Monrovia, the temperature never really goes to the extreme; it is checked by the moderating nature of the ocean. So, extreme temperatures usually are never experienced on Liberia’s coastline. The further inland you travel, the more humid it would become in the summer months. It is perhaps a bit easier coming to these areas in the winter when the winds pick up and blow away the moisture from the air. Fortunately, Liberia receives minimal rainfall throughout the year, so expect open sky throughout your trip.

The lagoon is filled with brackish water; many rivers discharge into the lagoon but a small outlet also connects the pool with the Atlantic Ocean. The briny water of the ocean mixes with the fresh water in the shallow lagoon to become a breeding ground for many fish species. Many small islands in the lagoon are a sanctuary for the many birds that migrate to the lagoon to breed. Robertsport is a small port town at the mouth of the lagoon that has many excursion activities for the tourists heading to Lake Piso.
