What to do in Liberia: The Country in Africa Where You Can Use Dollars!


Today, our adventure is in Liberia, a country on the west coast of Africa, which has a surprising peculiarity: you can use dollars there! Yes, you heard that right, but we'll talk more about that in a moment.


Liberia has a complex and interesting history, marked by colonization, independence, civil war and an incredible determination to rise again. This nation is a true symbol of resilience, with its natural and cultural beauties.


And now, let's get to our list of 5 places you need to visit in Liberia. First, we have the capital, Monrovia, full of history and culture. Next, Sapo National Park, for nature lovers. Then we have the charming Robertsport, perfect for surfers. Also visit the Firestone Rubber Plantation, an intriguing insight into the country's industrial history. Finally, the Ducor Palace Hotel, despite being in ruins, is a place that shows the grandeur of Liberia in the past.


Liberia has its own currency, the Liberian dollar, but guess what? The US dollar is also accepted throughout the country! And for our Brazilian friends, it is necessary to apply for a visa before traveling. The official language is English, so communication there is quite smooth.

It is important to highlight that, although Liberia is recovering after years of civil war, the socioeconomic and political situation is still challenging. The country still faces problems such as unemployment, poverty and corruption.


But back to our fun curiosity in the title: Liberia, due to its unique history of colonization by freed slaves from the United States, adopted the American dollar as one of its official currencies! That's not something you see every day, is it?
