While it may not have all the infrastructure needed for an increasing number of tourists, the bustling Madagascar capital thrives with world-class restaurants, colonial and religious buildings, markets and wilderness!
Taxis are one of the best, most affordable options, and you can find them almost everywhere. Make sure to negotiate the fares before getting in, as they may change drastically from one driver to the other. While the 'taxi-be' minivans are more budget-friendly, the routes are not easy to understand for foreigners. They could also be somewhat unsafe, so keep an eye on your belongings if you end up using them.
The city features pleasant temperatures varying from 10°C (50°F) to 27°C (81°F). The sky is clear for most of the year, so you can usually enjoy activities without worries. The best time to visit is from May to October, when it's dry and cool. The wet period begins in November and ends in April, but March is usually the wettest month.
