Equatorial Guinea

Equatorial Guinea is located on the western coast of Africa, and is home to more than 1.5 million people. Malabo is the capital of Equatorial Guinea and Spanish is the official language, although French and Portuguese is also widely spoken.

Equatorial Guinea is a former colony of Spain, having won its independence in 1968. The climate is tropical, with warm temperatures and heavy rainfall (like Florida) and much of the country – especially away from the coastline – is covered by a tropical rainforest.

The economy of Equatorial Guinea used to revolve around cocoa, coffee and timber, but now is fueled by an abundance of natural gas that was discovered in the late 1980s.
