About Porto Novo and Places to Visit
Mercury Jets provides private jet charter flights to and from Porto Novo.
In the southeastern part of Benin, on the coast of the Gulf of Guinea, lies the third-largest city and capital of the country, the picturesque Porto Novo. It is a cultural, economic, and political center where palm oil is produced and oil fields are located. Today it is home to just over 220 thousand people. The best time to visit is from December to March; at other times, there is heavy rainfall due to the subequatorial and equatorial climate.
Porto Novo was founded around the 18th century as the capital of a small African country. It was settled by the Portuguese and became a center for the slave trade, which had a significant impact on the cultural and historical heritage of the country. Furthermore, it is a beautiful place with many historical monuments and important museums such as the Ethnographic Museum, which has an extensive collection of sacred objects of ancient peoples. Also, visitors should visit the ornamental church as an example of folk art and the fishing villages in the lagoon. On the outskirts of Porto Novo, one finds the famous market Grand Marche d’Ajara and an immaculate beach with clean and clean seawater.
Cotonou Cadjehoun Airport (COO, DBBB) is excellent for private charters to and from Porto Novo. It is a public airport 24 miles from the center of Porto Novo, which is the main point of entry into the country and the largest in the region.
