If you're the sort of traveler who fantasizes about soft, silky sheets, compare the amenities at the Pullman Douala Rabingha (35 Avenue Des Cocotiers) or the Hôtel SAWA (488 Rue De Verdun - Bonanjo). That said, you don't plan a getaway to stay in your room all week. If you've been looking for a more economical option, consider the Hotel Le Chateau (Boulevard de l'Aeroport) or the Hôtel Lumière D'Akwa (Rue Dubois de Saligny).
Plug in your headphones and binge-watch a couple of films. Before long, you'll be descending into Douala International Airport (DLA). It's 3 miles (5 kilometers) to the west from central Douala.
Take a walk around Douala and experience the distinct culture. If you want to head further out, grabbing a rental car via Travelocity is a great choice.
If you need a ride from Douala International Airport, unfortunately, there aren't any car rental outlets right at the terminal. You'll have to find another way to journey into the city, 3 miles (5 kilometers) away.
If you'd like to venture a little further afield, you could visit Limbe, which is 40 miles (64 kilometers) away. The Limbe Botanical Gardens is just one of the interesting things to do here. You could also stop at Limbe Wildlife Centre.
