Elmina is a fishing port on the south coast of Ghana, and It’s known for its beaches and for its role in the transatlantic slave trade. Elmina Castle, built by the Portuguese in 1482, was a base for trading slaves, gold and ivory. To Elmina is a long travel day so you may want to bring a book or a pack of cards to enjoy with your fellow travelers – although there’s plenty of fascinating scenery to keep you occupied. The drive will take seven hours, and on the way, you’ll stop at a cocoa plantation to learn about how this global commodity is grown and harvested. Once you’ve checked into your hotel, enjoy a free evening to explore the fishing port town or relax on the beach after your travels.  The next day we will visit the Castle!
