A great city. Hospitable and not at all lacking in atmosphere. Different to the rest of Southern Africa's cities, infact is a one of a kind. The beaches aren't the country's best, except on Inhaca Island. The highrises and nice neighourhoods are crammed in a conveniently small area close to the sea, that's where the nice food and drinks + accommodation is. So transportation isn't an issue as it's easier just to walk. The Maputense youth know how to party, and have a good time. It isn't a great city to 'do' in a rush.. but it is truly loved by nearly all those who stayed longer.
Good hope it will remain like that. Authorities should keep on doing the good work to preserve the Bazaruto Marine Park in its natural state
