Sports bars are a testament to how seriously this nation takes football. Another favorite nighttime pursuit is betting at the country's numerous sports betting centers.
Finally, join the crowds at Labadi Beach's hedonistic nightlong parties. But before that, check out the salsa and kizomba sessions that take place at the Afrikoko Leisure Center. After a hard night's partying, come home to re-energize at your house rental.
