The currency of Mauritania is the Ouguiya. The Euro is more easily accepted for changing. It is very difficult to obtain cash advances through credit cards or exchange travelers’ checks, so we advise that you take your money in cash.
Everyone should bring a basic first aid kit with aspirin, Band-Aids, bandages, antiseptic, antibiotics, diarrhea medicine, a laxative, serum, mosquito repellent, sun cream, etc., as well as any specific medicines for individual specific treatments.
The best time of year to travel is from September to April. In the summer months, the coastal climate is cool with an Atlantic breeze, but in the interior, a typical, hot, dry Saharan climate is the norm. The rainy season lasts from August to October. From November to February, you should take winter clothes and a warm sleeping bag, because the nights can get very cold, although the daytime temperatures are quite pleasant.
The handicrafts of Mauritania include a wide variety of very special costume jewelry and leather products such as the “surmi,” a leather cushion decorated with drawings and fringes, as well as various types of incense burners.
