Top Spot for Black American Tourists Not in Any Order
There’s a reason Stella went to Jamaica to get her groove back! The food, music, beaches, and “irie vibes” make this Caribbean isle a wonderful place to recharge after a hectic period.

3. The Bahamas
Everything about Ghana makes it a top destination for Black Americans. The people, the food, the history, the culture. There’s something to do every night in Accra, whether it be karaoke, learning to dance Kizomba, or enjoying a delicious dinner with friends. It’s also worth the three-hour drive to visit Cape Coast Castle, where many of our ancestors were enslaved and shipped to South America, the Caribbean and the United States. Ghana is known for being one of the safest and most welcoming west African countries. It has a has a murder rate much lower than the United States, and has the 3rd lowest homicide rate in Africa.
6. Paris, France
From the beaches of the Riviera to the cafes of Paris, there’s no better country to practice self-care. Whether you choose to get your sommelier on with a wine-tasting course in Bordeaux, castle hop in the Loire Valley, or simply get swept up in the romance and whimsy of the historical Alsace region, France is where you can relax, unwind, and make everything all about you
Home to the largest African population outside of Africa, black women will feel at home immediately in Brazil. In addition to its beautiful beaches, iconic landmarks (that means Cristo Redentor or Christ the Redeemer, duh), Brazil is a beautiful mix of diversity that has created its native food, music and culture. Brazil can also be a gateway to see more of South America’s biggest attractions in other countries like Argentina, Peru, Patagonia and many more! Carnival anyone?
9. South Africa
South Africa has beautiful beaches, great restaurants, scenic safaris and so much more. But don’t mistake South Africa for just a pretty face. Apartheid officially ended in 1994, so the country is still undergoing a renovation of sorts. Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban are all so amazing, yet all so different so do careful research before you go so you can meet your particular vacation needs. South Africa has an underlying energy that is hard to explain but it’s so magnetic. You may never come home!
