What are the pros and cons of living in Ghana?

Expats, digital nomads and retirees living in Ghana responded:

"Expats and digital nomads in Ghana appreciate the country's warm climate, friendly people, and vibrant culture. They also enjoy the low cost of living, which allows them to stretch their budget further. On the other hand, some expats and digital nomads find the infrastructure in Ghana to be lacking, with unreliable internet and electricity connections. Additionally, the language barrier can be a challenge for those who don't speak the local language," remarked one expat in Ghana.
