I've been traveling in Cape Verde for about two weeks. I'm having a hard time with getting any suggestions for my 5 day stop in Sao Nicolau besides that I should go to Tarrafal.
What are other interesting things to do and see on the island? Should I rent a car or aluger would suffice? Are there any harder to access areas that deserve a visit? Anybody has any experience with Sao Nicolau?
Looking for a company of one or two people to drive to Tarrafal de Monte Trigo (TMT) which is on the "other" side of the island of Santo Antão. We share rental expense of the 4x4. Planning to head out on Thursday, Feb 23 and to return on Sunday, the 26 in time for the last ferry to St. Vincent.
I speak Portuguese and have general idea of the hotel situation in TMT. Respond here or call me. My phone# here in Cape Verde is 584-6832.
Hi everyone ,
if anyone plan to go for surfing/kitesurfing in Sal and Boa vista from 9th february to 22nd february, it will be a pleasure to meet.
On 23rd i'll go to santo antao for trekking (23rd - 26th) before 2 days of carnival in mindelo 27-28th.
If anyone is interested to join the trekking we can do it in group ( with guide ) let me know !
Take care , and have a nice trip !
I am using this forum for the first time - I know the awesome books though already :)
I (m, 26, German) am on Sal with my sister from the 12th to 19th and till the 25th on Boa Vista.
Maybe someone fun around to have a drink with / to do something?
What can we do on the islands - activity wise? Is it any help to speak (brazilian) Portuguese or is everyone speaking Kreol - can one onderstand that with BR PT? Where is it suitable to stay - hostels/hotels (not too expensive)
We are planning an Easter break on Cape Verde and are searching for a hotel near the beach where a mom and toddler could safely swim, waddle in the water and poke at the sand. From what we read so far popular beaches have either strong currents, winds or salt patches. We don't do water sports so the less wind there is, the better. All other things don't matter. Any advice is highly appreciated!
I'm traveling to Santiago in Feb for one week. Any suggestions where to stay? Any beaches that are not too windy?
I plan to travel to Sal for 2 nights as well. If anybody can give me some advice for example if there are any hostels or where to find people to team up with for island trips, that would be great!
I've had a look through the forum here, and have read the CV LP in preparation for our trip. We have 13 days, arriving in Praia and leaving from Sal. We love hiking and are most interested in Fogo and Santo Antao. Reading here, I see there can be issues with delays. We are ready to buy our flights to get between islands, but before we do, I was hoping to get some feedback on whether or not people thought we would have difficulty because of potential delays.
We were thinking of the following…
Hey can someone tell me the best way to get a guide for climbing Mt. Fogo and what price range I should expect?
Also, any tips for accomodation on Fogo?
We would like to stay at pensao pedro brabo, any experiences?
