Bissau

Getting there & away

Bissau has the country’s only airport with regularly scheduled flights, with services by TACV Cabo Verde Airlines, Air Sénégal, TAP Air Portugal and Air Luxor.

You can get bush taxis and minibuses to just about anywhere in the country, as well as to Senegal, at the outdoor paragem, hidden about 500m south of Ave de 14 Novembro, about 5km outside town. It’s always best to get transport by 8am.

To get to the paragem, take a toca-toca (minibus) from the Mercado de Bandim (CFA100) or a taxi (about CFA1000) from anywhere in town.
