Getting there & away
Flights between São Tomé and Príncipe on Air São Tomé (221160) run three times weekly and cost around US$180; it’s necessary to reserve early. Be sure to check ahead of time that domestic flights are currently operating.
A cargo ship makes the trip every few days, but it is not recommended. If you’re intent on doing the hot, day-long journey, head to the port for current times and cost.
