The LP for Cape Verde seems to be just a section in the West Africa edition. Has anyone used a better, more comprehensive guide or is the LP good enough ? Any recommendations for which to buy ?
I will be traveling to Cabo Verde in a week and I will be in Santo Antão for a short time (probably 1 day and a half - arriving in the morning ferry and leaving next day in the afternoon ferry). I wanted to do some hiking, although I know I might only have time for 1 hike.
Do you have any advice on how to make the best of Santo Antao in this limited time?
I understand that the most popular hikes are Cova-Vale do Paul and Ponta do Sol-Fontainhas/Cruzinha, but it might be hard for…
Hello - does anyone have any tips regards inter-island flights - in December.
I can't seem to find any way online of booking with TACV whilst Binter don't seem to have any flights during December.
I will have 3 to 4 weeks holiday from September 15th onwards.
And I am totally unsure where to go during that time. I consider returning to countries I have previously visited and go to Laos and Thailand or a part of Indonesia (Sulawesi or Sumatra). What goes for that is food and culture and nature and "easiness" to travel around. Also the possibility to add some days on the beach at the end to relax before returning home.
Another destination I am considering is Mexico (focusing…
Over the last couple of weeks of August, my family and I are travelling to Mindelo, San Antao, Boa Vista, and Santiago. I'm not entirely clear on the exact destinations there yet (although suggestions are welcome), but I did want to know how far in advance we'd need to book accomodation.
Aside: I live in Spain, where the best value places often fill up months in advance, and where no one will even give you the time of day if you try to make last-minute reservations in August.
Please can someone tell me how it is with the mosquitoes in Cape Verde, particularly Boa Vista and Santa Maria. I know there has been an outbreak of Malaria in Praia some months ago. Which months are worse for mosquitoes, if any? I am considering a trip there somewhere between October and February.
Hi can anyone recommend a local fisherman for daily rental out out of Palmeira or Santa Maria and also a good taxi service for land based fishing .I will have my own fishing gear and there will be two adult fishermen based in Santa Maria from may 16th
Hello, this Friday afternoon in Praia, Cabo Verde, I would like to get a SIM card. I need it for phone calls + texts, but I also want a big amount of data (for Google Maps etc).
Do you recommend a certain company and a certain store? I don't need the very cheapest offer, but I am happy to pay more if I get good, reliable connections and service from staff. After Praia, I hope to use the SIM card on Brava, Fogo, Santo Antao and in Mindelo.
If possible, I would go to a store of the mobile…
Hello, this weekend I will be in Praia, Cabo Verde. I do like live music a lot, especially if it's subtle, artistic and undistorted (less if it's loud, percussion-oriented and pretentious). I have a faible for jazz, salsa and slightly complex and tricky stuff, rather acoustic. I enjoy small, unpushy venues where I can have reasonable food and drink while listening, and I do like semi-open air settings.
Do you recommend certain music places to visit this Fri, Sat and/or Sunday?
I am aware of…
- As a EU citizen, can i get a visa on a arrival for Cabo Verde at a local airport there?
- Is it ok for authorities and airline if I arrive without a return ticket in my hand?
According to an CV embassy website, visa on arrival is possible, but they won't guarantee it, claiming the airline might not take me on without a pre-arranged visa. (I am aware it might depend on an individual check-in clerk – rather than on clear regulations – wether or not the airline accepts me without…
