The Cape Verde Islands are very different and that is their appeal. But it does mean that when staying and travelling there, nothing is quite as you might think! Even if you have travelled all round the world, the unique climate and mix of cultures and government influences mean that you could be in for a few surprises. This guide should be read before you set out.

We travel very regularly to the islands as we have been organising travel to the Cape Verde Islands since 2005. As property owners (we were the first British to purchase a villa on Sal), this enables us to live there part of the year and be part of the local community and mix with people who live and work on the island, as well as meet many Cape Verdeans who have migrated there from other islands.Clients are very helpful at giving feedback on return from their holidays, and we rely heavily on this to keep up to date particularly on restaurants and accommodation. Whenever people have come back and said they were surprised by something good or bad, we have added a section to try to eliminate surprises for future travellers. We are the people that others who write guides come to for information!
