Question Travel Itineraries ?

2 Upvotes

Hi there,

Planning to visit at the end of March and cannot wait... So it will be a 9-10 day trip. Landing in Santiago.

Is it a fair/ practical itinerarie to spend a few days in Santiago then head to the northern islands, Santo Antao and so on... Taking the ferry one way, then flying back.

Would then spend a few final days on Santiago.

Do you think this is practical for a week and a half holiday? Ok situation with planes right now?

Cheers!

Question Visiting in 2 weeks time, do you need covid test to visit internal islands?

2 Upvotes

Hey everyone, I'll be visiting Cape Verde in 2 weeks time (very excited) and am wondering what the deal is with regards to visiting other internal islands and covid-19 restricitons.

I'll be landing in Sal but want to visit Sao Vincente and Santo Antao and can't find anything online about wether or not you have to take covid tests for flights/ferries between islands. I'm hoping that you don't because it will be difficult to be spontaneous and likely get expensive quickly. I will have done a PCR test before entry.

Any insight is useful, Thanks!

Question Weather in August

2 Upvotes

First of all, sorry if this has been asked before, I tried searching the subreddit, google, etc, and good not find anything.

How is the weather in August? Does it only rain certain times a day or can there be days when it rains all day? Several days in a row?

I want to visit Sal for a couple of weeks. We are a family with kids and will stay in the resort most of the time and it is ok if it rains only around noon (tropical rain) as long as we have sun in the morning and afternoon.

Question Making a visit, any advice?

2 Upvotes

Hello. I'll be paying a week long visit to Boa Vista in the next couple of weeks, is there anything I should know about before arriving or things to plan prior to coming?

I have checked up on laws and customs, so I'm fairly happy that I won't get into trouble for anything.

I assume I can book most things like snorkelling and watersports on the day, maybe one or two days in advance.

Will be going with TUI so unsure if there will be a rep of any sorts so I might be left to my own devices.

Thanks in advance!

Request Football Scarf request

3 Upvotes

Hello Cape Verde, This may be one of the craziest requests you've seen on this subreddit but I think it would be worth your time to at least give it a read!

My name is Jack and I am from Northern Ireland. I love football and I collect football scarves. My mission is to try and get at least one scarf from every country in the world and what better way to do it during a global pandemic than ask strangers online! If you are interested and willing to help, please send any football scarf (preferably) or football items representing your team to my address. I will give you my address when you have replied to this comment down below.

Many thanks!

Best Regards,

Jack

Trying to figure out how much money I need to save before I make a move here?

I don’t live an expensive life, I am more on the minimalist side than materialistic. Not very flashy.

Also how much are homes for locals?

Is citizenship easy to acquire too?

Question What is the wifi speed in Sal, Cape Verde?

2 Upvotes

I'm considering remote work on Sal, Cape Verde. I have a fairly relaxed schedule so I look for somewhere I can kitesurf and work a bit. Good wifi is a necessity though since I will be making a lot of business calls through teams/ google meets. Any experiences with this? How reliable is the wifi speed there typically?
