About Cape Verde
This archipelago in the central Atlantic Ocean, sits about 350 miles off the coast of west Africa
From the constant thrum of the bars and clubs in Mindelo, the country's capital, to the quaint local villages, towering mountains and long stretches of white sandy beaches, Cape Verde (or Cabo Verde) is a veritable paradise
With temperatures ranging from 26Â°C in February to 30Â°C in August, September and October, it's always a good time of year to visit, but most of the limited rainfall the country receives comes in September, so if you're looking to avoid the rain, June, July and August are you best bet (though the rain tends to come down in short, heavy spells, so its not likely to spoil things if you do get caught).
Their official language is Portuguese and the local currency is the Cape Verdean escudo (CVE).
With 4 international airports and 3 domestic, situated throughout the 10 islands, there are plenty of options when it comes to planning your trip. Amílcar Cabral International Airport (SID) is the main one with Nelson Mandela International (RAI), Aristides Pereira International (BVC) and Cesšria Ã‰vora (VXE) offering alternative arrival destinations.
With its local hospitality, constant musical thrum, glorious scenery and delectable cuisine, not to mention its climate and stunning beaches, there's really no reason not to book your next trip now.

A travel to the past in Cidade Velha, Cape Verde
27th October 2022 by Two Monkey's Travel
After doing a full day Santiago Island Tour plus a workshop, I had a second day well spent! I’m still in Santiago in Cape Verde, and this time, I explored the highlights of Cidade Velha, the country’s former capital. This memorable day was fun and exciting, all thanks to Bu Country Tours and Maria – my guide and my photographer that day! Haha. Guys, she takes good pictures! Alright, without further ado, here’s how I spent my second day in Cidade Velha with Bu Country Tours....
