Finally I booked myself and family on a week trip to Sal in february ( 16-23). My tourist agency does not provide much of a sight seeing on Cv. And I wanted to go to Sao Vincente. What is the best way to travel there? Is there a local agancy on Sal specializing in tours? You guys also wrote about carnival in Mindelo? Any more details?
in a holiday periode of merely one week, it is not advisable to make a trip to an other island. On Sal you can enjoy beautiful beaches, and some small trips e.g. to the “salinas” or to the “blue eye” of Buracona. To go by plane to S. Vicente you should book as soon as possible. But what do you expect there? S. Vicente is not a touristic island and the most interesting site is the town of Mindelo. 😐 I’d give you the advice to enjoy your holidays on Sal and to return to Cape Verde after having made a plan at home, which islands should be seen.
