    Number of tourists in Cape Verde in 2012 surpasses archipelago’s population

    The number of tourists that stayed in Cape Verde’s hotels in 2012 totalled 534,000 and for the first time exceeded the total population of the archipelago, which is estimated at 497,000 people, the National Statistics Institute (INE) said Tuesday in Praia.

    INE said that the number of guests in 2012 rose by 12.3 percent against 2011 and the United Kingdom was the source of the largest number of tourists.

    UK visitors, which accounted for 21.6 percent of the total, were followed by those from France (13 percent), Portugal (12.7 percent) and Germany (12.6 percent).

    British tourists were also those that stayed in Cape Verde for longest, with an average stay of 9.1 nights.

    Boavista was the island that was visited most, accounting for 38.1 percent of stays at hotel units.
