Hi we are off to Santa Maria at the start of September and I am a bit concerned about the weather what can I expect it to be like from what I am reading it is the rainy season, is there a lot of rain? in September?
welcome to the Cape Verde Forum. Even if it´s the “rainy season”, usually you will have max 2-4 days of rain over the whole month on Sal island. If you read about Cape Verde weather you will find that over the whole year aprox. 15 days of rain… so Cape Verde is very good for sun lovers 🙂
if you have a look on the surface of Sal, you can easily see, that there is nearly no rain at all during the entire year. If there is some rain, then it is a happy event for all. 🙂 But it is really very seldom and doesn’t take a very long time. Also the temperature remains hot.
So don’t be scared and enjoy your stay on this dry island. 😀
