Voice of Travelers to Cape Verde

Fantastic Country

Cape Verde is a fascinating nation full of scattered islands along the west coast of Africa. My visit to Cape Verde was through Amílcar Cabral International Airport. I booked my direct ticket from Stockholm Arlanda Airport. Despite all the reviews on the web about those volcanic islands and about their erosion stages, this country is one of a kind. It is the best in Africa, full of panoramic white beaches, and mist-strewn mountains.

Cape Verde is warm, sunny, and green all year round. It is spectacular. I have enjoyed my time in Santa Maria especially the outstanding water sports, beautiful resorts, and promotional activities. My next ticket will be booked again to Cape Verde.

Cape Verde is a stunning island chain

I can strongly recommend Cape Verde as a memorable place for taking beautiful photographs and family vacations, as it is one of West Africa’s awesome visionaries. My ticket to Cape Verde was from Birmingham Airport. Cape Verde is full of wonderful places to explore like Sala-Museu Amilcar Cabral, which is a large museum in Praia. A ticket to this museum opens up the doors to the dedication and memory of the freedom fighter Amilcar Cabral. The architecture design from the inside is altered and special, full of unique colors and paintings, enriched with a very familiar scent.

Cape Verde is not just a place to relax, but it is a memorable place that will leave huge marks in your heart. My kids have enjoyed this vacation more than any other one before. If you are in Europe, book your ticket to Cape Verde and although I know it is a long distance trip, it's worth it.

Cape Verde is a challenging place and a cheap ticket for a summer vacation

Boa Vista in Cape Verde was the destination of my trip. I’ve booked my ticket from Lisbon to Aristides Pereira International Airport. Boa Vista is one of the largest islands in Cape Verde, growing as a holiday destination. I’ve realized that the temperature in summer never drops below 24 degrees Celsius and that's why the locals describe the island as the new Caribbean. There are many things to do and discover on this island, as this island is full of beaches, blue tides, and many watersports activities to encounter. Truly, Cape Verde is an amazing country to visit and book your ticket to for your next summer vacation.
