A chain of islands, Cape Verde is located off the northwest coast of Africa. Cape Verde resorts look like a postcard and offer beaches that you could only dream of. From its tropical climate to its mouthwatering cuisine, it's the perfect vacation getaway, especially during the winter months.
With a blend of both African and Portuguese influences, Cape Verde is a unique and adventurous country. Hotels in Praia are the perfect starting point for your enchanting holiday. Snap a few photographs of the lighthouse of Maria, as well as the beautiful views of the ocean. Being the capital as well as the country's largest city, it offers the Praia Ethnographic Museum. It's a great way to learn more about Cape Verde while seeing some fascinating artifacts that have been brought up from shipwrecks. To the west of Praia, you'll be able to visit Cidade Velha meaning "old city." Named a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this city is home to Fort Real de São Filipe, which overlooks the town. Constructed in 1590, it's an incredible piece of historical architecture. For those who enjoy hiking, Santiago Island, the largest of the islands, is full of green hillsides and jungles. Snorkelers and divers will be in heaven, as there are plenty of 16th-century shipwrecks scattered across the sea floor. For experienced divers or anyone looking for more adventure, head to Boa Vista in a small plane to enjoy marine turtles, sand dunes, and traditional music.
A flight to Santiago Island will be the beginning of a remarkable, one-of-a-kind experience. Hotels in Cape Verde are the perfect place to call home as you explore this unique and highly appealing country.
