      I am looking to book up to go to Sal in early September. However i have read mixed reviews regarding the weather. although it says it will be hot it is also saying it will rain. Has anyone been there in september or knows if i will encounter a week of rain and thick clouds or if it will be sunny and i should be fine? I dont want to spend a week in my hotel room due to bad weather.

    • Live music in Mindelo?

      Cape Verde Jan 6, 2015 at 8:53 AM

      We are going to Cape Verde in february or march and I´m wondering if it´s a good idea to go for the carnival in Mindelo? Has anyone here been there?
      We are not so interested in samba-dancers in the streets, but would love to hear the morna and other cap verdian music styles. Mindelo is said to be the musical centre of CV, but can we expect to find live music there anytime? Is it best during the carnival or is it better to avoid these days?
      Thanks for any response!

      I am going to Santa Maria and staying at Oasis Salinas Sal next week with my Partner and have heard things like sun tan lotion/toiletries etc are expensive. Can anyone give me a rough idea of cost of these things and also cigarettes? Would it be best to bring them with me?
      Also, I have heard it is very windy, but is it warm and dry?
      Any comments on the all inclusive deal at the hotel?

      My wife and I, both in our early 60’s, are thinking of visiting Cape Verde for 7 nights in mid November of this year. We are looking to spend a few hours each day on the beach though also enjoy hiring an open top 4 wheel drive vehicle for touring and exploring the more remote parts daily. Any advice as to which island, beach front hotel, good restaurants and local vehicle rental company etc. would be much appreciated, no expense spared...!! Many thanks.

    • Hotel Morabazza or new Melia Dunas Resort?

      Cape Verde Jul 30, 2014 at 10:04 AM

      Hi, we are thinking of travelling to Cape Verde next June and I was concerned about the rough sea. I had heard it was calmer around Santa Maria area, near the hotel Morabezza, but have noticed that the new Melia Dunas will be open and it states it is also close to Santa Maria. I wondered if anyone could advise on my dilemma as to which hotel to choose and what the sea should generally be like around them.
      Any info would be greatly appreciated as I have never travelled to Cape Verde before. I knew someone who went to Boa Vista, they said it was calmer around the Karramboa Hotel, but there wasn't a great lot to do as far as getting off resort .
