The best way to move around any travel destination is to get a local guide and local driver. Additionally with the national guide plus about 10 more people we could absolutely focus on the most exciting places in Cape Verde. Fortunately we were able to walk in our pace. People are very friendly out there, but in order to travel alone, it is advisable to gather all the required information about the available accommodation facilities.
While looking around on the internet for a description of places to be visited one can find very useful information from people who were already trekking and hiking there. Sample Google search for Santo Antao trekking / hiking could be useful. Also looking at the Google maps can reveal some interesting places to stay.
Below we are presenting some more artistic view on the country attractions. And there are also professional high resolution photos available if you need to buy legal images from Cape Verde.
