Portuguese colonial officers in the 17th and 18th centuries perceived the West African slave-trading hub of Cabo Verde as a dead-end posting – often literally because of its propensity for drought and tropical disease. Today the wind-pummelled, volcanic archipelago 600km off the coast of Senegal is a growing tourist spot, offering dramatic landscapes for hikers, along with a vibrant music scene and year-round sunshine. In the past three years, the number of tourists going to Cabo Verde – also known as Cape Verde – has beaten the rate for Africa’s $34-billion market, growing on average each year by nearly 20 percent, according to a UN report. National Geographic has called it a “must see” destination for this year. Here are tips about getting the most out of a trip to Cabo Verde from Reuters, whose 2 600 journalists in all parts of the world offer visitors the best local insights.
