On this full day trip, you’ll get to know São Vicente through the eyes of a local. Our local guides will take you to the places that form the soul of the island. The guides will tell you a lot about life in Cape Verde and what “Morabeza” and “Sodade” mean. They will tell you fun facts about Cape Verdean culture, their own life stories and the history of the country. Cape Verdeans are an open population, proud of their country and happy to share it with travelers. Therefore, feel free to ask questions to your heart’s content!
