“An Island not ready for tourism and the independent traveller”
Reviewed January 5, 2014 for a stay in December 2013
people found this review helpful

The appartment itself fulfilled by and large all promises. Nicely furnished, clean (besides one big cockroach in the kitchen...), except being in a very residential area and far from the beaches (15min walk to city center with major restaurants, 15-20mins walk to beaches) + having a close to 24hr non-stop barking dog at the neighbour's house.

Yet, Santa Maria and Sal appear not ready for tourism outside package hotels (and even inside 4-star package hotels, if you read carefully the reviews...). We expected an island somewhere in-between Europe and Africa, with major Portuguese influence. But that is not what we found. We were negatively surprised by
- huge number of stray dogs, barking 24hrs, day and night
- number of dead animals laying around (obviously stray dogs are still more or less systematically poisoned to take control of the number of animals)
- poor level of supplies in "supermarkets" (in five minimarkets did not find fresh bread, in just one semi-ripe tomatoes, in none fresh salad, barely any vegetables, just canned food of mediocre quality)
- even renting transportation was challenging, Quads not rentable for 24hr periods as parts may be stolen if parked at own residence as per rental agents
- crime is unfortunately a distinct reality, and not all areas of town are safe for single women to walk around at night
- overall, Tunesia and Egypt appear distinctly superior regarding tourism-readyness compared to CapVerde in our eyes

In summary, nice appartment, but in the wrong spot of the world.
