Your in Sao Vicente why not go to the highest point of the island an get a great view of Mindelo and on a clear day Santo Antao??? This is a nice place to visit but don't be fooled it is nothing compared to Santo Antao. It takes about 20 to 25 minutes to get from the heart of the city to the top of 'Monte' by car. You don't need a guide. The coolest thing about Mt. Verde is that it has its own micro climate. So you will see green. That is a welcome change from the brown that is Sao Vicente. If you are in Mindelo for a day or more go up there and check it out.

It is a brilliant place to go but only at sunny weather, best time to try is around 2 pm. Do not be afraid of the dogs, they are friendly

The road from Mindelo to the summit of Monte Verde is cobbled and narrow, snaking its way up the mountainside. If you are afraid of heights the drop is a little intimidating especially when you see the next curve in the road ahead and the erosion that has taken place over time. However, the bumpy ride is well worth it and we were rewarded with breathtaking (and windy) views over Mindelo, the craggy volcanic peaks in the distance and the seascape in all directions. Somehow the ride back down the mountain seemed faster and safer, but then our insecurities had been left behind.
