Mindelo Vacation Packages

Approximately 170 miles northwest of Praia, the national capital, is where you'll find Mindelo.

Make sure you stop at either Presidential Palace or Mindelo Marina, or both!

Head over to Sao Vicente to experience Sao Pedro Beach and Laginha Beach. It's about 4 miles out of Mindelo and is well worth the trip. For those who want more, head to Paul, where you can check out Lombinho and Chã João Vaz, only 15 miles from Mindelo.

If you happen to hear the call of the great outdoors, do as the locals do and spend a few hours mountain climbing or hiking.

If the weather's nice, try a bit of shore fishing or sunbathing.

When the sun's shining and you're looking to cool off, there's nothing better than water-based activities. Go swimming and snorkeling in the greater Mindelo area.

Don't miss the opportunity to satisfy your tastebuds with a tour of the region's traditional foods.

Be sure to ask the locals about the ingredients characteristic of the district, like cabbage and tuna.

Don't pack your bags for home without sampling catchupa (slow boiled stew) and carne gizado (stewed meat and vegetables).

When the main course dishes are cleared away, allow yourself to try the mouthwatering papauya candy (sweet).

You'll probably see many local people drinking Ponche (cocktail with brogue, lime and molasses), a famous alcoholic beverage here.

In your preparations to embark on your adventures, do what the more seasoned wanderers do and learn to use a selection of relevant lines in the local language. "Você é bem-vindo" translates to "You're welcome". Or, try pronouncing "Queres dançar comigo? " (Would you like to dance with me?).

Visitors enjoying this destination are always pleased to know that the 5th of July is Independence Day, a national celebration.

At the conclusion of your stay, pack your baggage and bid Mindelo "Adeus."

If you're looking for the closest airport to Mindelo, it's 6 miles to the southwest.
