Praia Vacation Packages
Why don't you spend some time exploring Praia? Start with a trip to the the Estadio da Varzea.
It's little wonder Praia is a perennial favourite with vacationers from across the globe; Cape Verde is an Aladdin's Cave of interesting cities, attractions and landscapes. If you're keen to explore more of the region, you'll find Maio, 30 miles (48 kilometers) to the southwest, and Fogo 60 miles (97 kilometers) to the east.
When you ask the locals their sightseeing recommendations, more often than not they'll point to Cape Verde's open-air markets.
A fun way to enjoy the wild landscapes around Praia is to sign up for a hiking or mountain climbing tour.
For lots of people, visiting new places is as much about cuisines as it is about seeing the sights, so take the time to check out the food for which this area is known. You'll find that cabbage and tuna are favorite components in local dishes. No trip to Cape Verde would be satisfying without ordering a catchupa (slow boiled stew) and carne gizado (stewed meat and vegetables). And when it is time for the end of you meal, you can't go past papauya candy (sweet). To complete your dinner as many locals would, get a little Ponche (cocktail with brogue, lime and molasses) and take it easy after a wonderful day of sightseeing.
When your time is up in this unique place, say farewell the way Cape Verdean's do, with a hearty "Adeus."
