Santa Cruz Vacation Packages
Santa Cruz is situated about 14 miles (23 kilometers) north of Praia, the national capital.
When it comes to getting the best from your time here, it's worth remembering that Santa Cruz is just the beginning; Cape Verde features an abundance of natural and man-made attractions. To explore the area in even greater depth, head 14 miles (23 kilometers) where you'll find Praia. Here you can check out the Estadio da Varzea and Fort Real de Sao Filipe.
For a budget outdoors activity that everyone will like, take the time to check out the region's fascinating open-air markets.
When you hear the call of the wild, do as the locals do and spend the day mountain climbing or hiking.
A great way to reveal the true nature of a place is by exploring the cafés and restaurants in the area. Try some dishes and strike up a conversation with people who live in the area. Two of the region's favourite ingredients are cabbage and tuna. Catchupa (slow boiled stew) and carne gizado (stewed meat and vegetables) are commonly enjoyed by travelers and residents alike. To end your local dining experience, try papauya candy (sweet). What about trying a local spirit? Ponche (cocktail with brogue, lime and molasses) is a good option.
As the sun sets on your time in Santa Cruz, pack your traveling bag and bid Santa Cruz "Adeus" (farewell).
