Santa Maria Vacation Packages

From Santa Maria, the city of Praia sits 120 miles to the south.

Dip your toes in the crisp water at one of the nearby beaches. Make the journey to Praia de Santa Monica, 40 miles to the south, or Praia da Chave, 35 miles to the south.

Don't forget to visit Santa Maria Town Square. Also think about Praia de Santa Maria.

To get out and about, go 5 miles to Murdeira. Here you can visit Pedra do Lume and Palmeira.

Boa Ventura is 35 miles to the south of Santa Maria. This regional center is where you can find Fundo das Figueiras, Cabeço das Tarafes and Rabil. João Galego and Curral Velho are some other popular places if you've got time to burn.

If a perfect vacation for you doesn't just involve relaxation, you might like to try mountain climbing or hiking.

Despite the fact that you can't wear pajamas, shore fishing and sunbathing are peaceful ways to relax and enjoy some outdoor activities in Cape Verde.

When the mercury rises, take the lead of the locals and head down to the water for an exciting day of swimming or snorkeling.

For an outdoor activity that will entertain the whole family, head out to the region's open-air markets.

The food here has its own sensory stamp, so ensure you delve into the area's menus.

Of the many ingredients you'll uncover during your dining expedition, cabbage and tuna are among the most prized.

Two staple dishes worth trying are catchupa (slow boiled stew) and carne gizado (stewed meat and vegetables).

Save some room for some papauya candy (sweet) after you have finished your meal. This divine dessert is sure to go down a treat.

Those who enjoy a stiff drink every now and then should certainly order some Ponche (cocktail with brogue, lime and molasses), a well-known spirit.

Engage with the local inhabitants by familiarizing yourself with a few key phrases in Portuguese. Olá translates to hello. You should also work on pronouncing Boa noite (good night).

The 5th of July is the day each year when the whole country will commemorate Independence Day. There's sure to be plenty of festivities going on if you are vacationing at that time.

At the end of your time in Santa Maria, pack your things, spend your final escudos on last-minute mementos and say a heartfelt "Adeus" to this fantastic part of the world.

For catching your flight homeward, head toward the closest airport. You'll find it 9 miles to the north.
