Santa Maria Vacation Packages

The well-known city of Praia sits 120 miles south of Santa Maria.

Make sure you visit Shark Bay Beach, which is nearby.

Go 8 miles north to arrive at Sal, where you can check out Praia de Santa Maria and Santa Maria Town Square.

You need to head 35 miles south from Santa Maria to reach Boa Vista. There's lots to see and do there, including Praia da Chave, Praia de Santa Monica and Morro Negro Lighthouse. Praia de Cruz and Santa Maria are some of the other points of interest here that are waiting for you.

The region offers some fun ways to enjoy its unique landscapes. Those who like to get up and get moving might want to go mountain climbing and hiking.

Keen to unwind for a while? Spend an afternoon shore fishing, sunbathing or enjoying any of the other outdoor activities the region has to offer tourists.

Head for the water when you're in Cape Verde. Swimming and snorkeling are just two of the most popular ways to have a blast in the water.

What is time away in a new place without digging your teeth into some good food? Cape Verde is a brilliant spot to satisfy your cravings!

Cabbage and tuna are just two well-known ingredients in the region.

Catchupa (slow boiled stew) and carne gizado (stewed meat and vegetables) are a couple of regional favorites worth trying.

This area is also the perfect place to enjoy papauya candy (sweet).

If you like strong alcoholic drinks, scan the menu for Ponche (cocktail with brogue, lime and molasses) and make a toast to the many wonders of Cape Verde.

Conversing in the local language is an excellent tool to use to bridge the cultural divide, so learn to understand some everyday Portuguese expressions and greetings before you depart. "Você é bem-vindo" means "You're welcome". "Would you like to dance with me?" is another good one to have in your arsenal, so practice pronouncing "Queres dançar comigo? ".

Vacationing in Cape Verde on the 5th of July offers you a bird's-eye view of Independence Day.

When it is time to depart Santa Maria, pack up your bags, spend your remaining escudos on mementos for the folks at home, and say "Adeus" to this wonderful spot.

The nearest airport, Amilcar Cabral International Airport, is 9 miles to the north of Santa Maria.
