Videos by some Spanish-speaking people



This area seems to be going though regeneration:



Tarrafal:This is the town where the Portuguese facist government had a concentration camp for political prisioners

Several Web sources quote 80 km/h as the general speed limit on highways, but apparently on new stretches in good state they allow 90 now? Any higher limits?

I can`t give you ablsolute certain, but i think that if they consider that road as a "car only road", the maximum speed can be 100 Km/h.


I found this law ( http://www.who.int/violence_injury_p..._verde_por.pdf » in portuguese) from 2007, that estabilsh the speed limits in Cape Verde.

Some roads of São Vicente island

Main road from Mindelo to Baia das Gatas. Stone roads like these are typical for whole Cabo Verde.

Wow that is beautiful! It's an unknown country, even though the Netherlands has a sizeable Capeverdean minority (some 31,000 people).

Nice roads and very little road traffic.

However, I heard that there is a crime problem. So I guess it's as unsafe and as dangerous as say Pakistan or Nigeria?

According to this list, the crime rate in Cape Verde is similar to the one in your country.

It felt safe as on small European islands. The capital, Praia, has some 120 000 people and it felt at night definitely safer than Estonian capital. All the other places except Praia and Mindelo are really small towns with no crime rate at all. I have read that life on beach islands of Sal and Boa Vista may be little different with combination of too many drunk tourists with too much money, higher unemployment rate on lower tourism seasons, lots of immigrants from Western Africa etc. It's probably same at popular beach destinations at Europe.
You definitely can't compare Cabo Verde to Nigeria or Pakistan

I do not have that idea. What passes on the portuguese media and by what my former university colleagues and the portuguese tourists that go there say is more less what vatse said!!

Roads of Santo Antão island

Coastal road from Porto Novo to Ribeira Grande.
It's currently the main road connecting ferry port at Porto Novo with towns and villages of northern coast.


SA 1 by vatse, on Flickr

Beginning of the road near Porto Novo is with typical stone cover

But it soon turns to asphalt as most of current road between Porto Novo and Janela was opened at 2009.
