We are a Scottish couple living on boa vista, cape verde, we run an excursions company here.
It is a great place to come and quite cheap at start of December.
It is mainly all inclusive, some hotels better than others, but if you get out of hotels lots to see and do and great local restaurants and bars. You can also rent flats in the town centre by the week.
It is only a six hour flight but totally different to a Europe winter sun holiday as you get a totally different experience.
The island is so beautiful and the people so lovely with great food, music and culture, well worth a visit
Hope this helpful
