Cape Verde - Getting there & away
Flying is the only realistic option for getting to and from Cape Verde. There are infrequent sea services, but they'll probably end up costing as much as a plane ticket. There are regular flights from Lisbon and less frequent flights from other European centres.
Getting around Cape Verde
There's a network of expensive internal flights between the islands; between Praia, Mindelo and Sal there are flights at least once daily.
Travel on the islands is by bus or truck. Taxis are generally very expensive and there aren't many of them. You can rent cars on São Tiago, Fogo, São Vicente and Sal. You'll need an international driver's licence; driving is on the right.
