BOX TRAVEL  PROFILE
Cabo Verde has four international airports on the islands of Sal, Santiago, Boa Vista and São Vicente, which offer daily and direct flights to the African, American and European continents, and also has aerodromes on the islands of Maio, Fogo and São Nicolau In terms of port infrastructure, Cabo Verde has nine ports, three of which are deep-water. To this is added a modern communications system; a modern financial system, investor-friendly legislation, and confirmed macroeconomic stability. Cape Verde is therefore a stable and safe tourist destination, and is also endowed with all the conditions to welcome and guarantee the success of national and international entrepreneurs.
The Cabo Verde landscape is very diverse and full of contrasts. With an attractive blend of landscapes featuring imposing basalt mountains, expansive fine sand beaches, undulating dune deserts, enchanting oases, a vast blue and crystalline sea, verdant valleys, extensive plains fading the horizon, an average 25ºC throughout the year, radiant sun during practically the whole year and a wide fraternal embrace of an entire nation always ready to welcome anyone who visits the Country, Cape Verde presents itself as an authentic paradise in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.

Cape Verde received more than 716 thousand tourists and recorded more than 4.5 million overnight stays in 2017, an increase of 11.2% and 12.3%, respectively, compared to the year 2016. Tourism currently accounts for 22% of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of Cabo Verde and it is expected that the country will soon surpass one million tourists a year.

The islands of Cabo Verde have a privileged geographic location, positioned between 3 continents: Africa, Europe, and America. Located 320 nautical miles off the coast of Senegal and a mere 3-hour flight from both the American continent and the European continent, Cabo Verde, as a tourist destination, has been affirming itself and diversifying its tourism offer.
For all these reasons, Cabo Verde is an ideal destination for vacations, sun and beach leisure, walks in harmony with nature, event and business tourism and a distinct site to taste unique natural flavours.
The friendly and fraternal vocation of its population, the landscape diversity of its ten wonderful Islands make Cape Verde a Country of ten destinations, providing captivating and hospitable stays, for eternal memories.
