Package Itinerary


Explore Santiago's highlights on this full-day tour. Savor a typical breakfast with a local family, visit the Assomada Market, and drive through the Serra Malagueta. Enjoy the most beautiful beach on the island, Tarrafal, and meet Cape Verde's only tribe.


Get picked up at your accommodation, then depart toward the interior of the island. Make your first stop at Mrs. Luisa's house. There, sample cuscuz (a traditional cake made from corn flour) and fidjós (fried banana mixed with wheat), the typical breakfast for Cape Verdean families. After breakfast, continue to the city of Assomada. Visit its famous market and admire the vibrant colors of the local fruits and vegetables. Move on to the Serra Malagueta natural park and marvel at the incredible views from 1000 meters (3,280 feet) above sea level. Next, discover Santiago's most beautiful beach at Tarrafal, known for its white sand and crystal-clear waters. Take a break for lunch (at your own expense), then return along the east coast of the island. Visit the Rabelados religious community, the only community that still lives in thatched houses and preserves the oldest customs and beliefs of Cape Verde. Have the opportunity to buy paintings that depict the history of this community, ceramic tableware made by local artisans and various souvenirs. The tour concludes with drop-off at your accommodation.
