Stop At: Espargos, Espargos, Ilha do Sal

Located near both the airport and the ferry dock, Espargos – the island's capital – is a small, dusty workaday town that feels more like the real Cabo Verde than touristy Santa Maria. Its shady main square, the new market, low-key bars and laidback street life give Espargos some charme and make the city the best place to try some Creole Cooking or catch some genuine traditional music as well as understanding the cape verdean life style . Further to lunch we will also get to Monte Curral the highest point in town (109 meters) where you will have an amazing aerial view of the town, airport and coastal areas close by.

In Salinas you will have time to float in medicinal thermal waters and take a mud bath as well as enjoy the quiteness and imponence of this piece of nature that marvels everyone that visits it.
