The wind if measured from 10 am to 5pm every day, blows 11-25 knots 85-99% of the time (November - June) BUT: we have moderate La Nina conditions this month so most likely we may dip slightly below the 85% in December.Breakdown of those 11-25 knot days: 60% are in the 16-18 knot range, 5% in the 11-12 knot, 15% in the 13-15 knot and 20% in the 19-25 knot range).
Wind is there when we arrive in the morning at 8 am and is still there when it get's dark. I have not looked at the numbers within a day yet, but I get the impression that the afternoons are slightly better than the mornings.
Air temperature: 24 - 27C
Water temperature: 22 - 26C
A lot of food is imported so if you do not adapt and only stick to Europen food (peanut butter , gouda cheese and chocolate spread for on the bread - for the Dutch ) then it starts getting expensive.
Going out for a meal:
A meal at the equivalent of a fast food joint costs 1-2 euros (excl drink). A meal at a good value fr money restaurant (incl drink) costs 8 euros. A meal at a highly regarded restaurant costs 9-10 euros. A meal at a super exclusive place geared for the rich (there are few of those) can cost you much more
There is all sorts of accomodation but nothing super exclusive (no Marriott / Hilton) and nothing on a big scale (no mass tourism). A very basic (with toilet in the house ) place at Salamansa costs as little as 15 euros per night, a luxurious house at the beach shared with 6 costs 20 euros per night, a very nice appartment with breakfast with view of sea in Mindelo can cost 50 euros per night.
Please be careful: 99% of folks know Cape Verde as Sal or Boa Vista.maigueri wrote:I´ve been in Cabo verde (2 years ago) and i didn´t like at all.
The wind is so gusty that it scares.
I´ve my little paradise which is called Mancora (Peru)
Hot with boardshort temperature waters
-Surf AND Kite
Kite awesome. It´s so unknown place that no more than 5-7 kites in the beach.
Surf. Peru has the best left wawes in the world, even the longest!
-3rd world cheap
You can eat a full menu with 3 $!!!
-no need of rental vehicle once at location
If staying at Mancora, a car is not needed. If you want to other spots like lobitos or cabo blanco you can take, bus, or taxi (it´s so cheap that it worths)
Really good nightlife and quality restaurants at low price.
I MISS IT....
