vaccinations for travelling here
Being surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, Cape Verde is a water-lovers paradise. Take a guided Shark watching experience, or go Turtle watching at night, or enjoy adrenaline-fuelled fun on a buggy island adventure. More leisurely pursuits can be enjoyed, none better than a leisurely cruise around the island or a walk around the stunning Viveiro Botanical Garden and Zoo.
