Practical information : Sightseeing Cape Verde


The schedules of the museums are quite variable; it is preferable to consult the site directly in order not to be surprised. For example, 9am to 12pm and 2pm to 6pm for the Museum of Archaeology. Stores open on weekdays and Saturdays, generally between 9am and 6pm. Banks (BAI, BCN) are accessible every morning between 8am and 3pm (Banco do Cabo Verde until 4pm). Post offices are open to the public on weekdays between 8am and 4:30pm, and on Saturday mornings, as are the agencies in Plateau and Achada Santo Antonio, in the center of Praia.

Budget & TipsBudget & Tips

Even if the museum capital is a bit meager in Cape Verde, a small visit will pleasantly complete your discovery of the country and will propel you into the culture, sometimes in its most original forms. To do this, you need to plan a small additional budget for the entrance fees. There are different prices: local, children, students and foreign visitors. The prices vary according to the importance of the collections: for example, it will cost you 100 CVE (Archaeological Museum of Praia) or 200 CVE (the charming Municipal Museum of Fogo) up to 500 CVE (Cesaria Evora Museum in Mindelo)... All you have to do is make your choice, whether you are a museum or not


Can we smoke in Cape Verde? Yes, (almost) everywhere, but it will be easier to obtain packs of cigarettes in the big cities. Also, heavy smokers will have to ensure their stock before going on trekking or in places that are a bit lost. You can find mainly the Marlboro Gold brand and the SG Gigante (of Portuguese origin launched in the islands in 1950) and more rarely, other international brands distributed in the bars of the big hotels in Sal or Santiago. In the village grocery stores, there are also local cigarettes sold by the unit (15 CVE), the most common being Falcões and Porto Grande

As far as legislation is concerned, smoking is prohibited in airports, public buses and banks. Finally, it is not necessary to remember that it is forbidden to smoke "any other substance". It is not uncommon to smell or see young people smoking a joint in full view of everyone, as the grass is imported or grown locally. Even if the apparent conditions of "a nice moment to share" are suitable, you are not safe from serious problems, as a foreigner
