Welcome to vista verde tours – the travel expert of Cape Verde
 

We are very proud that we are still alive despite this particular time.
More than ever it is essential for the country and the people to pursue the philosophy of sustainable tourism together with our many local service partners on spot.

Finally, we can see a light at the end of the tunnel for 2022.
The first travellers have visited the islands during the season 2021-2022. We get a lot of nice feedbacks from our guests. Thank you very much for that!
Together with our local service partners, we are now focusing on the implementation of the essential hygienic standards. Also, from the official site a lot of effort has been done so far for the vaccination rate.
Our main concern is surely to help the local people to go back to their work on spot t and that our guests can forget all about Corona – at least for a moment - and enjoy their time on the beautiful archipelago.

I hope to see you soon!
Warm regards
Heike Alter
Mindelo, summer 2022

MAIO - THE WHITE PEARL

The white paradise is an oasis for beach lovers and those seeking peace and quiet

The charming island of Maio (en: "May") covers 269 km² and is geologically the oldest of the Cape Verdean Islands. With its quaint fishing villages, lonely desert-like areas and miles of white sandy beaches, the hospitality of its 6,000 inhabitants makes for a pleasant and tranquil stay on Maio.

In the capital Vila de Maio (also called Porto Inglês) with its pretty colonial buildings, it seems that time has stood still. At Praia de Galeão sea turtles lay their eggs during the summer season. Today there are mainly small pensions and apartments where you can relax and get away from everything. As a result of reforestation projects, this flat land has some acacia forests in the northern part of the island.

Due to reforestation, soil and water conservation, as well as the establishment of better infrastructure, everyday life has been improved dramatically. A special feature: Acacia trees can go without water for many years. The acacia forests distinguish Maio from the other two desert islands Sal and Boa Vista.
