My friend, my sister,
You can be a single mother and enjoy beautiful holiday. I went to the Isle of Sal in Cabo Verde, alone with the two children. We took a flight from Paris to Lisbon, then from Lisbon to Sal. The flight with Tap Portugal was comfortable.
I rented a flat, using Gesturim. It was 600 euros and 50 euros for water and electricity.
Being in the centre of Santa Maria was fantastic. Not only were we close to the mini markets, but we could buy fresh fruits every day in the street and had access by foot to the most beautiful beaches.
Cabo Verde can be quite windy sometimes. This is why you can see on the video a bar surrounded by transparent shields.
We went to a Fish spa with the kids. They loved it.
Please be careful if you buy the local gooseberry jam as we found pits in them.
I do recommend checking out the recycled objects shop. There were amazing gifts there and even paintings. I bought a dress for my daughter with bits of African fabric on the hem. There were beautiful objects everywhere, made from plastic bottles or cans.
Some people do shark fishing in Cabo Verde. Santa Maria is growing fast.
We did a fun thing on the last day with a jet ski. It is called Jumbo Dog.
I am happy to answer any question you have about travelling to Cabo Verde alone with your children.
