Top tip – Go self catering on your stay in Puerto Rico, you will really want to experience all it has to offer and being so close to other magnificent areas it allows you to go off exploring not conscious of your next meal at your accommodation.

Cape Verde

If it’s more of a luxury retreat you are after, then Cape Verde is a must. One of the main reasons, apart from the beaches and weather is probably that it’s relatively undiscovered.  Once you’re there, it feels that it’s really a retreat that you are on without bustling tourists and fish & chips on the menu at every restaurant.  Island hopping is a must do for tourists looking to see a little more & experience Cape Verde’s active side.

Top tip – If you like walking and being more active on your holiday, then Santo Antão is the place to visit!
