Boa Vista Relax and more
Boa Vista island offers a landscape still wild and pristine.
No adjective are enough to describe the places and the feeling you get treading step by step and discovering this land. There’s a whole region of nothing but desert and stones, but let your senses flow and you will find your mind and body surrounded by scents, smells, colors, sounds and unique vibrations. Once arrived here you will be influenced for sure, and getting away from the daily stress, you’ll discover Nature and yourself again.
The locals have even invented the phrase “no stress” for us foreigners chronically harassed, hurried, from punctuality and consumerism. No stress, you’ll hear this phrase often, sometimes as an occasion to sell you some souvenirs, but the truth is that Boa Vista will contaminate you for real with its simplicity and poverty. The comparison with our stressed lives will surely shock you. No greed, no desire of richness or wealth, with a life of poverty these persons still manage to laugh and live their life in completely serenity, so much in fact, that this will extend to you for sure.
Boa Vista is Good Cousine
A typical Cape Verdean dish is the Cachupa present in 2 varieties, the Rica, a soup, and the Guisada, dried in a pan and added with a fish or an omelette.
The abundance of fish in Boa Vista is a value to the island’s market: tuna, greenhouse, dorado, garopa, lobster and many others.
With these various fish species, restaurants and taverns have plenty of really succulent and eye-catching dishes for you, waiting to being devoured.
Boa Vista is Fun
Playing sports and having fun is really easy in Boa Vista: Kite to fly over the waves or Diving to see beautiful fish, Hiking, Biking or Horseback Riding to enjoy a landscape still wild and pristine. Why not hire a quad bike and enjoy a day in the nature? You will discover the raw beauty and culture of this wonderful island.
