Things to know about Cape Verde
In Mindelo there is a state hospital with relatively well-equipped departments as well as several modern private clinics with excellent doctors (for example the Medicentro). Basically, we recommend that you insure all risks according to your own assessment. We strongly recommend that you take out travel health insurance.
The local currency is Cape Verde escudos, which can only be exchanged in Cape Verde.
Recommended travel currencies are euros or US dollars in cash or as traveller’s cheques. Credit cards are only accepted in some hotels or are very time-consuming to cash in banks.
Exchange rate 2022 : 1 EURO = 110 Escudos
