The tourism industry in Cape Verde has enjoyed steady growth for the past two decades as more and more people start to see the great attractions it has to offer. British tourists have taken to the country more quickly than other nations, accounting for the largest percentage of visitors each year. There are a number of reasons for this, including the relatively short flight time to arrive here.
The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) released its latest figures recently and they show just how popular Cape Verde has become for British holidaymakers. In January and February 2016, 52,308 travellers flew from British airports to the country. This was up an impressive 42% over the figure for the same period in 2015.
Cape Verde is the third most popular destination in terms of growing tourist numbers in the world, behind only Columbia and Serbia. The South American country attracted almost double the number of tourists they did in January/February 2015. Serbia was marginally ahead with 48% growth. Only countries with over 10,000 visitors were included in the analysis.
The beginning of the year is a great time for British tourists to book an all inclusive Cape Verde trip. They can escape the cold weather and short days, trading them in for sun and much higher temperatures. Conditions are excellent in the country from January to July with only a small likelihood of rain in each month. A winter beach holiday with summery temperatures can be just what people need to start their year.
