New Year means new travel plans. We know all too well how stressful planning a trip can be. Between scheduling flights, making hotel arrangements, and organizing excursions, planning a holiday in 2023 is not for the faint of hearts, especially when you have never been to your chosen destination. But don’t worry; we’ve got you. Before you pack your bags, here are five mistakes to avoid during your upcoming Cape Verde holiday.
Never Leaving Your Hotel Room
We know. That all-inclusive hotel package presents great benefits and exclusive amenities that you never have to step foot off the resort grounds. However, one aspect that Cape Verde never fails at is delivering an epic adventure. This archipelago has much to offer, including turtle walks, ATV & UTV off-roading, beachside horseback rides, and diving excursions. And that’s just a few of the numerous activities we offer here at No Limits Adventure! Waiting just outside your resort is the magic of Cape Verde.
Not Taking Advantage Of The Off-Season
We get it; what better way to escape the bitter cold of wintertime than with a tropical island holiday? However, don’t miss out on some of the nuances of Cape Verde during its non-peak seasons. During this time, crowd levels are low, giving tourists an elite feel of a private island. The off-season is also the best time to book a holiday if you are looking for more affordable lodging prices because demand is low. So, if you are willing to branch out on the time you usually would abandon your everyday life, we recommend looking into traveling during non-peak seasons.
Skipping Out On The Island Culture
One of the many things that make Cape Verde so special is the immersive island culture that is unlike any destination in the world. Walk the city’s streets and take in vibrant murals and the sounds of native island music inspired by African and Latin culture. The towns also have some delectable cuisines that will excite your taste buds. Skipping out on Cape Verdes culture’s animated nature would be a massive disservice to yourself and your holiday experience.
Not Having Enough Device Storage
Many people overlook the importance of having enough storage space on their electronic devices. Nothing is worse than trying to capture a memory on your phone or digital camera only to have that annoying notification pop up telling you that you are out of storage. Cape Verde is home to gorgeous scenery around every corner that’ll you’ll want to take pictures and photos during your entire stay. Be sure to make sure you have ample storage space on your electronic device before your holiday.
Having an overly ambitious itinerary
Once you set foot on the island, with so much it has to offer, it is very easy to want to stuff your day’s itinerary with a week’s worth of activities. However, even if you had all the time in the world, it is unrealistic to expect to check off every box. And that is okay. Instead, we challenge you to channel the spirit of the island and take it easy. While you may not know which excursions to invest your time into, we are here to help. We have all of our activities listed on our website to help you prioritize which ones are the most important for you and your travel party.
