The Insider's Guide to Sal, Cape Verde

The most up-to-date Travel Guide to Sal available today

My name is Angela Mains. I wrote the first edition of The Insider's Guide to Sal in 2005 after I had a nightmare of a time planning my trip to Sal, Cape Verde.

At that time, there were no decent guide books available. All were out of date and had very little information on Sal. So, during my stay in Sal, I extensively researched everything; visiting the hotels, looking at the rooms, eating in the restaurants, drinking in the bars, finding out about activities & excursions and investigating all those little things about Sal that I wished I'd had the answer to before I left.

As a result, The Insider's Guide to Sal, Cape Verde was born - a practical guide book that gives you comprehensive, reliable, objective and up-to-date information to help you plan and prepare for your trip to Sal.

Eight years on The Insider's Guide to Sal is still going strong as more and more tourists have flocked to visit this beautiful island - we're now on Edition 5!

FACT 1: The Insider's Guide to Sal, Cape Verde is probably the most comprehensive guide book to Sal available today

Other guide books cover all the Cape Verde islands so you get a little information about a lot of islands. If you are only going to Sal, you want detailed information about restaurants, hotels, activities and insider's tips - specifically about Sal.

The Insider's Guide to Sal, Cape Verde gives an overview of all the Cape Verde islands as well as how to get to them from Sal. But as The Insider's Guide focuses on Sal, that is where the detail is. For example, no other guide to Sal independently reviews over 20 hotels and 30 restaurants & bars. The other guides do not compare when it comes to specific details about Sal.

FACT 2: The Insider's Guide to Sal, Cape Verde is the most up-to-date guide book to Sal available today

In the publishing world, it can take up to six months to print a book once it has been written. So, even when the book is first available on the shelves the content is already more than six months old. This really matters in a country growing at a pace as fast as Cape Verde.

The Insider's Guide to Sal, Cape Verde is different. Because it is published as an eBook, it is possible to update and release new editions quickly and easily. So, the content of The Insider's Guide to Sal, Cape Verde is continuously researched and a new edition is launched at least once, if not twice a year.

That means the information you read is never more than a few months old. No other guide book can be kept so up-to-date.
