We discuss why December holidays in Cape Verde present one of the best times of year for visiting this stunning and diverse archipelago.

December is one of the best and most rewarding times of the year for paying a visit to the stunning Cape Verde archipelago, and for countless reasons. Escaping the dreary weather in the UK is always a big incentive, especially considering that Cape Verde enjoys eight hours of sunshine a day throughout the month, as well as average temperature highs of 27°C - over 20°C higher than London!
