Maio, Cape Verde's Last Paradise…

Maio, the Dream… the Reality…

Although the world’s economic slow down has hampered Cape Verde’s development somewhat, it is still one of the hottest tourist and retirement destinations for Europeans, the distinction which was held by the Canaries a few years ago. The reason for this is CV is a very special place and of course the news media and web sites, are painting an idyllic portrait of it. The TV depiction of bikini-clad tourists frolicking on Sal’s fabulous beach is difficult to resist. Maio’s great potential and endless beaches are even a greater siren’s call.

But there are two sides to all of this… the Reality and the Dream.

Maio’s reality is the stuff that dreams are made of… but there is that one glaring reality which cannot be overlooked. One thing is for certain; the people and especially the government are not dictated by time and will not be pressured by it. This is the most difficult reality for Europeans to accept. Those that cannot, return north with a faded dream. Those that do stay will reserve a front-row seat for the future and reap the rewards from the reality that is Maio.

If patience is not one of your virtues, don’t come to Maio! Will this change in the future? Of course, Lanzarote did… All things change with tim… but Maio doesn’t seem to have a time frame for change. We’ll just have to be patient until then.
