The resurgence of Cape Verde - The ‘European Caribbean’

Prior to the global downturn and the credit crunch Cape Verde had an average air temperature of 26 degrees, average sea temperatures of 23 degrees with very little rain and stunning white sand beaches and turquoise sea. It was only a five and a half hour flight from the UK with no jet lag from Gatwick, Manchester and Birmingham. Surprise surprise this hasn’t changed! Now is a really good time to invest in Cape Verde with property prices having dipped in the last 18 months and with the pound +15% stronger against the Euro, buyers can take advantage of some great deals. Cape Verde TOPA (, specialise in property investment in Cape Verde, the ‘European Caribbean’, selling to investors in the UK and elsewhere. In addition to the year round sunshine, Cape Verde has a democratic stable government and an economy which has continued to grow at 4-5% during the global downturn with inflation at 1.5%. The economy was recently assessed by the IMF – ‘Cape Verde’s economic and policy performance remains strong’. This stable economic background coupled with tourist arrivals increasing at an annual rate of 25 %t with a projected one million tourists a year by 2015 makes Cape Verde an ideal place to invest now. Infrastructure is improving, with new projects for wind and solar power and desalination plants, improving road systems and airports and ports being expanded.
