We do not list the smallest "Cabo Verde" airports, since there is no way to provide you flights from those airports. AirGorilla offers flights, hotels, and rental car reservations for Cape Verde.

The Republic of Cape Verde or Cape Verde (Portuguese: Cabo Verde) is a republic located on an archipelago in the Macaronesia ecoregion of the North Atlantic Ocean, off the western coast of Africa. The previously uninhabited islands were discovered and colonized by the Portuguese in the 15th century. The country is named after Cap-Vert (meaning Green Cape), now in Senegal, the westernmost point of continental Africa.

Cape Verde is in the tropical zone. Average temperatures range from 24 C (75 F) in January and February to 29 C (85 F) in September. The average annual rainfall for Cape Verde is 68.4 mm, with September the wettest month with 33.6 mm. Conversely, the months April to July record less than one millimetre of rainfall each.

Cape Verde was uninhabited when the Portuguese arrived in 1456 and made the islands part of the Portuguese empire. Due to its location off the coast of Africa, Cape Verde became an important watering station, then sugar cane plantation site, and later a major center of the slave trade.

In 1975, the islands achieved independence, partly due to the efforts of the African Party for the Independence of Guinea-Bissau and Cape Verde (PAIGC). After independence, the PAIGC attempted to unite Cape Verde and Guinea-Bissau into one nation, the PAIGC controlling both governments, but a coup in the latter nation in 1980 ended these plans.

Cape Verde is an archipelago off the west coast of Africa at 15.02N, 23.34W. It is formed by 10 main islands and about 8 islets. The main islands are: Barlaventos (northern island group): Santo Antao, Sao Vicente, Santa Luzia, Sao Nicolau, Sal, Boa Vista. Sotaventos (southern island group): Maio, Santiago, Fogo, Brava. Of these, only Santa Luzia and the five islets are uninhabited. Presently it is a Natural Reserve. All islands are volcanic, but an active volcano only exists on one of the islands, Fogo.
