About Praia and Places to Visit
Mercury Jets provides private jet charter flights to and from Praia, Cape Verde.
Not far from the coast of Senegal in the waters of the Atlantic Ocean lies the ancient Praia, the cultural, economic, and political center of Cape Verde. It is also the capital of the country and an important port from which sugar, fruit, and coffee are regularly shipped to European countries. Praia was founded in the 15th century and was filled with Portuguese colonists. Today it is also a world-famous resort, where visitors come from all over the world to swim in the ocean and try active recreation surrounded by majestic buildings. A temperate desert climate characterizes the region; the rainy season begins in July and ends in October. August, when it’s not as dry and hot, is perfect for a vacation.
In Praia, there are many places worthy of the attention of foreign tourists. On the plateau of the old part of town is the Plaza Alejandro de Albuquerque with its eye-catching colonial-style houses. The cozy neighborhood of Ajada de Santo António is home to critical religious buildings such as the Church of Divine Grace and the Ethnographic Museum, the Palace of Justice, and the presidential palace. Not far from here, guests can find some of the capital’s best restaurants, bars, and nightclubs. On the north-eastern edge of the Old City is a central market where you can buy traditional African clothing. In addition, there are souvenirs, cheap local music CDs, and the products of local craftsmen. Moreover, Praia is widely known for its festivals and national festivals, one of them, the International Creole Jazz Festival, in April, where lectures, concerts, exhibitions, and film screenings are often held.
Nelson Mandela International Airport (RAI, GVNP) is a few miles from the center of Praia and is excellent for landing private charters.
