Internet is available in Sal Rei but it is slow compared to European speeds.
Some of our apartments have wired internet fitted.
Many bars and restaurants offer free WIFI, when you purchase food and drink.
Your mobile phone operator will tell you if they can provide internet on Boa Vista. Not every provider can so it is worth checking before you leave. And remember to check the prices, most people arrive home to at least a 100 euro bill. Please remember Cape Verde isn’t in Europe.
If you want continuous internet access whilst you are here the easiest solution is to buy a SIM card. There are 2 providers, CV Telecom or Unitel. You cannot buy a SIM card from the airport, you have to visit one of the 2 shops in Sal Rei.
SIM card price example (correct as at 01/04/2020): SIM card plus 6GB of data is 19 Euros.
The SIM card is useable all over Cape Verde, so it is great for anyone island hopping.
We can organise for a SIM card with data to be ready and waiting for you at your apartment, please ask us for more information.
The country code for Cape Verde is +238.
