    This is the market on Santiago. Had lots of opportunity to shop and look around on my own. The best thing about the whole tour was actually that Terra Terra Tours puts you directly in contact with the best local offerings, people and products. A great experience that stimulated all senses!

    De Sukupira experience is een verzameling van kleuren, geuren en gezellige kooplieden. Het Terra Terra team hielp heerlijk bij het shoppen en we hebben heerlijk gegeten tussen de locals vlakbij de markt bij een huiselijk restaurantje waar ze de kokkin en haar kinderen persoonlijk kennen. Zoals overal in Kaapverdië, hele lieve en hartelijke mensen!

    The Sukupira Experience is a collection of colors, scents and pleasant merchants. The Terra Terra team helped wonderfully with shopping and we had a delicious meal among the locals near the market at a homely restaurant where they know the cook and her children personally. Like everywhere in Cape Verde, very sweet and friendly people!

    Today a great trip to the local market in Praia! The Sukupira Experience! You will find almost EVERYTHING on the market! From cashew nuts, clothing, seats … name it, you find it, it’s a mix of local and African (Senegalese, Nigerea, Guinée Conakry) products! A must-visit!
    Especially glad that I did this with Terra Terra Tours because it really is a labyrinth in this market! In addition, I felt super safe, everyone knew Judith and Jair, I was not pulled, not called , if I was interested in something specific I also paid the usual price. After the market we went for lunch in a small bistro run by a Senegalese lady, and no problem for a vegetarian like me, nice local, no tourists, and most important… Really delicious !!! 🙂
