Comments on Riu all inclusive
are few hotels in Boavista and the better ones are not within easy reach of bars or restaurants so the Riu Karamboa will be no exception. The Riu is
the hotel that all the biggest European tour operators are selling,
including Thomson. (Be careful to get a full price quote with all the extras including taxes, food on plane, luggage etc). For those seeking a true package holiday experience in the
sun without knowing you are in the Cape Verdes, this may be the the place. The beach on the West coast of Boavista is spectacular and you can walk for miles along it.
