From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Tourism in Cape Verde, a group of islands off the coast of Senegal, contributed $41 million to the country's economy in the year 2000. The hotel industry contributed 2.0% to GDP in 1997, which increased to 6.8% in 2001. The number of tourists increased from approximately 45,000 in 1997 to more than 115,000 in 2001. Most of these tourists were from Italy and Portugal.[1] The islands have a pleasant climate during most of the year, and there is impressive mountain scenery and white sandy beaches.[1] Diving, windsurfing, sailing and trekking are available to tourists.[2]
