The best destinations for summer 2018

Here we are again talking about holidays ... because when the temperature rises and the days get longer, the mind inevitably finds itself dreaming of more and more trips. We personally have already drawn up our wish list and we want to share with you some destinations that have particularly attracted our attention . Each of them is perfect to visit in the summer and has a unique mix of sun, nature and culture. Good exploration!

1. Cape Verde, Africa

Still rather unspoiled, the archipelago of Cape Verde has always been a crossroads of different cultures; here, in fact, the inhabitants have African, Portuguese, Mediterranean and Latin American origins that blend together creating a fascinating mosaic of contrasts, as well as the strong natural environment of the islands: from the arid and lunar hinterland to the hills covered with luxuriant vegetation up to the wild and sunny beaches bathed by a sea that invites to diving. A perfect mix of unspoiled nature, nightlife and water sports (thanks to the wind and the waves).

When to go : all year round; our summer coincides with the wet season, but rainfall here hardly ever lasts more than a day and is practically absent on the islands of Sal, Boavista and Maio.

A popularity due above all to its natural beauty, made of glaciers, thermal springs, volcanoes, geysers and high peaks and charming villages and welcoming despite the harsh climate. And 'thanks to all these attractions that during the summer the country is quite crowded, but this is obviously also the best season to visit it.
