A country without particular criticality
Cape Verde, in terms of security and public order, is generally referred to as "a country without particular criticality". Cape Verde is a safe country. Nonetheless, in the areas of greatest tourist flow it is always prudent to implement the preventive rules to avoid thefts, pick-pocketing and other episodes of micro-crime. It is good practice to observe the rules of not trusting occasional friendships, not giving tips to children, not going to areas and beaches not frequented, not showing off wealth, not photographing minors, police and military sites. Although in the tourist areas and in the capital there are hospitals, before going to the archipelago, it is good practice to take out an insurance policy that provides for the return home in case of serious health conditions.
