Hotel Jaguar, Sao Felipe, Fogo, Cape Verdes

Looking out towards Brava

The Hotel Jaguar is built around a swimming pool in the upper part of the town of Sao Felipe with a view down over scrubby downs to the sea far below. Originally built in the tradition of government hotels, it has been rebuilt and repainted in vibrant orange and yellow to match the sunshine.

Its 19 rooms are well furnished and mostly have baths with hot water. You can see Brava, when the clouds disperse on a fine day. It is well run by a Portuguese lady and offers Fogo wines from the volcano and a nice restaurant with mostly Portuguese style food. Sometimes there is fresh fish. It is easily the best hotel in Fogo and is good value at £200 per week per person

Pedra Brabo

The Pedra Brabo is sited insider the volcano crater and has youth hostel style washing facilities with cold water and a complete lack of service. It is only for the day before the big climb.
