Taxi in Cape Verde is cheap and common transportation option. Fares are almost fixed, but it is possible to negotiate. So it is best to know fares.

For example, Sal airport to Santa Maria town = 1000-1200 CVE (1200 CVE during the night time).

1000 CVE = 9.034 EUR. You may pay euros, but it will be cheaper to pay local currency.
