COIN

The Cape Verdean escudos is the official currency of the country. However, the circulation of the Euro is part of the day-to-day life of Cape Verdeans, and even its circulation and acceptance in commerce / restaurants / hotels is common, especially in the more touristy islands such as Sal and Boa Vista. Generally, the quotation is around EURO 1 = 110 ECV. There are exchange locations at major international airports, and several Western Union units on the different islands, as well as banking facilities. Debit / credit cards such as Martercard or VISA are generally accepted and there are several ATMs available on different islands.
