Can you save money?

Yes. Getting out of the country is very expensive!! If you don't leave you will save money. - May 18, 2014
Yes, if you make good choices and don't travel too much. - Feb 2, 2011
YES! If you don't travel outside of CV and buy local products you can save money here. If you buy all imported Western products and escape to Lisbon or Boston every two months you will not. - Sep 8, 2012
If you don't leave Cape Verde, maybe. Services are cheap. Things aren't. Gas is $9 a gallon. - May 23, 2012
Yes, but the prices are really expensive when compared to other places in the West African region. - Sep 19, 2009
Absolutely. - Feb 6, 2008
