I was born on the island of Sao Vicente, Cabo Verde and moved to the United States when I was 7 years old. In 2003, I went back to Cabo Verde for the first time since I moved (almost 50 years). My wife and I visited a couple more times and decided we wanted to buy property in Cabo Verde. In 2006, we put a deposit on the future Copacabana condominium complex, and in 2008 it was complete and ready for our use! We've since vacationed several times and brought friends and family along with us. We hope others will be able to enjoy this beautiful island as we have been able to.
