In our Pousada and our beach restaurant we hear often from national and international turists complaints about taxi drivers, bus drivers and unofficial turist guids whose gave wrong or uncomplete informations about Hotels, Pousadas, Restaurants and sight seeing points on the island.
It is possible that these people are not well trained on turistic area or they will receive a commission from certain locals to get some customers.


Therefore it can happen that the turist will end up in a local which do not correspondend with the desired quality or price range.
Our recommendation: If you want to visit the island the first time ask for informations about the desired destination. These informations you can get in a travel agency, a turist information point or better by phone from the desired local you want to visit on the island.
