THE BOTANICAL GARDENS

Considering that the interior of Sal is mostly desert, it’s quite a surprise to run across the oasis of green that is the Viveiro Botanical Garden. A pleasant stroll among the palms, surrounded by bright yellow hibiscus and fragrant oleander flowers, makes for a very different experience from careening across the desert on a quad bike – and they’ve even got a tiny zoo complete with donkeys, goats, rabbits, ducks and peacocks.
