If abject poverty is your thing Sao Tome is the place for you. Even the government buildings i downtown are in disrepair except the presidential palace. The only highlight of our visit was our tour guide Nelvin of Biotour-STP. He was proud of his island...More

Take a respite from the hot steamy climate of equatorial Sao Tome and hire a local cab to take you up to the cool hills. For a reasonable price (negotiate) you can get an air-conditioned car or van to drive you over often-rutted roads through...More

We can highly recommend the French-owned agency, Mistral, who organised a good day's trip to see the Monte Café and Bombain plantations. Ideally we would have liked to have visited Agostinho Neto cacau plantation as well on the same tour, but this isn't on offer....More

I've been there with my girlfriend and two guides and it was really difficult to reach the top. We did it in two days, there's no signs and even our guides lost. From the top you can see all the island and the view is...More

The mountain peak is very picturesque, but not as impressive as Pico Con Grande, the tubular tower.

Hey there, I am looking forward to Sao Tome next week and wanted to know where I should hire a cab to take me to the hills/mountains and how much it would cost? I am looking to stay on the west coast most of the time in Mucumbli and Jale - is it easy to do both hiking and snorkeling from that side of the island or should I spend some time on the east coast as well?
