Praia, being the nation’s capital and largest city, has a higher crime rate than the rest of the country. The majority of crimes involve minor stealing, with the majority of victims being locals rather than visitors, however there have been a few occurrences involving foreigners. So, although Praia is still a fairly secure city in general, take cautious not to flash any costly jewelry or technology like as iPhones. In recent years, Cape Verde has experienced an upsurge in minor crimes perpetrated mostly by groups of young males; thus, avoid gatherings of young men, particularly at night.

Praia is very poorly illuminated at night, so be cautious in areas where there are no street lights when you are alone, and always go in couples or bigger groups for safety. If anything does happen, there are police stations located around the city, as well as a general hospital in the city center.
