Take a breather and relax under the sun's heat. Sao Tome and Principe offers several relaxing activities for everyone to enjoy, including cycling and shore fishing.

Grab your towel and try out a range of water-based activities, such as swimming. If you're up for it, check out snorkeling.

Traditional food and drink are an essential part of a country's heritage. Awaken your adventurous side and learn more about the local tradition by sampling various dishes.

Experience some of the flavors of this region by sampling foods featuring some popular local ingredients, taro and cocoa.

Curious to find out what authentic cuisine is like in this area? Don't pack your bags until you dig into ljogo (cabbage and smoked fush stew) or polvo a sao tome (octopus).

No culinary experience is truly complete without chocolate, a beloved local dessert.

There are plenty of beverage options offered here that are perfect for those who aren't in the mood for alcohol. Soft drink is much-loved by the locals.

One of the joys of travel is learning new languages, so why not familiarize yourself with some practical Portuguese expressions during your travels? For example, Tem um bom dia, which means have a nice day, can be heard spoken in all the major cities. Also, knowing Muito agradecidos, which translates to thank you, is going to be another useful tool to have in your arsenal.

If you're prone to feeling a swelling of national pride, circle the 12th of July in your planner so you remember Independence Day, a national celebration.

Pack your bags, buy some souvenirs with your remaining dobras and say, "Adeus" to Principe Island.
