The CEO of Medweb since 1992, Peter (Pete) Killcommons draws on decades of experience in the medical field in areas ranging from radiology to disaster response. Throughout his career, Peter Killcommons has traveled to places such as Cabo Verde, Africa, to support the spread of medical advances such as telemedicine.
A former colony of Portugal, Cabo Verde consists of approximately a dozen islands off the west coast of Africa. These islands, originally formed by volcanoes, encompass a diverse range of scenery, including white sand beaches, mountains, deserts, and volcanic landscape. Sunny and warm throughout the year, they also offer an experience of indigenous culture.
With a history ranging from slavery to piracy, Cabo Verde has become a stable democratic republic. A lesser-known vacation site, its islands still retain their original unspoiled glory.
International airports stand on the islands of Boa Vista, Sal, Santiago, and Sao Vicente, but the other islands have regional airports and ferry service, so tourists can easily visit. The capital city of Praia, located on Santiago, also offers car rentals.
