At A Vontade Tours, we are passionate about sharing the beauty and hospitality of Cabo Verde.

Whether we are eating cachupa at a local cafe or dancing to coladeira under the stars, on an A Vontade Tours, you will experience the authentic culture of Cabo Verde.

We believe in providing opportunities to give back to Cabo Verde through service activities, contributing to the country’s ecotourism and creating mutually beneficial partnerships with as many Caboverdean owned businesses as possible.

At A Vontade Tours, we take a personalized approach to everything from individual dietary restrictions to matching students with appropriate host families.

Total accountability is key to us and we take full responsibility for making sure our tours run smoothly from start to finish.

Joli Moniz, Owner & Creator

In July of 2012, Joli made the life-altering decision to move from New York to the West African Island nation of Cabo Verde. As a third-generation Caboverdean American or ‘Kriola,’ Joli always dreamed of moving to the country of her heritage. Within her first year of moving to Cabo Verde, Joli hosted dozens of family and friends from the U.S. who wanted to experience the beauty of the unique island nation. It was during one of these trips by an overseas visitor that Joli realized she wanted to share the hidden treasures of Cabo Verde with as many people as possible. And so, A Vontade Tours was born.

Before moving to Cabo Verde, Joli was the Director of Admission and Financial Aid at School of the Holy Child in Rye, New York. While there she helped to plan and facilitate student travel to Ghana, Portugal and China. She also served as Associate Director of Admission and Multicultural Recruitment for several years at her alma mater, Miss Porter’s School in Farmington, CT. Joli earned her B.A. in African American Studies and English from the University of Virginia.
