Trying to identify the name of a store right near the port  (1 Answer)

Hi. I went to Ponta Delgada in late 2014 on a cruise. Great place. I am trying to find out the name (and contact info) for a store right near the port that sold souvenirs, food, wine, etc. It was on the main street that goes along the water. They have a large cow statue outside of their store. They also gave out tasting samples of jam/jellies. I purchased several and would like to get more. If anyone can help, I would appreciate it. Thanks.

Public transport to Lagoa do Fogo  (6 Answers)

Hello,

We (2 people in their 20s) will be going to Sao Miguel in a week. We don't have a driving license and want to use public transport as much as possible. I found a lot of interesting places on the bus map but there is one place I can't find - the Lagoa do Fogo. Is there a bus stop within walking distance to it? Even if we have to walk 1 hour that would still bring us closer.

We will staying at the Bahia Palace in Agua Alta. I read that there's a hiking trail from the hotel to Lagoa do Fogo from there but it takes 4 hours.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Which islands?  (2 Answers)

Just discovered how easy it is to get to Azores from US. Planning a trip in May, 2014. Looks like we will stay on Sao Miguel but would like to visit 1 or 2 more islands during our one week stay. Is ferry the most cost effective way to go between islands? Which islands would be the best to visit for a day trip? Or should we stay a couple days on other islands? Any help is greatly appreciated.

We are on the March 30, 2014 cruise to Rome from Fort Lauderdale, and are interested in seeing the ports and stops privately rather than with the cruise line excursions. Has someone out there been on this cruise and what is the best way to see the ports and the centres visited. Our stops include Ponta Delgada, Cadiz, Almeria, Cartagena, Rome, Olympia, Santorini, Rhodes, Ephesus, Athens and Gythion. Or if someone is also on this cruise I would be interested in communication with you.

Sight Seeing and Genealogy Research in Ponta Delgada, Azores  (1 Answer)

I will be arriving in Ponta Delgada on April 6, 2014 and would like to know if there are any locals that can speak English and would be willing to take my wife on a tour for a reasonable price to see the main points of interest. In addition, I would also like to be taken to a records office to look for potential relatives. All my great grandparents were born in the Azores on my mother's side. I know the Machado one came from Terceira, the Cunha (or da Cuhna) from Graciosa, but my great grandmother who married Manuel Cunha, Mary Josephine Coelho Ramos born 11 Aug 1866 might have come from Sao Miguel. I would like to look into it if possible. Any help would be appreciated for the tour and possible records office. Thank you.

Sunday visit - short day trip or is town open enough?  (2 Answers)

Arriving Sunday, October 30, 2011, from 10:00 to 18:00. I would prefer a quick visit to Sete Cidades for the scenery followed by a meal of local cuisine in Porta Delgada and then a little casual in-town pedestrian tourism, but I read that October weather is likely to obscure the views. I also read that most shops and restaurant are closed on Sunday. This is disappointing. Any suggestions?
