Pontu D'Nkontru, which translates to "meeting point" in Kriolu, is a hostel created by Kaida, an American expat who discovered the unique village of Tarrafal while tracing her African roots. She immediately fell in love with its beauty and people. She created the hostel with the motive to provide clean and inexpensive lodging while creating a "pangea" to join travelers from all over the world. She also started a free dance team "Na Pontu" for young girls ages 6-12 years old. She has truly found her sense of purpose and happiness here in Tarrafal, CV.
