This multi-cache will take you to three of the many points of interest in the beautiful island of Porto Santo. For this you will need:
Sources of information may include internet searches, the local municipal library, and the tourism information center (free maps), all available downtown at Vila Baleira, the island's mais village. Finding information in english, however, may prove to be more challenging, but the local people will help you, as the story is well known.
-a car (or a very good set of legs)
-an island road map (easy to obtain locally)
-pen and paper
- and, knowledge of the true story of the Porto Santo Prophet, which took place in the 16th century. This will provide the answers that will allow you to decypher the location of the second and third stages! Don't get started without doing your homework!
The cache hunt will surely take less than two hours, and a couple of very short walks (200 meters or less). The first one has the less accessible terrain, but we're only talking about five meters of obstacles. At each location take the time to enjoy the sites or do some trekking in the area.
At each cache you will find the hints and instructions on how to find the next one, but only the final stage has a logbook and some gifts for exchange. I've left there five wrapped surprise souvenirs for the first hunters.
Good luck, good hunt!
Small note on cache maintenance: Reports have been noted that the cache is in need of maintenance, but I am at the moment unable to attend to it. If the next geocacher could provide a new container for the first stage (tupperware boxes are available on the local market), please email me and I'll refund expenses. If not possible, I'm afraid I'll have to take the cache down from the game. Thanks for understanding.
