Have just returned from Madeira, where the authorities are working hard to clear roads and clean up Funchal, but it will be a very long job, maybe months or years to repair everything.
Part of central Funchal is open again, with shops, cafes etc needing tourists. West of the town, the newer, concrete section, is not damaged, but the region where the 2 main rivers emerge is a mess, with most shops closed or damaged, and the promenade and old town inaccessible still on 1st March. The cable cars to Monte were back in operation.
The motorway is open, but the road from Ribeira Brava to Sao Vincente is too badly damaged to reopen in the immediate future, so the North and West is difficult to access quickly.
Finally, watch out for the water. 4 of us were all infected via food or water, and spent 24 hours incapacitated, now slowly recovering. Many people on the plane back had the same infection. Possible a result of the broken water and sewage systems?
