  • The market is a treat of smells, very friendly producers. The "Museum" of the butterflies is a must which justifies the €4.

  • The best soup of my life! People simple, clean, no frills really an awesome time! I wish I could find it in Europe

  • Everyone makes a world of cocoa, in my opinion, it's a little visit for Sunday morning, but the market is a market (nothing different than Cayenne), Museum of insects and must (€4 memory) but very interesting, well there is always the lower world and visit with the guide's can be a bit long because the guide speaks beaaaucoup (we see it is that passion insects) has not to be missed: the Potter (take the street that goes up behind the Museum) very exciting and its creations are top!
