Cacao Village, French Guiana

Visit Cacao Village, a town surrounded by fields of orchids, and shop for local products. The village, as a Hmong community, is most famous for its Sunday market, where you’ll find a lively atmosphere of locals selling exotic produce, flowers, arts, and crafts. Settle down on one of the market benches and be sure to try the local soup specialty. Once you’re done browsing, visit the nearby butterfly farm to view a colorful array of plants and insects.

  • The Hmong are probably people very friendly, but let's be clear: the Sunday market has absolutely no interest. 3 stalls of bananas and lemons to, the rest of pseudo handicrafts and the majority of the place made up of Asian restaurants... It has been 5' and gone immediately...

  • A market has typical cocoa and eat on-site, c is ideal, to discover the local cuisine, after especially don't miss the butterfly Museum, there are of course beautiful butterflies but spiders, the scorpion... And the gentleman who explains is a passionate, really j has not seen i pass the time, and I would have wanted to as he recounts his adventures still for hours! The Guyana is in this small, awesome building!

  • A piece of the huge forest, Hmong made this village, a Guyanese agriculture Center. Every Sunday is a very local, very colourful market where you can eat specialties. There is also a museum devoted to insects, spiders, butterflies, and local life blue glider... the guide is an attraction in itself.
