Ilet la Mere, Cayenne

4.4
#2 of 8 in Nature in French Guiana
Take a boat ride to Ilet la Mere to observe a community of social monkeys eagerly awaiting to be fed with any snacks you may bring. With some luck, you'll see dolphins and sea turtles along the way. Palm trees just off the shoreline provide excellent shade and create an outstanding picnic spot. Take one of the trails across the island to get a glimpse of local plant and animal life, followed by a cooling dip in the seawater.

  • I stayed on the island in a day, unlike what people say, it's not too. He y' has several circuits to go for a walk in the forest. Of course apart from the lush forest, impressive trees, the lighthouse of the island attraction is of course the calmer, it's wonderful to be able to approach them, pet them and they are not shy at all, they come to you and do not hesitate to come take the food so caution but I repeat it is an adventure, so do!

  • Beautiful sunny day on this island of Guyana where the only inhabitants are wages, small monkeys very familiar that ride you on it. A small corner swim and NAP in the hammock ave the sounds of the waves. Only downside, the owner of the boat Grandpa No. might be a little more friendly and smiling, we had the impression to disturb him

  • The island is superb, with lots of monkeys that climb you on it as soon as you open a bag, looking for food. Around the island takes about an hour or so, discovery of wildlife and flora, beautiful views. At the start of the small port (soon closed) Dégrad of Cannes, the boat drops us off (must 'jump' of the boat at the dock in stone, so disabled is not available or if disabled). We stayed 5 hours approximately knew the island which was a little too long for our taste because there is nothing on the island apart from nature. Do without hesitation because very nice but finding a "visit" less long.

  • Fun half day. Islet full of monkeys who will welcome you for your arrival...

  • Fun excursion with his little monkeys very familiar and sometimes a little intrusive. Walk around the island in the jungle with too few points of view on the surrounding landscape. Few "passable" beaches. Still worth but half a day is enough.
