Ilet la Mere, Cayenne

4.6
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.

  • 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.

  • After half an hour of boat you will be welcomed by a bunch of monkeys calmer, adorable. If you have food, hide, because they are very greedy. Easy stroll to the circle of the islet, and of course swimming.

Where to stay in Cayenne

Appealing to a rather exclusive set of travelers, chain hotels and resorts in the west of town offer a great range of luxury services, modern facilities, and rooms overlooking the river. Step back from the water to find humbler lodgings at basic hotels, guesthouses, and rental properties catering to budget-conscious travelers.
