Ilet la Mere, Cayenne
(4.2/5 based on 30+ reviews on the web)
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. Arrange your visit to Ilet la Mere and discover more family-friendly attractions in Cayenne using our Cayenne holiday planner.
