Ilet la Mere, Cayenne

4.4
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.

  • Very wild place... a little perilous drop-off for persons with reduced mobility. Large walk in the island with lots of animals everywhere and monkeys as curious and looking for food... very nice but do not have to enter... risk of bite and as they were used to research at the Pasteur Institute, passage to mandatory hospital... Long break in anticipation of the return of the boat... at least plans to drink... no possibility to drink on site...

  • the island is less interesting than other sites in French Guiana but nice. Not more than 1/2 day. Mischievous and thieving monkeys at the pier. Pretty ballad

  • The pilot of the ship is only on board. To land on the island support the front of the boat against a pier. Landing difficult not to say perilous for a person with little balance and impossible for a person with reduced mobility, the tour of the island is nice to perform the many monkeys and funny. They are not aggressive and it and a change of scenery guaranteed. A... If it is not disabled.

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.
