  • little weekend planned for the KAW swamp, one of the most beautiful sites in French Guiana. A Council already booked a time in advance, we booked on the Caiman from 17: 00 to 17: 00 the next day. Arrived at the pier Ricky picked us up in the dugout for a 1 hour ride through the swamp. Wonderful time with Ricky's comments and a beautiful sunset. The ecolodge is beautiful, comfortable with a large room to live downstairs and upstairs, we find hammocks, bunk beds or rooms separate (depending on your budget) Jeannot the Cook is nice and friendly to customers. Everything is available (canoes, padles, cannes to fisheries, games...) We were with 2 children and they are feasted themselves. The meal was local hearty and friendly. The evening tour of night in the dugout looking for black caimans and glasses. Ricky grabs the Little Cayman in 2 minutes like that by dipping his hand while continuing his story. The next morning another ballad is made still beautiful with all these birds, kaipibaras, monkeys, etc... Then after lunch we brought back by a halt to the KAW village, very typical. This is great weekend with this JAL TRAVEL Agency, great team RICKY and JEANNOT. The only downside of the ecolodge is the lack of maintenance on the building (Bowl broken WC, sink leaking, door that does not close in the showers, taken questionable electric. Shame, a refresh would be necessary

  • The flora and fauna of cayenne is similar to venezuela's but even more varied. I love this park as a way to discover the land of Guiana. The guide spoke various languages and was very close to the tourists.

  • We spent a night on the JAL travel ecolodge we were only 11 people first. An unforgettable experience with the very friendly guides who have a lot of knowledge about the fauna and flora, the ballad in the dugout was great, both day and night. Great atmosphere during happy hour and dinner with the TI on. Recommend with JAL.
