Marshes of Caw, Cayenne

4.5
#1 of 11 in Parks in French Guiana
Hike or take a guided boat tour of Marshes of Caw to see a diverse range of bird and animal life, from snakes and caiman to capybara. Tours of the marshes happen day and night, in search of caiman and a glimpse of the rare and colorful Andean cock-of-the-rock. You can also take independent hikes on the jungle trails through bamboo forests and swamps, spotting poison dart frogs and monkeys. Consider extending your stay overnight at the floating lodge, where you can eat, sleep, and set out again in the morning.

    Party with the AA Guyana tourism provider, it was a great walk! We arrived late, could not be contacted to prevent because no network, and we waited for us. Explanations, great! The visit of the village was very nice. We saw birds of different species. Lunch on carbet piles with a beautiful bed of Sun, it's nice! And research caimans overnight, really great! On the other hand, provide a small wool, because once night falls, it's cool (I kept a souvenir with a cold LOL).

    I have experienced the swamps of kaw sleep a night. (End of 2015) The area is beautiful and very timeless. The staff is welcoming and we had well eaten. Except that day he y' has had 2 small hics, one of the employees was very upset for a story of daughter and ca has heated in front of customers that we were. Is he angry with the canoe, we had fear Quil can't get. Also during our night tour a caiman bit the mouth of our colleague who has had the idea jumped to try to kiss him. Apart from these episodes that have driven our evening, this place is magical. But once that is enough.

    Possibility to do the tour during the day or in the evening if you want the chance to glimpse the Caymans. If your budget allows feel free to sleep on the ecolodge! It's just magical to be able to fall asleep and wake up with this landscape! Thanks to Ricky for his friendly gesture when my husband on the ecolodge's birthday and for his good mood in General!

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.
