    We attend this place twice. The first time to pick up a sandwich at momo, so really place of passage without interest. The second time because there was the party Aboriginal (I don't remember the exact name) and there the place to made most sense: place of meeting, starting the parade, instead of party and meal... already more interesting and more alive. It's still a very nice place of greenery in the middle of this town.

    Whether for a drink with the Palm trees of the place in the bar décor of Palm and the facades of the colourful traditional Creole houses, attend one of the many events held on this places or eat on the go at night in one of the many food trucks, this place is the beating heart of the city!

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.
