  • Before, the port was completely silting, and filled with mangrove. We could see many waterfowl and even the Red Ibis by time, now everything is clean, clear and empty, there are fishermen, and everything works in appearance. It's not very interesting

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.
