  • The islands of Salvation are composed of 3 Islands; one of the three cannot be visited the tour at feet of the main island is done in about 1:30 on the course, the remains of buildings from the time of the prison he lack of annotations on the ruins; impossible to know with precision what it was at the time the landscapes are magnificent; monkeys, macaws and agoutis in freedom feeling of not being in Guyana MAGNIFICENT

  • Witness to a historical franco-Guyanais, this site is must-visit. Depending on the season, crossing is more or less enjoyable. The ccommodation is available at all levels, basic, adventurous, with the comfort of a real hotel, it is according to your tastes. On the other hand, the basic restoration is shameful, not to give advice to lovers and especially not gourmet. Very pleasant stay during the week, less the weekend too crowded. Absolutely avoid the days of firing of the rocket because your stay will be shortened due to security.
